Joy Is

Joy is sunlight dancing across my soul
Giving breath to my spirit

Joy is the surround sound of completeness
Settling the anxiousness of my heart

Joy is the duplication of laughter
Pushing the deep sorrow from my bones

Joy is the fuel of fellowship
Igniting the freedom of who I am

I love the 'feel' of your painting joy as surround sound. Awesome! I was reminded of those '5' gum commercials where it shows different sensory experiences. Joy has it all beaten! Thanks for joining, Jay. You lifted my spirits. :)

Love it!  So thoughtful and so very accurate.  Among other things have to admit that laughing is a huge healer for me.  Thanks.
