I mentioned in a previous post about re-gaining lost joy. I’m wondering now if that’s really what I meant. You see, joy and happiness are two very different things. I know I’ve been unhappy with circumstances over the past few months, but I have not necessarily lost my joy.
Joy is deeper than happiness.
So, with that in mind, I can recognize one epiphany of joy today: Those who pass away, whether figuratively or literally, I will see again someday. And when we stand together in heaven, the offenses of this life–whether real or imagined–will fade in the light of eternity.
