Reflections on Joy

by Jan Shoop
Today’s reflection is on the word Joy.
Joy can best be described through pictures and quotes.
Here are some of my favorite photos, videos and quotes:

Joy at StarShine with Jan Shoop, Trish McCarty, Mickey and Minney.

Disney and volunteers bring joy to the StarShine students.

Here are three great quotes that reflect joy:
“It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge.”
Albert Einstein

“We are shaped by our thought; we become what we think. When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves.”

“Service which is rendered without joy helps neither the servant nor the served. But all other pleasures and possessions pale into nothingness before service which is rendered in a spirit of joy.”
