Joy | a father's story
Last Sunday at church, we were asked what brings us joy, as joy was this week’s advent theme. Typically, I would have to ponder on questions like these, but this one was easy.
Happy: Adjective: feeling pleasure and enjoyment because of your life, situation, etc. - Merriam-Webster Dictionary.
A wedding. A birth. Two moments in life that make us feel 100% happiness.
A diagnosis. A worry. Moments that make us feel unhappy.
But that is it - happiness is just a feeling.
But it’s life, situations, that bring us those feelings. One thing that I’ve been pondering is how I can eliminate worry. Worry is one of my biggest hurdles. Life can’t be lived to its full potential when we focus our feelings on our problems. What if we tried focusing on what brings happiness? Let me share my five.
