Ed Hays has very inspiring words concerning happiness.
Simply to have all the necessities of life and three meals a day will not bring happiness. Happiness is hidden in the unnecessary and in those impractical things that bring delight to the inner person...When we lack proper time for the simple pleasures of life, for the enjoyment of eating, drinking, playing, creating, visiting friends, and watching children at play, then we have missed the purpose of life. Not on bread alone do we live but on all these human and heart-hungry luxuries.How very true! Happiness is not bought. Happiness could never be rented. Happiness could only be lived by those who have innocent and simple hearts. Happiness is within each person. We could only find it when we free ourselves from the daily distractions of our lives.
