"Rejoice in the Lord always: Rejoice!"

As we continue on our quest to ascertain what kind of people we should be, up popped happiness. I believe that God wants us to be happy people. We had a Memorial Day cookout at our home yesterday. After a short service to remind us of what the day was all about, punctuated by the playing of TAPS, we fellowshipped together. We began at about 2 PM and the last folks left at about nightfall. We all had plenty to eat, the kids played, but the best part was spending time with each other and being happy. Little groups chatted with one another, and pretty soon the people moved to different groups. Fellowship is such an important dynamic to church activity, partially, because we get to see how blessed we are. I think we get to see how happy we are as we are together under the umbrella of our faith and belief, basking in the glow of being God's children. In 1 Thessalonians 5:16. the apostle Paul succinctly says; "Be joyful always..." One of the best things about yesterday was seeing all the smiles. There is nothing that replaces a smile. Dogs and cats can't do it.... Gold and diamonds can't do... Money can't do it... Smiles are strictly the prerogative of human beings, and Christians ought to do it the best. Why you ask? Because we're God's children... Because we have an extended family that is second to none... Because we are saved to live again with the Lord. Make a special effort to smile a lot today, and if some rain falls, let that smile be your umbrella...

Have a wonderful day... Do good and give God the credit... Love mark Phil.4:11
