18 yet I will rejoice in the Lord,
I will be joyful in God my Savior.
Be joyful in God your savior during your grief journey. Be joyful because God enables you to Climb Every Mountain the grief monster puts in your path. Yes, climbing is easier said than done but you will make it to the top. Maybe it returns quickly and maybe it does not come back until you reach the peak.
When it does there will be a spring in your step and a smile on your face.
Once you feel joy again it is your responsibility to scatter it, because there is not enough joy in this world. Scatter it by being generous with your hugs, smiles, waves, laughs, and love.
How will you choose to scatter joy?
Ralph Waldo Emerson
