I’ve met those in disastrous circumstances filled with joy.
I’ve met discouraged and despondent sounds suffering through desperate times.
I’ve met those with plenty, beyond what they can track, and hearts that are hollow.
I’ve met those with excess and joy and rich success.
Joy is not found in a circumstance, occupation, title, achievement.
Joy is divorced from circumstance.
Joy is a gift that is sought by the heart and given in grace.
