Joy Cometh in the Morning

About the book

I would like to reference letters from Rev. India Marable of Brooklyn who stated: "I could not put down Joy Cometh In The Morning after I started reading it." Also, Rev. Lenox Luncheon of Arverne, new York, stated: "I found Joy Cometh In The Morning to be a source of inspiration and an encouragement to me, as it pertains to my own endeavors as an author." 


The Bible reminds us that the symbols of the cross and resurrection testify to the faith and hope that suffering can issue new life. (pp 26)

Even in the dark edges of human existence when God's very presence seems profoundly hidden from us and we rail at Him for not apparing to be on top of things, we could still discover His immanent, tender presence, operative in our midst. (pp 27)

Even though we might at times be rendered powerless to change the way our world spins, it is entirely within our power to change the direction we are facing - regardless of the way this unwilling world may turn. The decision to look to the Source from which our help comes will change the world for us, because it changes our relationship with the world. (pp 48)

No matter how dark days might appear, the redemptive impulse of God remains present and operative in human life. (pp 114)
