Happiness Ramble

By Walt Perryman

My lifeís dreams were always where I was not.
Therefore, I was always moving around a lot!

My problem was, wherever I went, I was there too.
Before long I was doing the same things I used to do.

Until I discovered that happiness was not a place,
Itís in your heart and soul and shows on your face.

So, if you are still looking on the map for happiness,
Stay where you are and ask God for His forgiveness!

Life is too short to be unhappy wherever you reside,
Instead, keep a smile on your face and God by your side.

When you live like God wants you to,
Give it time and happiness will find you.
