CAC Adoption Advocate and Birth Mother, Lori, will be sharing a beautiful poem she wrote entitled, “Joy.”
by Lori Dortch
Joy is an orientation of the heart
A constant state of contentment and hope
Unlike happiness, it fails to fade away into oblivion.
Once it’s permeated your every fiber, it endures through faith.
Among the seas of sorrow and sin, joy soars.
It brightens the glow of faces, young and old.
Eyes—filled with the light of our savior.
Lips—proclaiming His great love for us.
Joy brings poverty to its knees in submission
It conquers its opposition with acts of kindness.
It forms bridges across great divides to usher in peace
