Usually, I do not double-post on any given day. However, when I posted this morning, I had completely forgotten that today is the first Saturday of the month. Elizabeth Esther runs a meme in which on the first Saturday of the month bloggers select their favorite post of the month and share it with other bloggers. The links are posted at Esther's site: here, and I usually enjoy joining her in this meme. Therefore, I present you with the second post of the day.
Easily my favorite post for January was Joy in Despair. If you missed it the first time around, I hope you will enjoy it now.
