– A Happy Day –

HAPPINESS is something
we create in our mind.
It’s not something you search for
and so seldom find.
It’s just waking up
and beginning the day,
by counting our blessings
and kneeling to pray
It’s giving up thoughts that breed discontent,
and accepting what comes
as a “gift heaven sent”.
It’s giving up wishing
for things we have not,
and making the best of whatever we’ve got.
It’s knowing that life
is determined for us –
and pursuing our tasks
without fret, fume, or fuss.
For it’s by completing
what God gives us to do,
that we find
real contentment –
and happiness, too.

  1. Sorry you were sick, but glad you’re feeling better now.

    The lines that popped out of the poem at me was:
    “It’s giving up thoughts that breed discontent,
    and accepting what comes
    as a “gift heaven sent”

    I’m still learning!

  2. I got that poem out of one of the Gems Of Truth, actually! Don’t you love it?
    We’re all still learning together, and I think it should be that we never stop.
