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
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.
May peace and happiness find their way from your heart.
This year I don’t want any material gifts delivered under my tree. I have so many wonderful things in my life- most of all good health and happiness. Could you please send me the things that I am requesting below …….
I would like :
No more lives torn apart,
That wars would NEVER begin….
…. and the wars raging now would cease.
And that time would heal all hearts.
Everyone would have a caring friend,
And RIGHT would always win.
And LOVE would never end.

Thank you Santa in anticipation of a “HOPE FILLED” Christmas for myself and
everybody else on earth.
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.
My family to Yours.
