Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies is just stuck on the whole be happy, happy, joy, joy, joy thing to the point of silly. Another post about being happy and trusting in God.
Filling your quiver, i.e. having as many children as possible, will give you double happiness sounds like a loony Chinese fortune cookie message gone awry. I know one thing it will do, making it increasingly harder for you to support them in any way. Not having adequate resources for the entire family brings inner shame, worry and a host of other negative things no matter what Nancy claims.
It’s one thing to have peace in troubled time. But it’s an entirely different animal to go into the state of grinning wildly every single moment of every day. Fake joy plastered on a face covering pain, sorrow and a million other things.
Jesus wept. It’s scriptural, and it seems to indicated that having different emotions, even nasty negative ones, is simply part of life here on earth.
As always when Nancy starts ordering people to be oh so happy I think of the scene in the cartoon ‘Ren and Stimpy’ where Stimpy outfits Ren with a helmet that prevents him from experiencing anything but joy. It does not work out too well, even cartoon Ren knows that mindless happiness does not suit him at all.
