Happiness consists not in having, but of being, not of possessing, but of enjoying. It is the warm glow of a heart at peace with itself. (Norman Vincent Peale, late preacher and author)

In modern society people seem to be pursuing happiness by accumulating more “stuff.” Full garages and overflowing storage bins testify to that fruitless search. But, as Peale suggests, happiness is really a state of being, not owning. To find peace within yourself, however, you would do well to look to the Creator who made you to have joy in a relationship with Him.

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him (Romans 15:13).
