My Christmas Joy
















Christmas joy. It's different for everyone.  Some of us feel joy at the sounds and sights of the holiday.  Others feel joy over good news or a good report that came during this time of year.  There are those that have joy due to a special gift waiting under their tree.  Quite a few get joy from helping those less fortunate.  Many feel joy because they personally know the One whose birth we celebrate!   What gives you joy at Christmas?   
I got these two ornaments last year at Cracker Barrel.   The rusty JOY is a favorite.  Call me a hick, but I like Cracker Barrel's  "store goods."

I feel joy at helping others less fortunate, I feel joy at celebrating friendship and family, I feel joy in being in the moment.
Lovely blog!

I love the cracker barrel store. We went there last year on the 26th and found THE BEST STUFF. Going back this year for (hopefully) more great finds.
Happy Holidays!

If you're a hick for shopping at Cracker Barrel than I guess I am in good company! We were there this afternoon and did our grandson's Christmas shopping done! I love their quirky, fun goodies!

We have alot of Joy around here, it's my oldest daughter's middle name so we have quite a few things that say it :-) My youngest daughter's middle name is Hope, so we see that alot too. I like your Joy ornaments. We don't have any Cracker Barrels around here, but I've been to a few while traveling, and they're wonderful.
Blessings,
Marcia
