    I found “JOY” for Advent in reading about joy in this blog. Which made me experience joy in recalling the Father’s plan for us through the gift us His Son. Which made me feel the joy of Advent….and so on. Wild! Kind of like seeing multiple reflections of yourself in the barber shop. But then isn’t that God’s plan for us? Wow! I just experienced even more joy…and more reflection…and more joy…and more reflection. Wild!
