joy overflowing

Lord, you know us. You know we often confuse the joy we find in a feast with family and friends, a cheerfully trimmed tree, or even in the carols sung at church with the joy the angels sing about. Help us to focus on the things that bring YOU joy–justice for the oppressed, courage for the fearful, welcome for the excluded, comfort for the grieving, companionship for the lonely.
