Can anybody tell me what joy is?

Take answers.

And what is a joyful heart?

Take answers.

What makes you joyful?

Take answers.

How do you feel, when you wake up and see the world under a blanket of snow, and your mother tells you there’s no school, so after breakfast, you can go outside and build a snowman?

Let the children respond, then say:

Being happy, so happy we feel our hearts will burst, is what we call having a joyful heart. And happy as it makes us to build a snow man, when we can feel God’s love inside us and know we can trust in him and his wisdom to lead us, we have a joyful heart.
