Being happy is a virtue too – Ludwig Borne
I couldn’t have said the above better myself. A disciple is not called to wear sackcloth and ashes, nor is he/she supposed to be a “downer” to be around. I think the greatest indicator God gives us of what his plan is for each of us is found in happiness. If something makes us happy, something brings us and those around us joy, then we are receiving a signal.
As we begin this week of thought and meditation, let’s spend some time on the things that bring us happiness and pursue that end.
