Joy is a net of love by which you can catch souls.” – Mother Teresa

Joy is more than simple happiness.  It lies within the Heart!  It is not the emotion of being happy.  It is the deep down underlying experience of the Soul.  The knowledge that all is well within my soul, it is well, it is well.

One of my favorite songs of all time is “Come Alive” by the Foo Fighters.  It is a song that touches my emotions as well as soul.  It reminds me of the day my daughter Kristin “Joy” was born.  It was a Joyful experience when all four of my children were born, but Kristin was different.  Kristin was a difficult delivery to say the least.  Kristin was born in trauma, she arrived not breathing and purple.  They rushed her out of the delivery room to intensive care before I knew what was happening.

I did not know if she was alive or not!  I remember the Doctor coming back in to tell us that she was alive but had severe complications.  She could not move the right side of her body.  But, Kristin Joy was and still is a fighter.  She has through the years shown me how to persevere without complaint.  She never once saw her challenges as a handicap.  To this day you would never know that she has a physical challenge with her right side unless it was pointed out to you.

Kristin Joy is an example of true Joy, it is knowing that all is well, all is well!
