I wonder when you have felt most joyful; not just happy but joyful?
Joy is a deep sense of contentment and wellbeing despite circumstances. It is the very height of extreme happiness that we sometimes experience at the birth of a child or on a wedding day. Joy is the heartfelt expression of emotion that arises, floods and fills the heart in response to the best news, good news, a realisation that fills us with wonder and delight. Joy. Deep Joy. This is at the heart of the Christian faith.
