The days are long
They run through time but never end
Bringing us closer to the day of the end and the beginning
But what do we do with these days?
Fill our hearts with worldly desires and trinkets that make us happy
But do they?
Happiness is a walk in a peaceful place where your thoughts are not your own but are handed to you from the Savior above
Happiness is a contentedness that comes despite the chaos of life around
Happiness is a deep breath that fills your soul with the presence of the Spirit who loves beyond bound
Happiness is writing this and knowing its truth as it frees the brick inside my chest and lets a solitary tear run down my cheek
