1. we are to have joy in our lives.
2.because "...men are, that they might have joy." 2nephi 2:25
3.sometimes you have to mentally stop and enjoy the feeling of joy
in that very moment when you recognize that particular something that is causing your joy.
(i think this was a result of an answer to prayer of wanting to have feel joy in my life)
4. it may behoove me (and you) to keep a 'joy journal'; recording the moments we had during the day when pure joy was felt in our being.
