    If the last fruit of Holy obedience is the simplicity of the trusting child, it seems we have over complicated the meaning of Joy. What I have learned from all this is that suffering is inevitable and that joy is not happiness or the absence of suffering. Joy is suffering with hope. Suffering minus hope equals despair. Suffering plus hope equals joy. It is that simple. If we place our hope in God, then we can rejoice in Him and be joyful, because we know how the story ends.
