Judges 11:1-12:15;  John 1:1-28;  Psalm 101:1-8;  Proverbs 14:13-14

“Even in laughter the heart may ache,

and joy may end in grief.”

Proverbs 14:13

* * * * *

Happy sad

describes my mood

as neighbor

moves away.

Happy that I’ve known


Sad that he’s going

thankful to see him

another day.

* * * * *

Happy sad

Son’s graduating

leaving town I love

full of friends

and memories.

* * * * *

Happy sad

Acceptance into Grad school

Schedule will certainly change

Not as many carefree days

New knowledge, new friends


* * * * *

Happy sad

the Lord knows my heart

He’s my source of joy

whether happy

or sad.

Lord God, our feelings, our moods go up, go down all given to us by you to experience and point us always to you.   Thank you for the richness of our emotions.  And thank you that underneath them all your peace and joy run deep by faith in your Son, Jesus Christ my Lord.  Happy sad, I’m your’s today.  In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
