May you have:
A world of wishes at your command.
God and his angels close to hand.
Friends and family their love impart,
and Irish blessings in your heart!

Finding Joy in Winter

Today I join Meri for Share the Joy Thursday.   For I believe we need to find it in my life every day no matter the realities in which we live.  God is Good in so many ways even in times of trial.

Joy comes in many forms.
And this day has the potential of
being just as grand as
celebrating the beauty in
all that surrounds me.

must be open to it!

Cold and icy day
Cause dreams of warmer places
 And of warmer times.

Times that warm the heart
Joys to numerous to count
That makes it all cool!!!

When it gets frigid and cold we always want it warmer...When it's hot and humid we want cooler!  We are never happy!  But the joy is in the memories!


Thanks be to God!!!


Please visit Rebecca at recuerda mi corazon for Haiku My Heart. There is always more beautiful words  there to enchant and encourage!!!

This is such good thoughts to start a new year … joy is in many places, if we just keep our eyes open, and as you say, welcome it!
