It's a happy day

Good morning everyone! And it’s a rainy cold day here in New England, one of a series of rainy cold days that promises to continue for the next week. Yet this finds me cozy and happy with no reason to leave the house until Wednesday, plenty of work and my kids nearby.

So today I offer a few lines about being happy.


yea, happy is that people, whose God is the Lord.

God hath made me to laugh, so that all that hear will laugh with me.

Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding. … She is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her: and happy is every one that retaineth her.

When a man hath taken a new wife, he shall not go out to war, neither shall he be charged with any business: but he shall be free at home one year, and shall cheer up his wife which he hath taken.

And, behold, they brought to him a man sick of the palsy, lying on a bed: and Jesus seeing their faith said unto the sick of the palsy; Son, be of good cheer; thy sins be forgiven thee.

And straightway Jesus constrained his disciples to get into a ship, and to go before him unto the other side, while he sent the multitudes away. And when he had sent the multitudes away, he went up into a mountain apart to pray: and when the evening was come, he was there alone. But the ship was now in the midst of the sea, tossed with waves: for the wind was contrary. And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went unto them, walking on the sea. And when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, It is a spirit; and they cried out for fear. But straightway Jesus spake unto them, saying, Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid.

Soul has infinite resources with which to bless mankind, and happiness would be more readily attained and would be more secure in our keeping, if sought in Soul.

Blessed are ye that hunger now: for ye shall be filled. Blessed are ye that weep now: for ye shall laugh.

I agree with Rev. Dr. Talmage, that "there are wit, humor, and enduring vivacity among God's people."

--Mary Baker Eddy, Miscellaneous Writings p. 117

Happiness is spiritual, born of Truth and Love. It is unselfish; therefore it cannot exist alone, but requires all mankind to share it.
