Joy

When I was a youngster, some of the most joyous times were during the holiday season. My Dad shared stories from his childhood and told us kids Bible stories such as the story of David and Goliath as well as the birth of Jesus. He would end his stories telling us that we could have happy and abundant lives if we put our trust in the Lord. My siblings and I would also help our Momma prepare food to deliver to people in and around Waldo that needed help making their holiday magic happen. Seeing the joyous look on people’s faces as we delivered Mother’s wonderful homemade creations gave us all great joy.

And, I wanted us to have an experience of doing something without any expectation of receiving anything in return. We three sat down a

Growing up in the A-1 Truck Stop in Waldo, FL I’d sit and watch our patrons who were vastly different than my family and our neighbors. Our restaurant seating consisted of four 36” square tables that had four chairs each and a counter where there were six stools. I’d see tourists sitting at the tables and wonder what their life was like in whatever faraway town they lived in. But it was the truckers who mesmerized me.
