A joyful heart is good medicine. (Proverbs 17:22)
Joy comes to me through Amethyst, she is always making us smile and laugh. She is full of ideas about the world. She is sometimes quiet with other people outside our family but she is full of energy (except in the mornings).
Whenever there’s a hug at home she will join in and call “group hug!” She grins when our chooks follow her, a lamb is frolicking around or she finds our cat Edelweiss curled up on her bed. She is a funny, kind hearted person and she finds joy in so many activities including drawing and blackberry-picking and she has dreams of being an artist. Ω
Reflect: Who brings you joy? Give thanks to God for this person … and maybe share the joy by telling them, with gratitude!
What is this? Lent is the 40 days, excluding Sundays, before Easter. Traditionally it is a time of reflection and pilgrimage. To help you on this journey, Sanctuary has put together 40 stories from people both within and beyond the congregation, with associated questions for reflection and prayer. A reading will be uploaded every day of Lent. This year’s theme is Fruit of the Spirit. Why? Read this. #Lent2022. Real People, Real Stories: 40 Readings for Lent © Sanctuary, 2022.
