Happiness is the ability to deal with problems

“You are precious in my sight.” Isaiah 43-4

Though adverse winds are blowing your way,

Press cheerfully on and do not condemn,

Happiness is not an absence of problems

But the ability to deal with them.

Make the most of the present moment,

Mindful we are just given strength for today,

Do your best with what you have,

Time is precious and soon fritters away.

‘Tis when we yield ourselves to a higher power,

Sent so freely from Heaven above,

We then draw an awesome awareness

Of a calm and unwavering love.

A wondrous power to uphold and protect you

Assured, to each problem He holds the key,

May we be content to rest in His keeping

And live each moment expectantly

Doreen Craig.
