What if Joy were always Possible?









Joy is the fruit of gratitude.

And gratitude is rooted in perspective.

And when one’s rooted in Christ, one has been given the gift of the eyes that really see.


So joy is always possible.

As long as thanks to God is possible, then joy in God is always possible.

Joy is always possible.

~One Thousand Gifts
