Letter to Joy

Dear Joy,
I have been looking for you for a while now. I thought maybe you had grown unhappy with me and ran off with Patience. But, as I keep investigating, it has become clear that a gang of dark, oppressing forces have broken in and stolen you away. I know this to be true because Love tipped me off. During this difficult time He revealed that I still:
Love my life.
Love my location.
Love my job.
Love my colleagues.
Love my friends.
Love my husband.
Love my family.
So it seems I still have Love, but Joy is lost.

Joy, I know that your oppressors are beating you beyond recognition. I beg you to hold on. Please know, I will not stop searching for you. One day you will be rescued and returned home again!

A little message to my Joy captures:
I will find you.
I will hunt you down.
I am armed with Determination, Empowerment, and a Wrath for Injustice.

If you don’t find that threatening, it may bequeath you to know I will NOT be alone!
I’m bringing an army of diligent Prayer Warriors who continually intercede on my behalf.
They will have NO mercy on you.   
So, it is in your best interest to release my Joy before our troops cross your threshold.  

Joy – on your way home, please keep an eye out for Patience.
She seems to be missing too.

Signed,

Surviving

About Jenny Bagwill

You know those milestone moments in your life where the course you were going completely jolts you into reevaluating all you think or believe? Mine came in 2010 along with a precious baby girl. My healthy pregnancy, produced a baby with many internal defects unveiling themselves after birth like a stack of falling dominos. We lost track of her surgery count once we hit double digits. By the grace of God, our little fighter has survived an open heart surgery as well as a liver transplant along with a myriad of tests, blood work, and medical visits. She’s doing quite well, and we share her journey here: http://www.lilsophie.wordpress.com I hope you take the time to read about our girlie and possibly leave a word of encouragement. My milestone moment (that has continued over the last 2 years), presented many idle hospital hours where I used my time to make hair clips for our little girl who battled to live. It also crossed my path with numerous families in many heartbreaking situations. This is when I decided to use my creativity to do what I can to help others. I try to use my God-given talents to encourage and inspire others which you’ll see me blog about here. I also make a lot of custom pieces to raise awareness of illnesses, syndromes, and diseases that may hit close to home with you. As you’ll see my pieces often contain encouraging words – things hard to say to others in the midst of their dark place. You can view, shop, or place a custom order at here at my JeWeL 4U Etsy Shop - http://www.etsy.com/shop/jewel4u And because our Lil’Sophie has had a liver transplant I always encourage others to consider registering to give the gift of life: http://www.organdonor.gov View all posts by Jenny Bagwill
