Joy - you're not from around here, are you?

 On my journey of tailing Joy, I followed her to and fro, picking up what clues I could about her identity.  Though trying my best to act aloof and blend in to my surroundings, I had a feeling Joy knew I was on her tail, and more than that, welcomed my pursuit.

I imagine it was intentional, then, her dropping her date book. I thought it common courtesy, of course, to pick it up with intentions of returning it at some point.  I confess, I couldn’t help but look inside – after all I am a detective and I owe it to my craft, at least this week.

Her schedule was full of appointments – at reunions, and births, and betimes with Dad, wedding days, Bible studies, walks around the block…  Joy seemed to get around.  I tried my best to stay on her trail through the day’s adventures, but rarely caught a good sight of her.  Then I spotted it – at the bottom of today’s schedule- “head home”.  This should be good, I thought.  I’ll get to see where she lives.

And so I journeyed on, trying my best to keep her in focus and in my sight. As we got closer to her home, the clearer her appearance became – until I could see her clear as day, beautiful as could be imagined, standing at the foot of Father’s throne. 

So this is where she lives

 “You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.” Psa 16:11

Taking out my journal, I noted, “If I need to get a hold of Joy, try the throne room.”

Father, today I ask you would draw us into your presence, that we might find JOY in all her fullness.
