Happiness is Blooming Where You Are

To the girl who wishes she were elsewhere,  
Be happy.
Rejoice in the Lord.
Because happiness and contentment are not found in having your own home or in owning an assortment of dainty dishes. Joy is not gotten in the collection of books nor is it discovered in soft, feminine clothing. Peace is not even found in the arms of a lover or in darling babies.
These things are beautiful and good--worthy of praise--but you will not find true, enduring happiness in them.
Joy is found in a thankful heart.
Bloom where you have been planted and rejoice in the care of your Lord.
. . .
