This week is Hunt For Happiness week. That got me to thinking...what exactly does happiness mean? According to Webster : good fortune, luck, pleasure, joy, contentment,appropriateness. Now...where do we look for our happiness? Family, spouse, our things, places, our work? It's funny, I have always thought of outward things as well. Part of Websters definition of happiness is appropriateness.....that means, ourselves, in ourselves. So that leads me to believe that I have a huge part to play in my own happiness. I try to lay aside my troubles and am learning to lean on the Lord for help. If I get out of bed on the wrong side...I adjust my attitude....I don't wait for something "wonderful" to happen to make me feel better. Just a bit of food for thought as you go through this week. Make some happiness for yourself and then spread some around.
