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.”

What Makes You Happy

. . . it is more than okay to live your joy. Whatever makes your heart sing is what God wants for you! Of course it's okay to be happy! Of course it's okay to fulfill your heart's deepest desires! What your soul most dearly and deeply desires is the very thing God wants for you.

When I came across this message, I asked myself " Well, what makes me happy??? What is it really that causes my heart to take a leap?" How come nothing solid comes to my mind?

But with all my life's concerns, I find myself just smiling and happy. I thank God for providing inner peace.

Being Happy

"Being happy doesn’t have anything to do with the size of your problems. Being happy has everything to do with the size of your hope. And that’s what you receive from God..."

Simple Happiness - Part II

The hairy critters at play . . .

Such a joy to look at them . . . but a big responsibility to take in these doggies, whom I treat as my additional children.

Was not too hot to have them at first, but am hooked to having them as my pets (addition to the family) NOW.

1 Corinthians 13:4

St. Paul shares his insights on "what is" and "what is not" love . . .

Love is patient and kind; it is not jealous or conceited or proud. Love is not ill-mannered or selfish or irritable; love does not keep a record of wrongs; love is not happy with evil, but is happy with the truth. Love never gives up;and its faith. hope, and patience never fail.

It struck me that I do the "Love is not" part. Not only that, I do it to those close to me, to family, to friends and to people at the workplace. Whew! Work-in-progress on how to have love.
