Joy Week – Wednesday

“When you are joyous, look deep into your heart and you shall find it is only that which has given you sorrow that is giving you joy. When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight.” 
― Kahlil Gibran

The difference between happiness and joy is the absence or presence of sorrow. Happiness is a flitting butterfly on the wing, dancing from one sweet source of nectar to the next.

Joy is the rainbow that follows the storm. Joy is the seedling that finally breaks through the soil’s crust into the light of day.

Happiness is a human creation. Joy comes when we drink deeply from the wellspring of God’s sacrificial love for all God has made…knowing the sacrifice was for us and now lives within us.
