Holding On To The Happy

Psalm 32:1 – A David Psalm  Count yourself lucky, how happy you must be — you get a fresh start, your slate’s wiped clean.

Psalm 92:4 – You made me so happy GOD. I saw your work and I shouted for joy.

Psalm 105:3 – Honor his holy name with Hallelujahs, you who seek GOD.  Live a happy life!

Grabbing, white-knuckling the happy today.

We Shake With Joy, by Mary Oliver–

We shake with joy, we shake with grief.
What a time they have, these two
housed as they are in the same body.

Holding on to the Happy.
Choosing the Joy.
Counting the Gifts.

*Yellow tulips with buds offering future blooms – Hope.

*Friends who are there, friends who are givers of time and love.

*A blue sky day with lots of hope and joy in store

*Intense yellow sun beams pouring into my window calling me to come play

*A new follower of this blog who emailed me” I’m on board, I signed up”, humbling and kind.

*A new butterfly print is waiting for me to pick it up at the school.  A silent auction “win” for a little bit of money.  Its gorgeous.  Will take a picture and post it.

*My sweet blog readers.  They bless me and they humble me.

And click on the link below to help you grab on to your happy today.  I have listened to this song so many times, I’ve squeezed all the notes out of it.  Pushed replay and repeat so many times I’ve worn poor Jamie Grace out.

I pray for all my readers to rejoice and be glad and hold on to the happy today. Enjoy a little Easter joy early.  It is coming soon!!

Hold Me – Jamie Grace
