Ripples v9.52: Joy To The World!
12/24/07: a free weekly splash from Paul & The Ripples Project
To find those places inside ourselves and in the world, where we belong…this is joy!
-Oriah Mountain Dreamer, submitted by Linda F.
Risk-taking, trust, and serendipity are key ingredients of joy.
Without risk, nothing new ever happens.
Without trust, fear creeps in.
Without serendipity, there are no surprises.
-Rita Golden Gelman, submitted by Crystal, C., Flint MI
I do it for the joy it brings
‘Cause I’m a joyful girl.
Because the world owes me nothing.
We owe each other the world.

Whatever you are celebrating,
However you are celebrating,
With whomever you are celebrating,
I hope this holiday ripple finds you filled with JOY!
