Happy Birthday, Melissa💗
In spite of this past winter and spring's thorns (aka lockdown)
we cherished its rose...Melissa living at home for a while!
We miss you and love you
and also are so thankful that life is feeling a bit more normal
and you can get your city-life fix again😊
So many precious moments enjoyed...
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
give thanks in all circumstances;
for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.
Wishing you a wonder-full year ahead filled with happiness!
Happiness is life’s lovely prize
Not hiding in what money buys
But in contentment’s treasure trove
In trusting God, in faith and love
In cherishing the day in hand
As it washes across the land
Like waves that wash across the beach
In the sweet pleasure of a peach
In tasting fully every drop
That sparkles from yon Mercy-cup
Happiness is a job well done
Not found in wild-goose chase of ‘fun’
But in the awed awareness of
The One who grants life's work-pray-love
And gives us Hope no matter what
Perplexes us with ‘if’ and but’
It fills time's mist of highs and lows
Not just with thorns but with the rose
And as we trust God with each need
We will be most happy in deed
Happiness is love’s ‘welcome home’
The joys that turn into a poem
A willing-to-help attitude
A second-to-none gratitude
A hug, a smile, a love-you wave
Making the best of what we have
Embracing who we are because
Of Who created each of us
His one-of-a-kind works of art
Happiness is a thankful heart
