What is Happiness to you? What brings you joy? What brightens your day? Who are you? What are you? Are you glad to be alive?
Happiness is something that we all want. Life comes with many us and downs, but there should be something in this life that makes you happy and full of joy. I am so thankful for each new day that I wake up because it is another opportunity to give God some morning glory and praise due His name. I never take it for granted anymore that each day is a gift from God.
Diamonds maybe a girls best friend. They are beautiful, but what makes me happy is that I have my life, health and strength. That I have a roof over my head and food on the table. I am happy that my children are grown and on their own. I am happy that I have plenty of healthy grandchildren and 1 great granddaughter.
Happiness is what you make it. Life doesn't have to be all about sadness. Lord knows I have had enough of that in my life. Romans 15:13 Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
