In this crazy world rejoicing for what you have is a good thing. Even on better days, rejoicing is an ideal way to approach life. There are a lot of adjectives that define this word and all of them are ways to express another good word gratitude. When you have enough in life rejoice and be grateful. When you can rejoice in the life you have but be ready to share it with others who need a little of what you have.
The third candle of the Advent wreath represents Gaudete/Rejoice. May this be a time to rejoice in the season. Grace and peace to all.
