Religious Thoughts Are you happy? Really? Happiness is one of those qua- lities saddly missing in the lives of many people in our country. So often we equate happiness with prosperity and security. Happiness is that which is just over the hill which we are going to get when something special happens or some depressing problem is solved. The day arrives, the problems are solved, the situation is settled, and the special thing is realized. Where is the happinesswe thought such would bring? We find that happiness again has eluded us and we are looking at the horizon longing for it, yes, and again equating it with something that is going to happen in the near future. Does this sound familiar? What is happiness? Webster's dictionary defines happiness as: "good fortune, prosperity, a pleasurable satisfaction." None of us would want to dis- agree with Mr. Webster, but a lot of people have prosper- ed, and do so, only to awake to a miserable situation and unhappiness. Others have had good fortune only to find that this good fortune has made them miserable. Surely, hap- piness means more than this and has its roots deeper than material things and human satisfaction, The Bible equates happiness with spiritual qualities. It follows hard on the heels of love as a qualityoflife mentioned by Jesus. In listing the qualities and char- acteristics of the spiritual life, the Apostle Paul put love first, then Joy. Happiness is the product and the fruit of a life founded in love, concern, and consideration for others. If you seek real happiness, learn to love. Be con- cerned about other people and reveal that concern in some outward expression and you will find real happiness; for happiness is the result of feeding your soul on the spiri- tual things of God as well as feeding your body on the physical bread, the physical necessities of this life. Happiness doesn't just happen. You have to work at it. Start by being kind to others. Start where you live, in your own home. Work on your soul by putting yourself in a spir- itual environment so that some of God's sunshine will rub off on you. Attend the church of your choice and involve yourself in its worship. Read your Bible. Begin to revolve your life around a good purpose that helps others; then, you will be happy. For you to stay happy, this will need to become a habit of your life, a continuous thing. Do what the Golden Rule really says; put God and others first and you will find that spiritual glow -- happiness --which shines through and out of your personality. Why not start howl Happiness doesn't Just happen. You have to work at it. VOLLEYB.LL action was supurb over the volleyball tournament held here. Here's Just action.
