JOY...

Last week one day Maci was talking about JOY...
"Mom did you know there is a difference between JOY and HAPPINESS."
Well sure, Maci, I never much though of it, why.
"Happiness is something anyone can have, but JOY only comes from God."
Where did you learn that Mac?
"I learned it in Sunday School at Granma's church."
Really, that is awesome you understand that.
"Well, did you know that happiness last a little time, while JOY is forever?"
Maci you are such a special amazing little girl...
"If you don't talk to God then you won't ever know JOY."
I guess so...
"We are Joyful people mom."
Yes, we are dear.

I wish you all the JOY your lives can hold. And a special Thank You to Granma for not only taking or dragging me sometimes, to church. And even more important thank you for taking my little girl. I am touched by what she has learned. A life lesson that will never leave her, but lead her in the right direction, always...

True story told by my 4 year old little angel, Maci...

Maci is such a sweet loving child and obviously isn't afraid to show her love of God. I will share that story with Miss Tracy who was Maci teacher at Sunday school. I'm sure it will make her day too. Love, Mom
