In that same hour he rejoiced in the Holy Spirit and said, “I thank you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that you have hidden these things from the wise and understanding and revealed them to little children. Luke 10:21
At His birth shepherds rejoiced – And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God
At His touch the leper rejoiced – and he fell on his face at Jesus’ feet, giving him thanks.
At His sight a sinner rejoiced – So he hurried and came down and received him joyfully.
In His arms children rejoiced -And he took them in his arms and blessed them,
At his son’s return a father rejoiced- Celebrate and be glad… your brother was dead, and is alive
When He called her name Mary rejoiced – “Mary!” Jesus said. She turned to him and cried out,
For bread and fish on the fire the disciples rejoiced – Then Jesus served them the bread and the fish.
At His return to Heaven His Father rejoiced – For the joy that was set before Him He endured
For Joy From birth with straw and angels Through every up and down To death with thieves and strangers In joy He bore the crown And now He's gone to Father’s house For us to make a place So why not serve with joy right here Till when we see His face For Joy by Peter Caligiuri 2020 All rights reserved

My first introduction to the Weavers. Love! Thank you for this encouraging post!
They are new to me as well. I follow a Mennonite couple whose channel is called Sounds Like Reign and I believe they are friends.
