Restoring the Joy

On my advent page, I've been talking about restoring joy during this season. Today I share a few thoughts about the need to mourn our losses before joy can come. 

Sometimes we try to be so positive and 'relentlessly happy' that we don't take the time to recognize the reason for our loss of joy. If that's been you or someone you know, you may be encouraged by reading my thoughts about it here  (apologies - this post is no longer available).

Wishing you unexpected graces and pleasures to fill your day!


  1. Joy drifts in and out depending upon how much I allow myself to wallow. I'm following your link for sure...

  2. This is so, so true. I absolutely love your bird image - it's beautiful!

  3. I just love Cardinal Couples!

    Wishing you a joyful day!♥

  4. keeping busy, leaves little time for!


To My Beautiful Readers,

Some people come into our lives, leave footprints on our hearts, and we are never the same. ~ Franz Peter Schubert
