The foolish man seeks happiness in the distance; the wise grows it under his feet. (James Oppenheim, 19th & 20th century American poet, novelist, and editor)

If we’re living as if happiness is a goal that can be achieved only in the distant future, we are missing out on the pleasure that we could be enjoying daily, right now. The “pie in the sky, blessings bye and bye” outlook deprives us of what we can experience in the present. Make every effort to pursue worthy efforts today that will bring joy in fulfillment.

To the person who pleases him, God gives wisdom, knowledge and happiness (Ecclesiastes 2:26).
