Be happy and stay happy.

“We tend to forget that happiness doesn't come as a result of getting something we don't have, but rather of recognizing and appreciating what we do have.”
Frederick Keonig

Living Today

We need to understand that God gives us the grace to live today. He has not yet given us tomorrow's grace, and we should not worry about it. Learn to live one day at a time. By an act of your will, choose to start enjoying your life right now. Learn to enjoy your family, friends, health and work; enjoy everything in your life. Happiness is a decision you make, not an emotion you feel. God gives us His peace on the inside, but it's up to us to tap into God's supernatural peace. To enjoy your best life now is to choose to be happy this morning. Life is too short not to enjoy every single day.

Happy to Have a Big God

We have a big God that handles our problems. When we know we have a big God, our problems shrink in size and weight.

I have a lot to be thankful for. I am so grateful for having a loving family, good health and super friends that help in prayers.

I just want to thank the Lord. We do have a big God that takes care of our problems just as Brother Bo used to say.

Definition of Happiness

Suddenly, happiness has been redefined for me. True happiness is when you experience overflowing joy because of inexplicable love, matched with inner peace. This is kinda heavy and confusing, but that is how I find happiness, right now. I feel God's love, His embrace.

It is such that your serenity is kept in tact, even if you are undergoing pain (both physical and emotional), even in the midst of problems, issues and betrayal. I just have to thank our Maker for pouring out graces on us, unworthy as we are, giving us strength to accept everything that comes our way. It is by His grace that I am able to continue with life, still full of happiness.

Winning Smile

Mother Teresa said, "Every time you smile at someone, it is an action of love, a gift to that person, a beautiful thing."

So, keep on smiling!

Autumn Walk

I possess a happy heart for I am thankful to have seen autumn . . .

Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.
George Eliot

If a man . . . can paint a landscape, and convey into souls and ochres all the enchantments of Spring or Autumn; it is certain that the secret cannot be kept; the first witness tells it to a second, and men go by fives and tens and fifties to his doors. "
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Believe in yourself, your neighbors, your work, your ultimate attainment of more complete happiness. It is only the farmer who faithfully plants seeds in the Spring, who reaps a harvest in Autumn.
