I agree it is a bit messed up..I doubt Jesus was full of joy on the cross either.. "Oh boy, I was torturned, whipped and beaten, and now I'm gonna die, ..such joy " . I believe in god myself, and I believe I will be in heaven.. But I do not look forward to death with joy.. I live for the here and now.. I look forward to seeing my kids grow up and maybe my grandchildren... Life is for living, not to look forward to death ....If I was dying soon, I would feel no joy....In fact, I would feel sad that I will miss out on so much.. I would want to be able to be there for them in the flesh, to see them through life as much as possible.. I am a mother, I feel it is my right.. Joy will ony hit me, when I reach heaven,.but not when I am dying..... Heaven can wait
