The Gift of Joy

I can't begin to describe the joy I feel when I see you filled with joy and happiness. It makes Me happy to see you happy! It brings Me such great pleasure when you take the time to look around and realize all the many blessings I have showered on you. I know it's an old saying that seems trite at times, but "count your blessings" is what I would like you to do for Me this Christmas.—Jesus

Everybody knows that money can't buy happiness, yet people are all too ready to overlook that fact during holidays. It's so easy to get caught up in the frenzied rush to buy the latest fashions and gadgets for your loved ones and toys for your children, all the while crowding out those precious moments you could spend with your family and friends, sharing with them the greatest gift in the world, love.—Jesus
