Day 350: Com' on..Git Happy!

Today's Reading: Philippians 1-4

One of my favorite movies is Pollyanna, starring the incredible Halley Mills. One little girl comes into a town of grouches, gossips, self-absorbed and greedy people and changes everything with JOY.

She encourages everyone to re-think life...to look for the bright side in every situation. This becomes a game of wits, and as people put their efforts into the task, smiles come into their lives.

The letter to the Philippians is the Pollyanna book. It calls us to rejoice! To rejoice in the LORD. To rejoice in the promises. To rejoice in the future. To rejoice today.

The more we trust, the more we can live joyful lives. It's a matter of what one sets one's mind upon.

Forget your troubles
Come on get happy
You better chase all you cares away
Shout hallelujah
Come on get happy
Get ready for the judgment day

The sun is shining
Come on get happy
The LORD is waiting to take your hand
Shout hallelujah
Come on get happy
We're going to the promise land

We're heading across the river
Wash your sins away in the tide
It's all so peaceful on the other side
