"Joyful, All Ye Nations, Rise!"

            Have you had your Joy Juice today?  Christmas is only about three weeks away, that’s the reason I’m asking!

            Many of us miss the JOY of Christmas because we are focusing on the wrong things.  We are stressing over what gifts to buy our loved ones; we are racing to get to all the activities that the season brings.  Often we are so tired by the time Christmas gets here, we can’t truly enjoy the day.

            Let’s remind one another that we CAN do something about that!  It’s our choice.  Listen to the words of this beautiful Christmas carol to be reminded of what Christmas is truly about:

Hark! the herald angels sing, - 
"Glory to the newborn King!
Peace on earth, and mercy mild,
God and sinners reconciled."
Joyful, all ye nations, rise,
Join the triumph of the skies;
With th' angelic host proclaim,
"Christ is born in Bethlehem."
Hark! the herald angels sing,
"Glory to the newborn King!”

            Just as the song implies, we have THE BEST reason to be shouting and singing glory to our Lord!  Let’s tell everyone about the birth of Jesus.  We may already have our Christmas Wish list but let’s make sure that we also have a Christmas “share” list…..Find those who need to know about the real meaning of the season.  Then share the true joy of Christmas!

          Lift your voice in song as you drink your Joy Juice and celebrate the birth of the KING of JOY!!!!!!
