Happiness is...

Happy Sunday Everyone!!!

Have you ever thought about the meaning of happiness and what it really is?  I hear all the time, that "I just want to be happy".   As I grow older I realize that happiness is a fleeting emotion and what we are really searching for is joy and peace.  Happiness is like that moment when a butterfly lands on your nose for just a moment and you squeal with delight.   God, I just love those magical moments and hope that all of us have lives full of them.   Can you imagine what our world would like if we all cherished these moments?   I want that world.  Well that is my world.  But my wish for you is one step further, I want joy for you.

Isaiah 40:31 but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
