Joy and Pain

Someone asked me what two words define my life. I settled on beauty and joy.

Beauty, because everything is beautiful. There is beauty in the slums, there is beauty in colorless places, there is some speck of beauty everywhere. I was people to see that beauty, and so see the God who made it.

Joy, because life is joy. Love is joy. God is joy. Many people don’t realize this. I want them to. I want people to laugh, and to laugh hard, until the tears roll down their cheeks from sheer pure enjoyment. I want to see joy. Because joy is health. And wealth. And happiness.

What are your two words? Think about them. Define them. Live them.

It could make all the difference.
