Who can define happiness?

Is it a feeling, or a state of mind?

Just as beauty is in the eye of the beholder,

So is happiness in the heart of the individual.


It can be like the early morning mist that quickly evaporates;

What creates happiness today, may be gone by tomorrow.

It may be as a tree that is nourished by the rain and sunshine;

Growing sturdy and tall, enduring throughout the years.


What invokes happiness is as individual as snowflakes;

But there is one common thread,

We all have an inherent need to find it,

For without it, life is void of purpose.


Happiness, short or long term, needs to be lived out.

It needs to be cherished, savored, and stored in our souls.

It is one of our most precious commodities.

Happiness weaves memories into the mundane of life.


Happiness, as a two edged sword, brings both joy and pain.

There is the joy of experiencing it for as long as it remains.

There is the pain of losing it with the change of circumstances.

Both create memories, one sweet, the other bittersweet.


There is one form of happiness that remains throughout eternity.

It transforms happiness into pure joy, it is in the one known as Jesus;

If He resides in our heart, we possess joy unspeakable and full of glory,

And we shall go from glory to glory until we shall see Him face to face.
