The Fourth Day of Christmas

The Gift of Joy

Joy is a gift; it’s a spiritual gift. Genenally speaking, if you want to receive a gift, don’t keep your hands in your pockets. Open your heart and open your hands to receive the gift of joy. Cooperate with God.

    That’s JOY

    Dear Brother Curtis, I, too, am a swimmer. Several years ago, when I was becoming familiar with the Jesus Prayer, I was also preparing one morning for an open water swim in a cold lake. Without planning it, the Jesus Prayer became, “Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a swimmer.” As you brought joy to us today, may it also br deeply present to you.
