Dom DeLuise was a comedian and actor that many of us enjoyed on TV and in the movies.
He passed away in 2009. For many years Dom DeLuise made many people laugh, but he himself suffered from extreme depression. When his little son asked him what he wanted for Christmas, Dom replied, “Joy, I want joy for Christmas and you can’t give it to me!”
On Christmas morning his 50-pound child handed Dom a big sheet of cardboard with the word “JOY” scrawled on it. “You see, Dad, I can give you Joy,” he said. Dom DeLuise broke down laughing and crying.
Love and laughter got together and in time his severe depression left him. Few of us suffer from severe depression, thank goodness. But most of us would chime in with Dom DeLuise and ask for Joy at Christmas.
What special Joy are YOU looking for this Christmas? What special Joy are YOU giving to someone this Christmas who really needs Joy?
JOY IS THE INFALLIBLE SIGN OF THE PRESENCE OF GOD!
