POEMS: “A sure way to a happy day” by Helen Steiner Rice (Spirituality)

Happiness is something we create in our mind,

it’s not something you search for and seldom find.

It’s just waking up and beginning the day,

by counting our blessings and kneeling to pray.

It’s giving up thoughts that breed discontent,

and accepting what comes as a gift “heaven-sent”.

It’s giving up whining for things we have not.

It’s knowing that life is determined for us,

and pursuing our tasks

without fret, fume or fuss.

For it’s by completing

what God gives us to do,

that we find real contentment,

and happiness too.
