Joyful Moment #1

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.
