Sunny Disposition....it's a choice
What can you do when the rain clouds come?
There are things we DO to make us happy....Listen to a book on cd, Read, Cleaning,
There are places we GO that make us happy....Home, Church, Nature, Vacation
There are PEOPLE that make us happy....the Lord, Family, Friends, Visitors
We can GET things to make us happy....gifts, food, treats
We can GIVE things to mae us happy...service, cards, smiles
There are soooo many reasons to be cheerful. It is good to understand a little about ourselves...what makes us cheerful. Some of us need a moment by ourselves to "recharge" others light up when they are in a crowd. Some of us need to give, some need to get. But all of us can choose to be cheerful. We can chose to scatter sunshine all along our way.
Previous to Christ agony and death he told his apostles to be of good cheer. Why would he do that when he was about to suffer as no man has suffered, be betrayed, tortured and die? Because he knew they could choose, and he wanted them to choose cheer. He knew this was a BIG rain cloud coming BUT he continues..."I have overcome the world" We can have ultimate cheer and happiness through the Savior, and His Atonment that we all can, threw Him, overcome the world. We can overcome our little dark rain clouds and bask in the light of His love.
