There is Joy

The third Sunday of Advent is about joy. We all may have our own definition of joy so this is just a list of joy. First is a definition from an online dictionary, the rest are quotes from a variety of sources. How would you describe joy?

Joy - a feeling of great pleasure and happiness.

“If you carry joy in your heart, you can heal any moment.” Carlos Santana

“Find a place inside where there’s joy, and the joy will burn out the pain.” Joseph Campbell

“The healthiest response to life is joy.” Mark Twain

“Where there is love, there is joy.” Mother Teresa

We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves.” Buddha
