I've known my pastor for eleven years and he has had a few homilies I have remembered. One in particular stands out, JOY. He has used it on the third Sunday of Advent but I suggested he use it for Christmas since it's been a while. It's quite simple and I'll summarize it. Basically, if you use the word JOY as an acronym for how to live your life, you will have everything in the proper order. J=Jesus, He should be first in your life; O=Others, others are next, and then Y=You, you come after Jesus and others. If you put you first, it would spell YOJ which is not a word at all. So, there you have it, JOY!
