Joy Bumps!

Fruitful Living is the goal of the Christian life. Observing the fruit of the Spirit growing in Ewer life is very satisfying for the believer. Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness, & self control are the outward evidence of God taking root in a person's heart. Today, we will examine the fruit of Joy as seen through the world of animals & nature. Billy Sunday once wrote, " If you have no joy, there's a leak in your Christianity somewhere."
When Ewe Smile, the whole world Smiles with Ewe!

Eating Bamboo makes me JOYFUL!

 St. Augustine once wrote, "There is a joy which is not given to the ungodly, but to those who love Thee for Thine own sake, whose joy Thou Thyself art. And this is the happy life, to rejoice to Thee, of Thee, for Thee; this it is, and there is no other."
Joy on the inside usually shows up on Ewer face!
Author Alexander Mac Claren wrote, "To pursue joy is to lose it. The only way to get it is to follow steadily the path of duty, without thinking of joy, and then, like sheep, it comes most surely unsought, and we "being in the way," the angel of God, bright-haired joy, is sure to meet us."

JOY  shows up on many FACES!
  St. Augustine wrote, " When large numbers of people share their joy in common, the happiness of each is greater because each adds fuel to the other's flame."

Being Joyful makes people suspicious!

Being Joyful keeps Ewe on Ewer toes!
A Joyful Life will have Ewe in "Stitches"!
Christian author Chuck Swindoll wrote,"I cannot even imagine where I would be today were it not for that handful of friends who have given me a heart full of joy. Let's face it, friends make life a lot more fun."

Joyfully singing with friends is much better than singing solo!

Joy is having a friend to play with!
Sheep express real joy when they have each other, & they have a Shepherd meeting their basic needs. Life doesn't get any better than that!

JOY makes Ewe "lighter" on Ewer feet!
Being Joyful helps Ewe to just "Have a "BALL" in life!
Travel on the path of life today with a little "lighter heart", knowing that the Good Shepherd produces Joy in the life of His flock.

 "For you shall go out with joy, & be led out with peace; The mountains & the hills Shall break forth into singing before you, And all the trees of the field will clap their hands." Isaiah 55:12
