Happy Soul When did we decide life was about how many A’s you got on your report card? Or how many points you scored in a basketball game? Or the highest note you could play on your trumpet? Or how much you paid for the car parked in your driveway? Or how many “friends” you have on Facebook? Emily didn’t care about any of those things. And she certainly didn’t waste her time with Facebook. She was a happy soul. A guy once wrote a song titled: “Don’t worry; Be happy.” The guy likely stole the idea from Emily, but Emily didn’t care. She was a happy soul. Emily exemplifies the words to that old church hymn: “Till my trophies at last I lay down. I will cling to the old Rugged Cross. And exchange it some day for a crown.”
