I long to see you so that I may impart to you some spiritual gift to make you strong - that is, that you and I may be mutually encouraged by each other’s faith. (Romans 1:11-12) NIV
What does your soul crave today? What or whom is holding your happiness – true happiness…right now? Have you thought about it lately?
Seems a big word sometimes. Sometimes easily grasped. Sometimes just out of reach.
But happy doesn’t go anywhere - it’s always there. Waiting to be seen…to be discovered and held deep inside.

Does it appear from the hands of man?
Does it need to sparkle and shine and come in a small box
Tied with a promise of forever?
Or is it captured unexpectedly gifted by the Giver of all things pure and holy
Wrapped plain and simple
Tied instead with ribbons of faith
A promise of the deepest joy

Sometimes, we overlook the happy meant for us
When our eyes are looking, searching for something bigger
Seems we all want something to look forward to but when happy finds a heart in which to live and thrive, we don’t have to look far.
