Strive to find happiness!

March is a month for happiness! Winter is wrapping up and spring is the light at the end of the tunnel. 

I have written a new song about the subject of happiness. One day while I was riding in the backseat of my parents car we were discussing the word of a family friend. She was very well off, she had nice cars, a big house, loving family, but still found herself hiding in a closet at night crying. 

I joked that her closet was probably big enough to have a tv, lounge chair and small fridge in it. 

We all laughed at my humorous observation. Then the discussion took a serious turn to what it really means to find happiness. 

When is enough...enough? Is happiness measured by how many things  you have? How many friends? Or how much love you have? 

Then my mother said something profound, “I think happiness is finding the mighty peace of God in your heart” 

This conversation led to a song which will be in my next album, “Grace and Grit”.

    Hey Val! I have to say your Mom is absolutely right!! I can't wait to hear your new albums I'm sure they'll be fantastic. Hope I'll get to have a visit with you the next time you come back "home" to Holt & Kearney. One of these days I'll manage to figure out how to get "Bell Buckle Radio" on my computer. Tammy
