Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

can't be happy

"This is a great irony —
people who have every reason to be content seldom are.
Though happiness is their aim,
it seems always out of reach.
I wonder if gratefulness is the bridge from sorrow to joy,
spanning the chasm of our anxious striving.
Freed from the burden of unbridled desires,
we can enjoy what we have,
celebrate what we've attained,
and appreciate the familiar.
For if we can't be happy now,
we'll likely not be happy when."
- Philip Gulley
(Porch Talk)
