Joy

"Joy is not a casual or shallow feeling, ever.
If we equate fun & pleasure with happiness, we may think pain must always be equated with unhappiness. But that is not true.
Joy is not a stranger to pain.
We may not feel deeply enough to know joy unless our hearts have been hollowed out by sorrow. A heart may not be big enough to know real joy until it has been stretched and pulled by trials and hard things."
-Barbara Workman
