My family gathered to pray together and after we prayed, we sang a song from my childhood – “If you want joy you must sing for it”. Hearing my 80 year old mom sing this song and joining her took me back to a precious, sweet time as a youngster. I was six years old, and this 80 something year old man took me by the hand and danced with me, singing this song. He had the happiest smile, the biggest enthusiastic love in his heart for Jesus that I never forgot it. I’m thankful for sweet memories of strong Christians showing me God’s joy and love.
