Have you ever suffered in joy?
I wonder if this makes sense. I mean joy is well…joy. It’s like a sunny day at the beach and they’re giving away free ice cream that is calorie free but tastes like normal ice cream. And suffering well….
Yet, I contend that you can suffer in joy. When your life doesn’t or isn’t going the way you want. Your dreams are just dreams. You move sideways never seeming to move forward or backward. Yet, you rejoice in the joy of others. You dance when they dance. You shout hooray when they shout hooray. But you sit on your couch with heart full of joy as your eyes over flow giant drops of tears. Your own pain.
