Wise thoughts from one of my favorite saints, John of the Cross:

"Very few people have the courage to be happy.
It is difficult to tear the heart away from the things of earth,
from riches, from honors.
Yet happiness is not outside us, in these things:
‘The kingdom of God is within you.’
For the kingdom of God does not consist in food and drink,
but in justice and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit."

 Convicting word from someone who counted the cost of living for Christ alone!
