God cannot give us a happiness and peace apart from Himself, because it is not there. There is no such thing.
C. S. Lewis
I could not agree with this quote more. With Christ in my life all happiness is brightened and even the strongest of life’s sorrows is weakened by the knowledge that My God shall swallow it all into Himself one day as I worship Him.
Lewis was brilliant – what a way with words.
Such beauty in both the roses and the words!
Thank you Deb!
Love that quote and that happy photo! 🙂
Happiness, yes – and joy even in distressing times, when we depend on our burden-bearer.
