Joseph Campbell said "We cannot cure the world of sorrows, but we can choose to live in joy."
For me, to desire Joy is easy, but I suspect that may not be true for everyone. I remember wondering how some people could seem so serious and how hard it was to get them to even smile, much less laugh. But, if we desire joy, we can find it everywhere. A sad saint is a sorry saint so let us cultivate joy, desire it, pray for it, and practice it. Begin with a smile for Jesus when you wake up.
Rejoice in the Lord always [delight, gladden yourselves in Him]; again I say, Rejoice! Philippians 4:4
Be glad in the Lord and rejoice, shout for joy, all you upright in heart! Psalm 32: 11
