Easy Like Sunday Morning...

Dona asks:

Easy #35 Sunday morning!

Been working on a graphic for the Sunday Easy entries, so I've been a bit absent.  But earlier today I was surfing around and came across a journaler who had Pink's video 'Stupid Girls' playing.  I watched the video (for the first time ever), read the author's entry and comments, went off-line and headed downstairs to the laundry room.  And I got to thinking...

Tell me...

What does happiness mean to you?


What an awesome question I have to say, great way to get me thinking on a Monday mid-morning! For me happiness means:Knowing that even in all my sins, Jesus loves me and that I'm forgiven, and will one day be with my KING and my "princess" in Heaven.

Happiness means, that even if the only "company" I have is myself, I'm content.  

 Chad, Jacob, and Jackson...just writing their names brings a smile to my face. Happiness is a few good friends who know my faults and still love me and I know theirs and still love them.

That I don't need the world to tell me what it is to be happy, that I can and have defined my own happiness and it's not "worldly" happiness. That I can see a bigger picture and know that even in the dark hours, the sun will shine again.

Jacob singing. Jackson singing in his own little way.

The fullness of my heart. Not longing for what "might have been" or "could have" or "should have". Realizing that longing for things that I have no control over or did not turn out one way or another is exactly how GOD meant for them to turn out.

It's not materialistic. It's not fleeting. It's not fast and hard, but instead slow and gentle.

It's being comfortable with myself, who I am inside, knowing that although I'm not perfect that I'm loved and deserved to be loved. That I have more than I deserve and for some reason God continues to bless me with his precious love.
