So much has been written about happiness ~ the way to it,
the reasons for it, the symbols of it ~ and still people search
for that very special something that will assure happiness
forever after. Of all the recipes for lasting happiness, we
finally have to mix our own. But the one thing everyone
has in common is the need for a little bit more. We have this
and this, for which we are very thankful, but always the need
is extended to that little bit more.
Happiness is like any other part of our lives, we must use
wisdom in seeking it. We too often rush headlong into something
that seems to be instant happiness, all the time telling ourselves we
can right the wrong at a later time. But happiness doesn't remain
happiness for very long when it has such strings attached.
In order to be rightly happy we concentrate on getting, but it is
giving that we find most necessary to mix into every recipe.
To some happiness will always be elusive, never quite settling
anywhere, never quite revealing itself, for they have yet to learn
that happiness has the wings of angels, the breath of God,
and the love of man, all hidden within Him.
