Finding joy in the midst of sorrow

This story from Friday morning’s newspaper is an example of what Ann Voskamp calls “hard eucharisteo”. Finding joy despite a pregnancy doctors said should be ended. Finding joy when doctors say the baby will live only a year. Finding joy through medical emergencies and procedures. This couple’s faith shows us all that life’s sorrows can be blessings in disguise. Read this article and count the joy this family believes is found in their red-haired, blue-eyed baby Pearl.
