  • Picture Joy

    We sing songs about joy, especially at Christmas time.

    There are several scriptures about joy

    Some have said that one acronym of joy is putting

    Jesus first Others second and                                               Yourself last.

    Synonyms of joy: Happiness, delight, pleasure, enjoyment, bliss, elation, thrill, gladness

    Webster's defines joy as “the emotion evoked by well-being, success, or good fortune or by the prospect of possessing what one desires.” ... Similarly, John Piper writes, “Christian joy is a good feeling in the soul, produced by the Holy Spirit, as he causes us to see the beauty of Christ in the word and in the world.”

    Where do you see beauty? What brings you joy? Your First Baptist Church Family wants to know; and, since we know that a picture is worth a 1,000 words, we invite and encourage you to share with us what brings a smile to your face and an overwhelming fullness to your heart.

    Please submit photos, pictures, art work, poems, stories, song, poem, letter, quote, phrase, prayer, scripture, symbol, landmark – anything that brings you joy .

    Please note that we must be able to make a copy of your submission in order to format it for our of “Picture Joy” Gallery.

    Deadline for submissions will be May 22, 2019.

    Thanks in advance for sharing your joy with us!
