Author and blogger Julie Davis considers herself a “Happy Catholic” (also the title of her blog) not only because her spiritual journey has taken her from atheism to belief, but because it’s changed her attitude about life.
Julie admitted on Christopher Closeup that she’d always been a negative, glass-is-half-empty person who was good with a stinging putdown of someone else. A few years after she started blogging, she saw some people commenting about her, “I love Julie. She’s so happy, cheerful, perky and optimistic.” Julie realized, “I am now a glass-is-half-full kind of person.”
You have put gladness in my heart. (Psalm 4:7)
Father, teach me to live joyfully.
