“Happiness is an untested delight. Joy is delight tested” – Jack Hyles
It is easy to think Joy and Happiness are the same thing, but are they? Perhaps happiness is a feeling that we experience depending on our circumstances, but Joy can be something we have no matter our circumstances. If we have Joy in something that we know is coming, a hope for a better future, then perhaps we can hold on to that Joy, no matter how happy we are.
