Inspirational Thoughts

Happiness

Happiness is a butterfly, which, when pursued,
is always just beyond your grasp, but which, if you sit quietly,
may alight upon you.

Nathaniel Hawthorne

The lady and her neighbor

There’s a little old Christian lady living next door to an atheist. Every morning the lady comes out on her front porch and shouts “Praise the Lord!”. The atheist yells back, “There is no God!”

She does this every morning with the same result. As time goes on the lady runs into financial difficulties and has trouble buying food. She goes out onto the porch and asks God for help with groceries, then says, “Praise the Lord!”

The next morning she goes out onto the porch and there’s the groceries she’s asked for, and of course, she says, “Praise the Lord!”

The atheist jumps out from behind a bush and says, “Ha, I bought those groceries – there is no God!”

The lady looks at him and smiles and shouts, “Praise the Lord! Not only did you provide for me, Lord, you made Satan pay for the groceries!”

Doesn’t that brighten your day?
