So Much More!

 
This morning I posted my eighth "triplet" of character traits 
I want to see increasingly a part of my 67 year old life.
H - Happy/Humble/Holy 
Within 30 minutes, the above meme appeared on my Facebook page.
Forget for a moment that "to" in "to short" should be "too",
but don't forget there is so much more to being happy
than being silly, fun, different and crazy!
Words of an old gospel song came to my mind:
Trust and obey, 
For there's no other way
To be happy in Jesus
But to trust and obey.
Incidentally, the Bible verse I posted this morning
supported the "holy" part of the triplet--
 Obey God because you are his children; don’t slip back into your old ways
—doing evil because you knew no better.  But be holy now in everything you do, 
just as the Lord is holy, who invited you to be his child. 
(I Peter 1:14-15) 
I don't "believe" in fortune cookies,
but it was pretty unusual to get this in my cookie 
only about 24 hours after posting my "happy/humble/holy" triplet!

  1. I haven't been blog visiting lately, in fact I haven't even been updating my own. Nonetheless, I am glad I stopped by. Your triplet character traits resonated with me. Happy/humble/holy - yes, there is so much more to being happy.

    1. Really? I haven't sung that in a congregation for a long time - but I HAVE played it on the organ several times while I'm with my mother in the nursing home....
