They say that the bluebird of happiness is very hard to find. That may be because they are all living in my house! This is my collection of bleubirds, and I recently got a new one. Isn't this little crocheted bluebird cute? He is holding an umbrella and singing in the rain! My blog friend Doris over at Crocheting In Georgia, made him. She even wove tinsel into the umbrella that looks like rain! She crochets beautiful and whimsical things, and has an Etsy shop. Happiness is hard to find because it is dependant on circumstances, coming and going. But joy is an inner contentment no matter what, a constant thing. It comes from God and not things. I know people who have this joy and nothing shakes them, they worry about nothing. Not only does it give that bluebird a run for it's money, it beats him.
"But may the righteous be glad and rejoice before God; may they be happy and joyful."
