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.
