Her question was “how can you be so happy everyday?”
She knew my answer but she wanted to hear it. Happiness comes from the mind… pure joy comes from the heart. Abraham Lincoln said “people are as happy as they choose to be”. It’s only thru the dwelling of the holy spirit that you can experience joy. Happiness can grow dark but pure joy shines bright even in the darkest hour. When you find joy, heart filled joy, then the trials of this life become strangely dim. During those times of darkness. During those times when the storm is moving in, true joy will not fade as we look to Jesus, and his spirit, for strength. His light never fades and neither will yours.
I Love You!
