Happiness is one of the most important treasures. It is within your soul. All you have to do, is dig it out and enjoy it.

There is no need to search for happiness or to create it. There is no need to undergo all kinds of external experiences in order to enjoy it. It is always here, deep within your soul.

Happiness comes from within.
Your attitude decides whether you are happy or not. You can change your attitude.

Happiness is a state of mind. More correctly put, it is the state beyond the mind.
It is our attitude that makes us feel happy or unhappy.

Your thoughts and worries hide away your happiness.
If you smile while you talk, you make people happy.

As we sit today in this winter storm watching the high surf on the news, learning of flooding and road closures we are a bit anxious about leaving tonight to get to church to teach Kids Small Group.

We really did nothing today and most would classify this day as boring.  But I am happy.  Happy to do nothing.  Happy to be inside and warm and dry.  

In a bit we will venture out - braving the rain and wind to go serve a mighty God.  He has called us to serve - so for that I am happy.  I am happy to go and happy to comply.  I will greet my KSG Kids with a smile and let them know how happy I am that they came.

Tonight we are learning about Heaven and what Heaven may be like.  It is after all the HAPPIEST place ever!  

I hope that where ever you are - you are safe, warm and happy.  Remember...Happiness is but a state of mind!
