joy

Joy seems to be the key to everything.  Joy in the Faith, joy in parenting which leads to the Faith, joy in the family which attracts others to the Faith – making the family truly missionary.  Joy, not happiness.  Joy with peace which faces every day, every situation, every trial in faith, saying, “Jesus, I trust in You.”

Joy is a gift and not something I fabricate within myself.  So joy must come from communion, a communion with Love.
