Jump 4 Joy

I am trying to recall the different occasions when JOY was the word given to me:

The first time was back in June, when Benjamin said that God gave him the word Joy for me.
The next I remember was 14 Oct when Paul said he saw the word "JOY" over me.
That same day, an online thingie: "God wants you to know ..."
... got a message that on this day, God wants him to know that to burn out the pain, just find a place filled with joy.
God created joy as a balm for pain. What are some places, who are some people filled with joy that you can rely on to ease your pain?
Just last Sunday 1 Nov again the word "JOY" was given. This time coupled with another word that brought back memory of a long ago talk I had with God. It was the word "DELIGHT"

It reminded me of the verse Psalm 37:4 and a prayer I prayed back in the beginning of 1990. I asked the Lord to teach me how to delight in Him. I also gave up to Him the urge to have a partner (read girlfriend) and prepared myself to be single the rest of my life . That year I was granted a desire of my heart ... I met my life-partner.
