Happiness With Help


When it’s hard to be happy while living with chronic pain or receiving sad news, God offers this:

“I will strengthen you, I will help you. I will uphold you with my victorious right hand.” Isaiah 41:10

Happiness Is…


This morning I read this quote by the late Dr. Robert Schuller:

“At the core of every being is the desire to be happy. Happiness is a state of mind and is achieved by choice. You can be happy in any set of circumstances if you choose to be.”

Happy Saturday.

Oh What a Beautiful Day


I know that somewhere in the world there are snow storms, hurricanes, earthquakes and the like. But in my little corner of the world the sun is shining, the air is still, the leaves are moving gently on the trees and the temperature is perfect. It reminds me of an old song on a new day. Happy Saturday.

I’m For the Birds


Along with the red wing blackbirds, chickadees, robins, cardinals, and sparrows usually hanging out in my yard, these three newcomers paid me a visit within the last few days. It made me very happy to see the rose breasted grosbeak, a bluebird and a junco vying for a place on the feeder and even gracing my deck with a short visit. All these feathered friends add to my happiness. Happy Saturday.
