Happiness is a choice...

The story is told of a man and woman who had been married for over 60 years. They had shared everything, except there was one secret in their marriage.

The wife had a shoe box in the top of her closet, and she had cautioned her husband never to open it and never to ask about it. He Never did.

But one day his wife got sick. It was determined that she would not recover. As they began to sort out her affairs, the husband took down the shoe box and took it to his wife.

They agreed that it was time that she should explain the box. When he opened it, he found two crocheted dolls and a stack of money totaling $25,000. He lovingly asked her about the contents.

She responded by saying “Just before we got married, my grandmother told me that the secret of a happy marriage was never to argue. She told me that if I ever got angry with you, I should just keep quiet and crochet a doll.

The husband was moved to tears, as he looked at the two dolls lying in the box. Only twice in all those years had his darling wife been angry with him.

He said, “But what about all this money? How did you manage to save all of this money?” “Oh” she answered, “that is the money I made from selling the dolls.”

The world does a lot of looking for happiness...people are constantly looking for things to make them feel better,

there is a lot of money spent by people to make themselves happy...there is a lot of money spent by other people making them happy.

Type in ‘happiness’ on Amazon.com and you’ll find 2,000 books on happiness.”

Does anybody remember the theme song from the Partridge family show?

Illus.

Hello world, here's a song that we're singin'

Come on, get happy

A whole lotta lovin' is what we'll be bringin'

We'll make you happy

We had a dream we'd go travelin' together

And spread a little lovin' if we'll keep movin' on

Somethin' always happens whenever we're together

We get a happy feelin' when we're singin' a song

That was written in the 70s and even as of late...there was a big hit on the radio called the happy song, have you heard it?

Because I'm happy

Clap along if you feel like a room without a roof

Because I'm happy

Clap along if you feel like happiness is the truth

Because I'm happy

Clap along if you know what happiness is to you

Because I'm happy

Clap along if you feel like that's what you wanna do

Written by Farrell Williams

If everybody wants to be happy…how's come

There are so many people that aren't happy?

The world has even created its own version of happy...it's called Happy Hour

A created time slot in the day when you just put off the cares and responsibilities of life and get happy...

you simply just forget about life for awhile.

You know some people...in fact a lot of people, even Christians could use an hour just like that at church...

a time where you let go of everything else and forget about all the

stuff on all of our minds and simply focus on Jesus,

Wouldn't that be something if we all came to church with one thing in mind to just simply focus on and praise the name of Jesus…

to many times, we bring what’s going on in our lives to church with us...

its not enough that we carry it with us every other place else we go....

The burdens of this world will suck the oxygen right out of you, they will take the wind right out of your sail, if you let them.

God knew there would be burdens in this world… That's why He made a way of escape for us in advance..

TBS. in Matthew 11:29-30 NKJV

29. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”

When we come into the Lords presence and it should be numerous times

throughout the week...even numerous times daily

each time...it should be a time of refreshment for our soul, spirit, body and mind.

Only the devil and the world, could come up with an idea...

That the things offered by his world will make you happy.

Although we experience many things in the presence of the Lord...

I would have to say that the joy of the Lord, should always a continual one...

TBS. “the joy of the Lord, is my strength”

But for a lot of Christians it makes you wonder...
