A Recipe for Happiness

Published February 21, 2017 by Healthy Living with nature

 

 A Philosophy towards life.

Thinking of my loved ones is my recipe for happiness

Happiness is something 

we create in our mind

It’s not something we search for

 but can’t seem to find.

It’s not something that’s

 purchased with silver or gold

not something that force

 can capture and hold.

It’s just waking up

                                                           and beginning each new day,

by counting our blessings

 and kneeling to pray.

It’s giving up thoughts

that breed discontent,

and accepting what comes

as a gift heaven sent.

It’s giving up wishing 

for things we have not,

and making the best

whatever we’ve got.

It’s knowing that life

is determined and planned,

and that God holds the world

in the palm of his hand.

And it’s by completing

what God gives us to do,

that we find our contentment

and happiness, too.

  Joan Hiscock

May peace and happiness find their way from your heart. 

Perfect Presents

 Peaceful Presence

 

The gifts I’d leave beneath your tree

Aren’t those that you could touch or see.

Not wrapped in Christmas paper gay

But…. gifts to bless you everyday.

The gift of friendship warm and true

Is one that I would leave for you.

Good health and happiness and cheer,

To keep you smiling all the year.

The gift of peace that comes from God,

 With prayers to guide each path you trod.

And when your heart has lost it’s song

 The gift of hope to cheer you on. 

Happy Christmas

 Happy 2015.

From

My family to Yours.
