One thought on “State(s) of Happiness”

  1. Being happy and having joy unspeakable are two different things. Now ask how many have that?
    If you don’t understand it’s knowing your name is written in the lambs book of life, that one day I’ll forever be with my Savior and Lord, all my loved ones and friends in a place He’s been preparing for over 2,000 years.
    Now that’s joy unspeakable!
