December 13th, Advent

Happy Joy Day!


The third Sunday of Advent is when we light the pink candle and celebrate the joy that Mary felt on hearing about the gift she would be bringing to the world.
“My soul magnifies the Lord”, she sang.


What song does our heart sing? Today? This month?


Today I remember my Dad – this would have been his birthday. He brought me so much joy – including the gift and love of music.   He began life with many difficulties, some of which needed surgeries at a very young age.  Think back to 1934 and what the practice of medicine looked like then.

Move forward to the medical advances today.  I am thankful for those who are healing, and lift up those who await treatments.  Is this part of JOY? 

Today I search for all the things that bring me joy. 

What about you?
