The Secret To Happiness

The Secret to Happiness

Here’s an early Christmas gift for you.  It’s one I discovered during the first months of widowhood as I grieved the death of my husband, best friend, and soul mate.  As I struggled to make my way as a single in a world seemingly designed for couples, I came across this passage in Scripture:

Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”  (I Thessalonians 5:16-18, NIV)

Though these three choices are easier to pay lip service to rather than actually practice, I discovered that the more I tried to implement them, the happier I became.  It’s transforming!
