A Sure Way to a Happy Day

Happiness is something

we create in our mind,

It’s not something you search for

and so seldom find–

It’s just waking up

and beginning the day

By counting our blessings

and kneeling to pray–

It’s giving up thoughts

that breed discontent

And accepting what comes

as a “gift heaven-sent”–

It’s giving up wishing

for things we have not

And making the best of

whatever we’ve got–

It’s knowing that life

is determined for us,

And pursuing out tasks

without fret, fume, or fuss–

For it’s by completing

what God gives us to do

That we find real contentment

and happiness, too.
