"Can we ever have too much of a good thing?" Miguel de Cerrantes
What a question to ponder I would say! Now let's think about some 'good' things~ a deep and personal relationship with the Lord, health, food, shelter, clothing, love, family, a good church, friends, financial security~ I guess to name just a few off the top of my head. I am sure as each of you thinks about this your list may be similar or completely different. It all depends on what makes 'you' happy!
As I have said so often, happiness is a choice. Yes, people and circumstances can definitely contribute in one way or the other in our level of happiness, but the final decision is still ours. I always think of people who have truly suffered and thought about their legacies~ Corrie Ten Boom, Joni Erickson-Tada, Mother Theresa, to name a few. These people chose to accept the situations they were dealt in life and make a positive stand with them. They all chose to honor God in their sorrows and not blame Him. This can be a challenge for some, especially if they don't know His perfect love.
Today is sunny with lots of puddles, but I am feeling better, I still have a runny noes, but you know what? The sun is still shining, I am going to transplant some more of the Heirloom tomatoes in the green house (my personal HAPPY place), I have six wonderful, healthy busy children and so much more! Yes, there are lot's of 'things' I may want, but I have everything I need!
Until next time,
