The happiest child I know happens to have Downs Syndrome. He hasn’t a care in the world, or one that lasts longer than two minutes.

Every night he goes to sleep with no bitter or angry feelings. His soul is at peace with everyone. His mind is fresh and new each day. No resentment ever takes hold.

He is totally amused, fascinated and entranced in the simplest things of life: A shadow, a string.

His mind is not complicated with troubles in life. Where to go, what to do, who to like or dislike. He trusts all men, smiles at every person, forgives all with uninhibited release.

He goes about life slowly somewhat in his own world with a smile, a hug, a pat on the back.

He looks at me and smiles as he says, “I love you”, “thank you”, “why can’t you be as happy as me?”

Because my mind is strong, my IQ high, I’m in this world, mixed up in this world loaded down with the cares of the world. Struggling through the miry clay. Too many things to think about and decide.

Why can’t you be simple just this once and clear your mind of all else and believe in a Man who cares for you, a Savior who loves you, Jesus who died for you.

Jesus the ultimate Joy unspeakable.

“Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory:” (1 Peter 1:8).

“Therefore the redeemed of the LORD shall return, and come with singing unto Zion; and everlasting joy shall be upon their head: they shall obtain gladness and joy; and sorrow and mourning shall flee away” (Isaiah 51:11).
