is for joy
Everyone wants to be happy.
Everyone searches high and low for it.
Everyone has their own idea of what happiness is.
There is nothing wrong with wanting to be happy.
You have every right to be light-hearted and cheerful.
It is a good thing to be high-spirited and vivacious.
However, you must be aware that happiness is momentary.
Being happy is not promised to be constant in life.
It comes and goes like the wind.
There is something that is greater than happiness.
It is a promise and neverending.
It is an enduring presence in your heart.
This extraordinary thing is simply, joy.
It is in your heart, planted deeply and firmly rooted.
It is steady and quiet but can burst out and trumpet loudly.
Knowing joy is different than being happy.
Unlike being happy, joy doesn’t depend or need outward things.
It’s a beautiful gift, batteries not included or required.
Be someone who knows the gift of joy.
