I went to church to participate in our “Happiness Hour”-studying about happiness. It pleased me to see that everyone was happy to see me!
We have been studying Dennis Prager’s book “ Happiness is a Serious Problem” at church as “Happy Hour” and today we learn “Happiness” involves pain. So why do we avoid pain? It is true for me, who am going through cancer. It’s a terrible experience, but at the same time I am experiencing happiness also! I need to focus on the happy side and beat the terrible side. Instead of avoiding pain or struggle by detaching from them, we need to find hope in struggle and go through it, and because God is always so faithful, with Him we can always find hope even in” the shadow of death”.
