Mom's JoyWritten by Demetria Zinga
Continued from page 1
Oh, and although joy is something each individual has to receive on her own, I believe my Motherís joy is contagious, because I feel quite joyful around her!
ďThe joy of Lord is your strengthĒ psalmist David says. And itís true. Mom is a strong and determined virtuous woman who would go extra mile just to have assurance that our Savior is pleased with her. Because Mom never gives up on God, she is always joyful. And joy of Lord will cause one to smile even if she feels unhappy. So, although Iíve done my share of crying, when I go to visit Mom and tell her all about my woes of hour, I canít help but to leave with a bright smile on my face. She leaves with me a kindled fire within my soul and continually reveals to me with her quiet smile and patient words how I can attain same joy. As a treasure of jewels found in desert sand, is joy of Lord I have found in my mother. My prayer is that I will reflect her image of extreme joy in Christ, now and in years to come.
