May this day be filled with joy, O God. Let us look for ways to celebrate each moment and treat those we meet today as a gift. Allow us to let go of the things that are challenging us right now and let us set aside our worries if only for a little while. Give us the awareness of times when we can help others find that joy we also desire, knowing that when we bring others your love it fills us as well. May the joy we find be infectious and give us a glimpse of what that complete joy you intend for us. All this we ask in the name of you O God. Amen.
