The Art Of Happiness # 1

PAD Challenge day 12: For today’s prompt, take the phrase “The Art of (blank),” replace the blank with a word or phrase, make the new phrase the title of your poem, and then, write your poem

 The Art of Happiness...

…is finding in the moment so much to be thankful for
…is wanting what we have instead of always wanting more
…is rejoicing with others in their hour of success
…is mourning with the sorrowing, not dodging their distress
…is doing, not as little but as much as best we can
…is being able to adapt to sudden change of plan
…is loving and leaving the rest to He who knows in full
…is not borrowing morrow’s trouble for today’s push-pull
…is cherishing the journey and not waiting for the goal
…is settling the account betwixt the Saviour and the Soul
