Listen to this:

Then read this:

We did some 'slam poetry' last year for our Christmas Eve service...This was what we used for Joy. Read it a couple nights ago and found encouragement from it. Hope you might too. "Joy sings loudest in the midst of the storm"

It’s more than a smile.
More than laughter that lasts for a while.
More than a poor soul in denial.
More than a happy-go-lucky kind of style.
It’s contented delight.
In the midst of the night.
When things aren’t quite right.
It’s satisfaction despite,
The Fear and the fright.
It’s a baby leaping in a mother’s womb
At the coming of the One who empties the tomb.
Its shepherds and angels sharing good news
Of the birth of a light that can’t be diffused.
Joy sings loudest in the midst of the storm
It’s melody salvation, because Christ is born.

We would not know the meaning of joy without the existence of sorrow. I'm so glad that Jesus is my JOY.

:Our Joy: should never be related to our circumstances, it is a Gift of the Holy Spirit.
We wish you JOY and PEACE,
How about a visit?
