Joy, Joy, Joy…….

joy joy joy

Joy, Joy, Joy, down in my heart!

As I drank my coffee this morning this song came to my thoughts!

“I’ve got the joy, joy, joy, down in my heart! Where? Down in my  heart!!”

My first thought was “YES!” I do have joy down in my heart! My second thought was “sometimes I need to move that joy to my face!”

Having joy deep down inside is good, we need to have joy each and every day and having it deep down is important! We need it to be deep not superficial. All I am saying is sometimes we need to inform our face that we have joy down deep! Bring that joy up front and let it shine on your beautiful face!



It’s What You Do When Nobody Is Looking!

It’s the kind words
A simple smile
More than showing up
Going the extra mile
It’s giving everything
When you’ve got nothing left
Sharing a little hope
With a single breath
That’s how you change the world

Those are lyrics to a Newsboys song called “That’s How You Change The World”  and I couldn’t agree more!  It is what we do when nobody is in the room, behind closed doors, it is when we go the extra mile, it is when we take time to smile. Have we ever passed by someone we knew was hurting? Why not take a moment to smile or ask if you can help?  This IS how we change the world….share love with others and be grateful! Show gratitude everyday by our actions.

Be love.



good morning sunshineIt is a brand new day with an amazing new opportunity!! What opportunity you ask?? Well…to start again!  A big ol do-over!  IF you need it, and if not, well then it is an opportunity to be a blessing to another! How you ask? Smile! Encourage! Spread JOY!  Take this opportunity to respond and not react to situations as they arise today!  Be joyful and don’t be afraid to show it!

OK, off I go into the day! Yes, with a smile on my face! And the reminder to take a moment to smile at another, take a moment to consider the problem before I react! No reacting, only responding after thought! Yes indeed have a great day!
