I think you will have to agree with me, Mike's post this morning was nice. It epitomizes Mike. He has the most positive attitude of anyone I know. He always tries to be happy. His happiness is contagious.

Having had another one of "those days," I did some reading about happiness. I read in James 5:11, "Behold, we count them happy which endure (or are steadfast.) Ye have heard of the patience of Job, and have seen the end of the Lord; that the Lord is very compassionate and of tender mercy.

So... we are happy when we perservere, are patient, and like the Lord, have tender mercy or kindness. (Note: This is my interpretation.) I don't think I will wait until tomorrow to try this... I'll try to be more like Mike today. :)

  2. I think you and Mike are both incredibly positive, happy people. You are amazing....and I hope to be more like you.

  3. it's a new day :) hope it's a great one for both of you!

  4. I want to be just like you both when I grow up. Emolyn

  5. I think the one thing I remember from Randy Poole was that he said every morning he had only one choice to make for the day, to be in a "good" mood or "bad" mood. Simple, but wise words, so I think we should all practice always choosing the good one...SusanT
