Wednesday Greetings,

There's a subtle but important difference between joy and happy.Happy is a feeling of glee, an elated feeling, usually related to something that is good, to state of being that is good.That's a great feeling to have during this Christmas season.  A lot of songs seem to be about being happy at Christmas.But Christmas is about Joy.... joy doesn't necessarily imply happy.   For me, joy is about knowing that in the midst of life, no matter how life is, that God has a plan, that God has come to us in the midst of life to remind us that God's got this, that God's plan will come together, and that we can trust in God.For me... joy comes knowing God's in charge of my life.   Happy is something I get to create.  Joy comes from God.So, this year, if you can't find happy.... let your faith guide you to joy. 
Peace in our journeys,
Pastor Steve Melde
