I am the mother of three, the wife of just one and a willing passenger on the wild, rollercoaster known as motherhood. Sometimes it is thrilling and other times my stomach could hurl, but I wouldn't miss one second of the crazy, joyful ride.
These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full. This is my commandment, that you love one another, as I have loved you. –Jesus Christ (John 15:11-12)
It is pleasing to God whenever thou rejoicest or laughest from the bottom of thy heart. -Martin Luther
People are naturally happy on some occasions, but the Christian's joy is not dependent on circumstances. It comes from what Christ has done, and it is constant. -NIV commentary
If we try hard to bring happiness to others, we cannot stop it from coming to us also. To get joy, we must give it, and to keep joy, we must scatter it. -John Templeton
