Our dramatic monologue this Sunday features Elizabeth, whose weeping was turned to joy. Read about it in Luke 1:5-58. And we will light the second advent candle of JOY. This should be the easy one, because joy is all around us—in the lights, the music, the gathering together. But how often do we let our preparations—or our memories—push joy to the side? Joy is like an underground spring that wells up within us, but joy is also a choice, an attitude. Like a muscle, it needs to be exercised. So today let us open ourselves to joy, trusting that God has already planted it in us.
