Happiness is Blooming Where You Are

 
To the
girl who wishes she were elsewhere,  
Be happy.
Rejoice in the
Lord.
 
Because
happiness and contentment are not found in having your own home or in owning an
assortment of dainty dishes. Joy is not gotten in the collection of books nor
is it discovered in soft, feminine clothing. Peace is not even found in the
arms of a lover or in darling babies.

 

These
things are beautiful and good–worthy of praise–but you will not find true,
enduring happiness in them.

 

Joy is
found in a thankful heart.
Bloom
where you have been planted and rejoice in the care of your Lord.
. . .
