I was about to get on the bus this morning and I forgot my shoes… I had tennis shoes on, had to get my heels (please note don’t stop praying for my foot it still hurts!) and a guy said to me “change your mind? Had enough? Going home?” and I said “no, just forgot my shoes” (which caused him to look at my feet lol).
I have to admit that before the Easter 4 days off, I was tired, and it may have occurred to me at any given moment to hope in my car and proceed home, but I wouldn’t do that. Easter has left me refreshed. A combination of 4 days off with serving, relaxing, and remembering what God has done for me has left me with a fresh and vibrant attitude.
It was a short conversation about me becoming a principal and him going into banking, he said “everyone I know that went into banking is so much happier”. I said that I thought happiness was a choice. He said “no, I don’t think so, too many external influences”.
I know that Joy comes from the Lord. But is happiness a choice?
In the Declaration of Independence it says that we have the unalienable right to “Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness”. The pursuit. We can go out an pursue what makes us happy, but being happy is not an unalienable right.
