More thoughts on Joy!

So, I was reading in Psalms yesterday and came to Psalm 30:5  “For his anger lasts only a moment, but his favor lasts a lifetime; weeping may remain for a night, but rejoicing comes in the morning.”

When I was growing up, my dad loved this verse, and he used to quote it very loudly, very early in the morning – “Weeping may endure for the night, but JOY comes in the morning!!”  (I’m pretty sure he learned in the King James Version).  I used to roll over in bed at 6 or 7am on Saturday morning after hearing him singing or saying this very loudly and wonder something along the lines of “can’t Joy sit outside my bedroom door till about 10am when I’m ready to get out of bed!”
