There . . . can you read it now? :)
The left characters are 喜乐 xǐ lè . . . JOY. My love of the word "JOY" began back in third grade when a visiting nun at my school explained it to mean "Jesus Others You" and as "nothing (the O) should come between Jesus and you." That made such an impact on me, that I said that if I ever had a daughter that I'd name her "Joy." When Art and I got married, the "乐“ was on our wedding invitation. And yes, one of my daughter's names is indeed, "Joy."
The right characters are 胜利 shènglì (my name) and means "victory." My name was given to me by a beloved teacher in my early years in China. It's very unique for a woman and is typically a male name. Most women have flower names or names that mean "pretty" or "beautiful" or the like. Nothing like that for me, thank goodness! My teacher knew me well. An older Chinese woman once told me that it wasn't a very good name for me since it meant "victory in war, not a basketball game." Exactly! That's exactly what my names means!
"And that about wraps it up. God is strong, and he wants you strong. So take everything the Master has set out for you, well-made weapons of the best materials. And put them to use so you will be able to stand up to everything the Devil throws your way. This is no afternoon athletic contest that we'll walk away from and forget about in a couple of hours. This is for keeps, a life-or-death fight to the finish against the Devil and all his angels." Ephesians 6:12:10-12
The joy is in the victory that has already been won! Praise God!
