Joy on the Rise

Title: Joy on the Rise

Description: Happiness is . . . a tummyful of hotpot. An inside joke with friends. An unexpected bonus. The rush of a deadline met. It isn’t wrong to strive for happiness—but happiness is anchored on “outside” things we can’t control.

On the other hand, joy is something that emanates from deep inside. Even in a world where happiness might be hard to find, we can always be assured that God’s gift of joy can’t be so easily taken or shaken. As we celebrate International Day of Happiness, let’s remember that His is the true joy that lives deep down in our hearts.

“Though the fig tree should not blossom,
nor fruit be on the vines,
the produce of the olive fail
and the fields yield no food,
the flock be cut off from the fold
and there be no herd in the stalls,
yet I will rejoice in the Lord;
I will take joy in the God of my salvation.”

– Habakkuk 3:17-18



a boy is blowing balloons

he set free his balloon

he is flying with his balloon

bird come and attack his balloons

"pop pop pop" balloons are bursting

He is falling down

but there is light in his heart

The light is glowing bigger and bigger

He finally flying up with the light.
