words for wednesday

happiness is nice, but its temporary.
joy is something different altogether.
is a constant.
it's not dependent on circumstances
or people
but rather on a heart issue.
happiness is external;
joy is internal.
joy can be tucked deep in the heart,
even in difficult circumstances.
-Karol Ladd

I never really thought about the difference between happiness and joy -- this explains the difference really well. You're so insightful! Sincerely, thank you.
