What is Happiness?
With Spring here I've noticed a sort of languid ho-hum in the air. Have you? It's as though the world just sat back and gave a big sigh. People are telling me they're sleeping more, and they're complaining of laziness. Never mind the volcanoes erupting in Iceland and things like pollution and even pollen-- Maybe we're all a little bit tired. Or maybe it's what the songs call Spring Fever. Winter and worry has worn us out. But I believe this is a time to contend for the power of the Word of God in our lives and in the lives of our families and friends. I believe this is a time to contend for our cities and our neighborhoods. (Always for our nation.) Yes, okay, "a little sleep, a little folding of the hands," but then up and attum, I say. Time to start anew, re-energize, gear up and create something astonishing and wonderful around us. Prayer changes everything. Don't give up, don't fall asleep in the Light-- Strength creates more strength-- beauty moe beauty-- love more love.
