Joy Has Come to Me!
For you make me glad by your deeds, O Lord; I sing for joy at the works of your hands (Psalm 92:4).
A tooth? Imagine that!
When a teetering-on-the-brink dental filling finally gave loose after countless years, I experienced an unanticipated reaction: the escape of nagging, low-grade pain throughout my body, a pain that I had ascribed over the years to a host of things — but not that pesky tooth!
An astounding outcome. “Joy has come to me!”
The assembly of this issue also brought with it a pleasantly unexpected outcome: nearly every story in this issue was written by or about a pastor’s wife — and two writers happen to have been “my” pastors’ wives. Over the years, joy has come to all of these women — not by means of a trip to the dentist — but because of their personal relationship with their Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
May their stories bring you joy … and may His joy surprise you in unexpected ways.
