I count it all joy

James 1:2

Real life friend, colleague, and Rivers of Life Clergy Band member Mark Doane shared this quote recently —

Joy does not

simply happen to us.

We have to choose joy

and keep choosing it

every day.

— Henri Nouwen wrote that.

You and I have the chance to do that today.

We can choose joy. Yes, we can.

And we can keep choosing it. Yes, we really can.

The writer of our New Testament book of James would agree, saying, I count it all joy.

Let’s try that today!
