Happiness is a Warm Blanket…

February 10, 2011

You know, we often are asked that question “what makes you happy” and often things that come to mind are truly the esoteric things–the important things like family, friends, a good job and health. But when you think of it, there are so many things that can make us happy–and for a few days in January I knew that happiness is a warm blanket.
You know when you are in bed, and you are lying there cold–and you know that you should get up to get a blanket, but you dont want to leave the ‘warm’ bed, because you know that as soon as you throw the covers back, you will get colder…and so you keep lying there–cold-thinking of getting up, but too cold to get up? and on and on and on?? How happy would you be, if someone were to say–Hey, do you want this blanket? and they would cover you, without you moving a muscle? How nice would that be??
Now, picture that same scene–but this time, you are just lying there cold and you HAVE no blanket. Getting up is not an option, so you lie there huddled up in a ball for warmth, because you have nothing with which to warm yourself. Being cold is a fact of life for you.
Well, I am happy to say–that for over 150 people in Tala, India…that is not going to be the case anymore. Now, thanks to the generous donations of people in my church and the London, SDA church some folks in this far off corner of the world, will be warm. And, that dear reader is going to make them happy.
