Recipe for a Terrible Day

Take a pinch of ill humor;
Add one of more unfortunate incidents.
Set over a good fire.

Add a tablespoon of temper.
Baste from time to time with sarcasm.
Cook until edges curl.
Add handful of haughty words'
As mixture curdles, stir furiously.
Warning" Do not cover -- may blow top! Serve while sizzling.

Now which kind of a day would you prefer to have?

Are you happy? What would make you happy? Well the Bible tells us that TRUST in the LORD will give you a happiness that the world can't give you. Happiness doesn't come from other people or from things. True happiness comes from the Lord.

"Every good and perfect gift comes from the Father above......"
~James 1:17~

Each day is a gift from God. What you do with it is your gift to Him and others.
How are you using that gift? Can others see in you the source of your happiness?

Remember that the fruit of the spirit are a reflection of the kind of happiness we can have as Christians.

Take the LOVE TEST!!

"But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness,
faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. "
~Galatians 5:22-23~
