We know that there is a vast difference between joy and happiness. True joy, found in a deep and eternal relationship with God, cannot be stolen or taken from us. Happiness, on the other hand, is very much an up and down sort of human experience, often dependent on circumstances. However....finding pleasure in everyday, simple things can bring us so many opportunities to feel just plain happy. Today I am taking great pleasure in watching the snow fall...in listening to good music... and savoring my cup of tea. Where are you finding your moments of happiness today?
"We are about as happy as we make up our minds to be." ~ Abraham Lincoln
