These are a few quotes from a wonderful source that also gives many online, short courses in Spirituality and Practice. I just clicked on Quotations after having clicked on Joy and here are the first few given. This Christmastide is a time of joy, I thought it would be good for us to reflect on some of these quotes.
A life of joy is not in seeking happiness. But in experiencing and simply being the circumstances of our life as they are.
— Charlotte Joko Beck quoted in Open Mind by Diane Mariechild
To find joy in another's joy
that is the secret of happiness.
— George Bernanos quoted in Joy by Beverly Elaine Eanes
These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full.
— John 15:14 in The Bible
The beating heart of the universe is holy joy.
— Martin Buber quoted in Simplicity: The Art of Living by Richard Rohr
We have God's joy in our blood.
— Frederick Buechner in The Longing for Home
The fullness of joy is to behold God in everything.
— Julian of Norwich quoted in Meditations with Julian of Norwich by Brendan Doyle
I guess the last quote from Julian says all I need today. Enjoy your day because God is in everything!!
