And now, my children, listen to me: happy are those who keep my ways.
Proverbs 8:32 NRSV
In grief, quiet desperation, loneliness, and emotional misery often drive the pursuit of superficial happiness. The media suggest every day what will make you happy. Family and friends want to reconstruct your happiness according to their idea of your well-being. Happiness begins where you are. It happens within your heart.
God, as your child I listen to hear your voice. May I keep your ways in faithfulness to your will. Amen.
Happiness is an inside story.
