We had a day, a few weeks ago, that was kind of a bad day. So, when David heard there was a new Kevin Hart movie out that was PG-13, he said, “Baby, let’s go!”
Kevin Hart is my husband’s favorite comedian! So, we went and David started laughing and having a good time. He was truly enjoying himself!
In fact, he was so happy that it kind of made me MAD!
He had his arm around me. Then, when a funny part came up, he’d start leaning his head over on me and beating on my arm!
(You know, hitting me doesn’t make me happy!)
Then he started laughing that laugh where spit comes out…all over my face! I was really annoyed at all this happiness!
Quit being SO happy!!! Can’t you see, I’m still very upset, here?
Of course, the problem wasn’t him, at all. It was ME! Sometimes, we just have to go ahead and force our face to be happy!
Sometimes, we have to put on the garments of praise! We have to rejoice in the Lord always, and again I say, REJOICE!
Sometimes, we just need to praise God when we don’t want to praise Him!
Because, when we praise God, we get in His presence. And in His presence is the fullness of JOY!
And that, my friends, is the complete circle of how to get HAPPY!
Do you have a “go to” movie or song or activity that always cheers you up? What is it?
