The "J" in the name Jesus stands for "Joy" for me. Jesus awaits me in heaven, and that's the same as "Joy awaits me." There are sufferings to bear or go through in this life. I had my share of sicknesses, injuries, and accidents; but when everything is well again, you forget the past. In heaven, God will wipe away all our tears, so all trials and tribulations of this life will be forgotten completely. Start rejoicing now. Get emotional ~ that's OK with God.
