• Live to shed joys on others. Thus best shall be your own happiness secured.  Henry Ward Beecher
  • Every morning is a free opportunity to find God's extraordinary joy in the most ordinary places.
  • The joy that you give to others is the joy that comes back to you.
  • Add to your joy by counting your blessings.

From the Bible:

  • Bring joy to your servant, Lord, 
       for I put my trust in you. Psalm 86:4
  • When anxiety was great within me, 
       your consolation brought me joy. Psalm 94:19
  • A wise son brings joy to his father, but a foolish son brings grief to his mother. Proverbs 10:1
  • For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Hebrews 2:2
  • But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,  gentleness and self-control. Galatians 5:22
