Titus 2:3-5 says, “The older women likewise, that they be reverent in behaviour, not slanderers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things … that they admonish the young women to love their husbands, to love their children, to be discreet, chaste, homemakers, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be blasphemed“.

A good mother teaches her children about the principles and the goodness of God and how to pray, and to honour their (earthly) fathers - even if they are not good fathers.

The Road to Happiness‏

.

I understand that two women were studying a painting titled “The Road to Happiness.” The scene was warm and compelling. “Isn’t that beautiful?” one of the women said to her friend.

.

But the other looked despondent. “Of course it’s beautiful. The only problem is … there is no such road.”

.

No road to happiness. And I suspect she may be right, in part, anyway. There is no one path that, if we just follow, we will be sure to arrive at happiness. But that doesn’t mean there are not various roads to greater happiness. And one path is really quite simple: to stop thinking that happiness as a state of being somewhere in the future. If we can’t be happy now, can we be happy later?

.

Writer Barbara DeAngelis, in her book REAL MOMENTS says this about happiness: “Although when we say, ‘I want to be happy’ we are usually projecting ourselves into the future, happiness, by definition, can only be found now, in this moment.”

Forget about being happy later, she says, happiness right here and right now is all there really is.

.

She continues, “If you can’t be happy now with what you have and who you are, you will not be happy when you get what you think you want. If you don’t know how to fully enjoy $500, you won’t enjoy $5,000 or $500,000. If you can’t fully enjoy taking a walk around the block with your mate, then you won’t enjoy going to Hawaii or Paris. I’m not saying that having more money or more recreation won’t make your life easier. It will. But it won’t make you happier because it can’t.”

.

And we don’t have to take her word for it. The Dalai Lama (THE ART OF HAPPINESS), who has made a study of these things, puts it this way: “We don’t need more money, we don’t need greater success or fame, we don’t need the perfect body or even the perfect mate - right now, at this very moment, we have a mind, which is all the basic equipment we need to achieve complete happiness.”

.

So we all have, at this very moment, the basic equipment we need to achieve happiness. That means there really IS a road to happiness – and you and I are on it. In fact, we’ve ALWAYS been on it. Is there a reason we can’t be happy now?

Let me ask you a question. I know it sounds a bit morbid. But, could you be happy right now if you

A MountainWings Moment — Click - Click - Click‏

Click - Click - Click
======================

.

We had finished eating at an oriental restaurant in Barcelona.

.

I learned in Spain, at least in Barcelona, they don’t hurry with
your check after your meal. Actually, they don’t bring it at
all until you ask for it. Quite different from America where
your dishes are often removed while you are still chewing and
your check is plopped down before you’ve swallowed.

.

So we sat talking, no check in sight.

.

Click - Click - Click

.

What was that sound?

.

I looked around. It was emanating from the cash register.
There was an elderly Chinese woman standing there. She was
adding up the day’s receipts as she passed receipts from one
pile to another like playing cards.

.

The Click - Click - Click was the sound of the beads hitting
each other on an abacus. The receipts moved by with amazing
speed as her hands swiftly and expertly manipulated the ancient
adding machine.

.

I watched - she added.

.

In case you don’t know, an abacus is an ancient mathematical
machine. It looks like a picture frame with wire rods running
through it with beads the size of marbles on it.
It looks like a child’s toy.

.

Click - Click - Click

.

No power cord. No batteries. No plastic.
No LCD’s, LED’s, FET’s, LSI’s, or CRT’s.
No DOS, Linux, Palm OS, Android, iOS, Windows 98, 2000, ME, CE,
NT, XP, 7 or 8.

.

Just wood, wire, beads, fingers,
and an old lady with focus and skill.

.

Click - Click - Click

.

The receipts flew by. I watched.

.

I wondered, “could I add faster with a modern calculator?”

.

I watched one pile of receipts shrink as the other grew.

.

I type fairly fast. I can add on an adding machine fairly fast.
I’ve run a cash register and worked in an accounting office.

.

I estimated my speed with the benefits of the latest silicon
technology against the old lady with wood, wire, and beads.

.

As I watched the receipts fly, I knew I couldn’t keep up.

.

Years ago, the army tested the electric calculator and it’s best
operator against a trained abacus user. Guess who won?

.

The abacus was not only faster, but produced less mistakes.

.

So what’s the point of Click - Click - Click?

.

I have the latest gadgets, the most up to date electronics.
The phone on my belt has a calculator that would perform all
types of calculations with lightening speed. There was no way
the abacus could compare with the speed of my high-powered
megahertz processor.

.

Then why did I feel I would lose in a contest with the abacus?

.

Because the limiting factor was not the machine, it was me.

.

We are conditioned to think in terms of the limiting factors in
life as the things around us. We want faster computers, faster
cars, faster internet connections, faster flows of information,
better stuff, better this and better that.

.

We think, “If I can just get better stuff around me, stuff will
be better in me.”

.

The limitations in life are not external, they are internal.

.

The old lady took a simple device but used it with skill and
focus. You will be amazed at what you can do with the simple
things of life with skill and focus. You will be amazed that

God’s Divine Healing is Spiritual.

It is administered through the human spirit.

(1 Cor. 2:9-12)

Psalms 107:20 tells us that God sent His Word and healed THEM.

Courtesy and kindness soften the nature that is hard and rough. 

My desire is to sow the seed of courtesy and kindness today so that the

seed of love

will be planted and bring forth fruits.
