We’re just about as happy as we make up our minds to be. (Abraham Lincoln)

On this birthday of Lincoln, we are grateful not only for his political savviness and leadership but also for his down-home logic and simplicity. A lot of people spend time, energy, and money trying to find or create happiness as if it were to be found in things or places. In reality, being happy is the result of right thinking and behavior.

A glad heart makes a happy face… For the happy heart, life is a continual feast. (Proverbs 15:13, 15)
