Here is a fun and easy craft to teach your children about “joy” and what it means. Joy is defined as “a feeling of great pleasure and happiness.” (Google) I started out by talking to my children about joy and what it means. And I read the Scripture below to them:
Psalm 103: 1-5 (NLT)
1 Let all that I am praise the Lord;
with my whole heart, I will praise his holy name.
2 Let all that I am praise the Lord;
may I never forget the good things he does for me.
3 He forgives all my sins
and heals all my diseases.
4 He redeems me from death
and crowns me with love and tender mercies.
5 He fills my life with good things.
My youth is renewed like the eagle’s!
Next, we spoke about examples of things that bring us joy and happiness. Things that make us smile and feel good. They had a long list (which is great). I realized that I have a long list, too. It is just so great focusing on the good and not the bad in life!
