Living Joy Outright

Share Button

By: Dr. Troy Sammons, CVM Fieldstaff

The word joy seems to be the most common word to market the Christmas holiday.   From the fancy font in the boulevard banner to the Christmas card message, joy is decoratively spread on all aspects of our Christmas lives.

So now its January and it is time to pack away the joy, take down the ornaments and wall hanging and mugs with our seasonal joy and pack them neatly away into the Christmas boxes, taking care not to damage the signs of joy as we put them away.

How telling, that in January joy gets packed away and out comes the “try harder” resolutions of 2017 with new themes for the year.

Doesn’t this seem rather ironic but a telling ritual of where joy fits in our culture?

For the past six months now the understanding of joy has been rolling like a marble in my brain, as it circles to and fro it constantly bumps into my normal thoughts and helps me re-arrange them with a difference in priority.

Dr. David Wolfgang, a veterinarian from Pennsylvania, was given the opportunity to serve on his first short-term mission trip with CVM. David and his team spent a week working alongside Dr. Kelly Crowdis where he assisted in the training of Haitian para vets and provided a little bit of animal care. David has participated in several other more typical short term mission trips where he helped give veterinary care or fix up homes, and he stated that this Haiti trip was by far the most impactful. He wrote, “Hearing and watching Kelly, it is obvious that she has had a dramatic outreach to many in that country. No matter where we went folks seemed to know her and seem genuinely delighted to see and talk to her. She is building relationships and empowering people to improve their lives. She is extremely generous and the love and witness of Christ shines through. ”
