Evening Sky in December

Joy (by Annette L. Sherwood, 2005)
Joy
the unexpected day and time
the gift has been given

Joy
it has come again
it is a wonderful gift of a smile
of a laugh
of a candle flickering
sunshine in the window on your shoulder

Joy
in your bright eyes
in your journey to God

Joy
resides within me to the point of abundance
blessings on those who have blessed me this day

Joy
in your childlike enthusiasm to preach
and in another's warm handshake
in the crisp air

Joy
in the expectancy of the season
in the love of my heart

Joy
in knowing that I am your beloved child

Joy
in feeling worthy and loved

Joy
in seeing my children well and happy

Joy
Love
and
Peace
embrace me
during this beautiful season
of Joy

Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Faithfulness, Gentleness, Generosity, Self-Control - The Fruit of the Spirit, GAL 5:22-23
