A SURE WAY TO A HAPPY DAY
Happiness is something we create in our mind.
Its not something we search for & seldom find.
It’s just waking up & beginning the day
By counting our blessings & kneeling to pray.
It’s giving up thoughts that breed discontent
And accepting what comes as a gift heaven-sent.
It’s giving up wishing for things we have not
And making the best of whatever we’ve got,
It’s knowing that life is determined for us’
And pursuing our tasks without fret, fear, or fuss.
For it’s by completing what God gives us to do
That we find real contentment & Happiness too.
