Glory {Art 2016} Scripture Challenge #2 - Happiness or Joy?

Hello, my friends!

Sunday Blessings to you all! :o)

I'm back to share my second Glory {Art 2016} Scripture Challenge page.
Yes, I said page. I opted to do a second page in my journal. 

I confess that I didn't read Patter's devotional until after my page was complete.
I was inspired by the title alone, and this page popped into my head. 
The title was simply "Happiness or Joy?".
To me those are two very different things!
Patter has shared some wonderful thoughts and Scriptures on this subject.
Please pop over to her blog and read everything HERE.

I really do like it when my project turns out just like what's in my head. 
I think this page displays JOY beautifully! 

Originally, I had intended to only share a portion of this verse.
After reading it I knew I had to share more.
The last line of Nehmiah 8:10 says:

"Do not grieve, for the JOY of the Lord is your strength."

So many of us have experienced loss in our lives.
It's easy to dwell on that loss, and let the grief take over.
That's not what God wants for us.
He is there for help us through the hard times.
He is in control of all of it!
That assurance is what true JOY is all about! :o)

As I was working on my page, this was the song in my head: might not have been just in my head.
It came out of my mouth too! ;o)

Remember, my friends
"Weeping may endure for the night, but JOY cometh in the morning!"
(Psalm 30:5)

EnJOY your day! :o)
