Dwelling in Happiness by Carole Brown

Happy are your men,
and happy are these servants
who stand continually

and hear your wisdom.
Second Chronicles 9:7

Starli Cameron was a successful person. She owned her own restaurant business: an up-class place that catered delicious foods. She was a talented pianist. Her features were beautiful, her body slim and strong from running and ice skating, her clothes well fitting and gorgeous. She was loved and had friends.

Was she happy?

Queen of Sheba visited King Solomon to talk with him. She came bearing vast and glorious gifts.

Everyone wants to be happy, but sometimes real happiness can be hard to find.

Psalm 144:15 says: "Happy are the people whose God is the Lord" 

And that is so very true.

  1. A beautiful reminder that true happiness is only in Jesus Christ our Savior and soon coming King. Thank you for sharing, Carole.

  2. The only way we can be happy is in God. Everyone else just disappoints! Thanks.
