A Net of Love


What is joy?

Joy is a noun.

A noun that describes the feeling of great pleasure and happiness.

As quoted by Mother Teresa,

Joy is prayer

Joy is strength

Joy is love

Joy is a net of love by which you can catch souls

A lovely soul, Yoshiko is so kind to share with us her favourite Christmas song during this year and thus making this post possible.

Joy to the World is a popular American Christmas song which emphasizes the reverent but ecstatic joy that Christ’s birth brought to humanity.The text was originally titled “The Messiah’s Coming and Kingdom” when it first appeared in a hymnal of 1719 by Isaac Watts but only the second half of Watt’s lyrics are still used today.

The music for this popular carol is thought to have been adapted by Lowell Mason, an American church musician, from some of the phrases used in parts of George Frederick Handel’s beloved oratorio.

As of the late 20th century, “Joy to the World” was the most-published Christmas hymn in North America.

In the 1970s, there is a different song of the same title, popularized by the pop group Three Dog Night. The song is also popularly known by its opening words, “Jeremiah was a bullfrog”. 

The song, which has been described by members of Three Dog Night as a “kid’s song” and a “silly song”, topped the main singles charts in North America.

This resulted in occasional recordings in which the pop song’s lyrics and melody were combined with that of the carol.

Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile,

but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy.

~ Thích Nhất Hạnh

Let us not go around looking for happiness or joy since it is not something to be found but a source within us awaiting to be spread around.

Furthermore, just like what Mother Teresa said, joy is a net of love which can catch souls, well this may sound a little funny but I do sincerely hope all lovely souls out there who are now reading this post to be caught by it…hehehe…

Before ending this post, here’s the song by the Three Dog Night to share with all you lovely souls out there:

Joy to the world.

Till then,

Cheers & TTFN ~ 😀

I’ve Learned That…


As I was reading a post and made a comment, I started the line with “No Matter What” and the song by BoyZone immediately came into my head.

So, as you lovely souls are aware that I would always make a sudden post whenever a song comes into my head and together with Maya Angelou‘s very enlightening words, I would love to share this beautiful song with you all:

I’VE LEARNED THAT…

No matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow.

I’VE LEARNED THAT…

You can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things:

a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights.

I’VE LEARNED THAT…

Regardless of your relationship with your parents, you’ll miss them when they’re gone from your life.

I’VE LEARNED THAT…

Making a “living” is not the same thing as making a “life.”

I’VE LEARNED THAT…

Life sometimes gives you a second chance.

I’VE LEARNED THAT…

You shouldn’t go through life with a catcher’s mitt on both hands;

you need to be able to throw something back.

I’VE LEARNED THAT…

Whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision.

I’VE LEARNED THAT…

Even when I have pains, I don’t have to be one.

I’VE LEARNED THAT…

Every day you should reach out and touch someone.

I’VE LEARNED THAT…

People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back.

I’VE LEARNED THAT…

I still have a lot to learn.

I’VE LEARNED THAT…

People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did,

but people will never forget how you made them feel.

~ Maya Angelou

No Matter What Happens

Do have a Fabulous Friday

And

A Wonderful Weekend ahead

Till Then,

Cheers & TTFN ~ 😀
