"If there's anything half so much fun as being alive, I'd like to know what it is." Mary Engelbreit
How do you live joy? We can let ourselves get down or we can go out and sit in the sun and sing for joy. Here is another quote from Mother Stuart: "Don't feel distressed at feeling "absolutely unspiritual." Probably it means only that you are tired, but nobody knows that better than Our Lord and nobody knows it as He does, what it means. So unite your weariness to His when you can do nothing else; that means much."
When we are grateful, I think we are living in joy. When we live in the present moment, as that little boy in the picture, we are living in joy. When we are able to help someone be happy, we are living in joy.
