Catching The Wind

Happiness does not consist in pastimes and amusements but in virtuous activities.  -Aristotle

God gives us freewill to pursue happiness, but what on earth should we pursue?  "Happiness" is as fleating and evasive as grasping for the wind.  It's no wonder that when the Apostles decided to pursue Jesus in Acts 2, God used the sound of wind to give them the Holy Spirit.  Pursue Jesus and ask him for God's gift to you: the Holy Spirit.

If you then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him! (Luke 11:13, NIV).
