give witness to joy
You can always accomplish something by giving witness to joy. . . . Just as the scripture says that faith and hope without love are only sounding brass and tinkling cymbal, so also the joy proclaimed without mentioning the pain is only sounding brass and tinkling cymbal; unheeded, it whistles past the ear of the suffering one; it sounds on the ear but does not resound in the heart; it agitates the ear but is not treasured within. But this voice which quivers with pain and still proclaims joy — yes, this forces its way in through his ear and descends into his heart and is treasured there.
