Happy

What would it take to make you happy?

That was the question our pastor opened his message with on Sunday. He reported some findings from study somewhere that yielded top answers such as more friends, losing weight, a better job, and lots of other external things. But of course lasting happiness doesn’t come from external things, we were reminded. Do you agree?

  1. Your post about being happy makes me realize Dad probably talked to you the day of the sermon, cause he called me too and said that you were happy. It seemed out of context. A good book makes me happy, so do letters in the mail, and ice cream on a hot summer day.

  2. It has been brought to my attention that I didn’t answer my own questions. So it’s high time:What would it take to make you happy? For the most part, I already am, though a bit more fellowship would be a good thing.What makes you happy? Being a mom, meaningful relationships, meaningful work, good books, essays, and poems, serving other people, a clean kitchen, a nice long walk or bike ride
