I imbed wrinkles on faces—lines that tell life’s stories. A shared moment of laughter, a secret joke amongst friends, all bring remembrance lines. They are memories of the most delightful occasions and I like to call these enchanting little roadmaps, Felicity.
Ah, I have not introduced myself have I? Where are my manners?
My name is Joy, and I have the best job in the world!
I was created by the Creator with one thing in mind: to share a bit of me where ever I go and with whomever crosses my path.
I have so many stories to share with you from my seemingly endless encounters with you creatures. Yes, many stories that fill my heart with gladness. But today, I can only afford one. I have to give a piece of me every moment, so surely you can understand my reasoning to come back another day to share more.
This little story is so precious! A husband who loves so deeply, that he planned a surprise for his beloved wife. A visit from a dear friend.
You couldn’t possibly understand the extent to which I was absorbed into this wife’s soul that day unless you were there to see her face when she saw her long-time friend. Surprise is not my gig, but once that fleeting feeling was gone, she was filled with me. Yes, complete and utter emotion of me!
She so needed her close friend at that moment in time, only true love could have know of this need, and called for her long-time friend. Her emotions ran the full gamete; surprised and uncertain of the events for a fleeting moment. Next realization (crying of course), to happy, grateful, feeling loved. I am not human so I can’t tell you the range of emotions that can be felt. I only know me, Joy— and when all was said and done, her heart was filled with Joy.
She experienced the powerful emotion of great symphony that day. Joy. Yes, that is me.
I hope you experience me quite often or at least have an experience with me that you hold tightly to. I hope that your heart is filled with Felicity and your face has the remembrance lines to prove it!
Look for me. I am everywhere. I hope to encounter you soon.
