Mom's Joy

Written 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 ofrepparttar Lord is your strengthĒrepparttar 147939 psalmist David says. And itís true. Mom is a strong and determined virtuous woman who would gorepparttar 147940 extra mile just to haverepparttar 147941 assurance that our Savior is pleased with her. Because Mom never gives up on God, she is always joyful. Andrepparttar 147942 joy ofrepparttar 147943 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 ofrepparttar 147944 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 attainrepparttar 147945 same joy. As a treasure of jewels found inrepparttar 147946 desert sand, isrepparttar 147947 joy ofrepparttar 147948 Lord I have found in my mother. My prayer is that I will reflect her image of extreme joy in Christ, now and inrepparttar 147949 years to come.
