(an acrostic for my friend)
Joy, the expression of God-given peace, love, kindness, and mercy, is evident in this my friend, Joy Lynn Morehead.
Opulent in her expression of the love that God has implanted in her life as she goes about the path that she has been given to walk.
Yielding to the will of God, as she understands it, she is always willing to lend a helping hand and to encourage those who cross her path!
Leaning into and on her faith in God, she radiates the love that is implanted in her by that faith.
Yearning to please her God and friends, she uses the gifts given to her for the betterment of her friends, church, family, community, and herself!
Never too busy to extend a helping hand to those in need. She is always seeking ways to be of help.
Nothing between her God and her conscience, she is readily aware of who she is and who she is becoming.
Moving in the grace that has been and is being bestowed on her, she exhibits that same grace to others.
Open to new expressions and new ways to share her love for God and others, she seeks to be used in new ways and new expressions of her faith.
Rejoicing in life itself, she brings others joy, just by her presence as she shares the joy given to her by God.
Ethereal in the way she moves in and about her ways as she encourages, helps, and guides those who seek her presence.
Having experience in a number of walks of life, Joy uses that life experience to counsel and to guide those who would seek her and need what she has to offer.
Effacing, self effacing, sometimes to a fault, she goes about her days in peace and bringing her namesake, joy, to others.
Always willing to lend a helping hand to those who need it and sometimes even to those who don’t know they need it.
Determined to say this, all this, about Joy Lynn Morehead, I have neglected to say how much I appreciate her and that I count her as my friend! Thanks, Joy!
