And multiply into a fragrant bower,
An alcove or shelter in which to reside,
A heaven-touched sphere in which to abide.
Choose to be happy, choose to have cheer.
It soon will make gloominess disappear.
Laughter has warmth and often will spark
New plans and ideas on which to embark.
The joy of the Lord adds strength for each day
And brings creativity for us to weigh.
In Him we prosper and will overcome
Those things which cause our days to be glum.
"And let the beauty and delightfulness and favor
of the Lord our God be upon us; confirm and
establish the work of our hands...."
Psalm 90:17 Amplified Bible
