happiness

Happiness is being in the house of God or the company of Christian friends ALL DAY LONG.

Happiness is seeing the old folks at the nursing home light up with joy when they see us walk in the door.

Happiness is playing the piano -- not once, not twice, but three times -- in one day.

Happiness is sharing a laugh (or ten) with a friend.

Happiness is driving my little car with the sunroof open on the open, clear roads.

Happiness is unexpected invitations.

Happiness is being the recipient of hospitality.

Happiness is a steaming cup of apple cinnamon tea from Timmy's.

(Ultimate) happiness is knowing that God has saved ME despite what I have or haven't done.

Happiness is going to Rita's. (gulp)

Okay, okay, well, nine out of ten ain't bad! Hopefully number ten can be fulfilled in a couple of weeks or so. :)

P.S. If you want to be happy, stop driving by gas stations.

Unfortunately I have to drive by the gas station to get to church every day... and the prices are completely discouraging. But other than that, I'm happy:o).

You are right about the gas stations!! I filled up our car this morning from 1/4 of a tank. It cost $51 to fill it!! YIKES!! I'm so thankful the Lord let us trade in our Ford Expedition!! It would have cost around $100 to fill that thing up! Thank you Lord for knowing what is best for your children!
