Joy Comes in the Morning

Front Cover
Author House, Jul 3, 2006 - Fiction - 108 pages
I got the title from the scripture in the Bible that is in Psalms. It says, "Weeping may endure for a night, but Joy Comes In The Morning.

Janet Gerard, a blind girl has lost her husband Jerry Webb of 2 years. After finding out about Jerry's death one unexpected morning, Janet discovers that

she is pregnant with their first child. About 2 months after Jerry's death, Janet meets Mark Gerard, the pastor of the church she has been attending for

the past 2 years. Mark takes an interest in Janet Webb not just because she is blind, but because she is one of his flock at the church, and he sees a

special need. She and Mark are married after 2 years of dating but meanwhile he sees her through the birth of Margret. Janet encounters many things during

her short marriage to Mark which include flashbacks with Jerry, her best friend divorcing her husband because of an alternate lifestyle, and her mother

getting ill. Though Janet is faced with many trials and not too many blind friends in her circles, she finds that God is ever present, and that though the weeping has seemed like a long time, Joy does come for her.
