joy!

Peace is joy at rest, and joy is peace on its feet.  ~Anne Lamott

When you do things from your soul, you feel a river moving in you, a joy.  ~Rumi

You are goodness and mercy and compassion and understanding. You are peace and joy and light. You are forgiveness and patience, strength and courage, a helper in time of need, a comforter in time of sorrow, a healer in time of injury, a teacher in times of confusion. You are the deepest wisdom and the highest truth; the greatest peace and the grandest love. You are these things. And in moments of your life you have known yourself as these things. Choose now to know yourself as these things always. ~Neale Donald Walsch

And joy is everywhere;
It is in the Earth’s green covering of grass;
In the blue serenity of the Sky;
In the reckless exuberance of Spring;
In the severe abstinence of grey Winter;
In the Living flesh that animates our bodily frame;
In the perfect poise of the Human figure, noble and upright;
In Living;
In the exercise of all our powers;
In the acquisition of Knowledge;
In fighting evils…
Joy is there
Everywhere.   ~Rabindranath Tagore

When the Lord restored the fortunes of Zion,we were like those who dream.  Then our mouth was filled with laughter, and our tongue with shouts of joy;
then it was said among the nations, “The Lord has done great things for them.” The Lord has done great things for us and we rejoiced.  ~Psalms 126: 1-3
