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.

Working with the Weaver

Weaving Wonders

 

The Weaver

My life is but a weaving between my Lord and me;

I cannot choose the colours but He works on steadily.

Often times He weaves in sorrow and I in foolish pride

Forget He see the upper, and I the underside.

Nor till the loom is silent and the shuttles cease to to fly,

Does God unroll the canvas and explain the reason why.

The dark threads are as needful as the weaver’s skilful hands,

 As the threads of gold and silver on the pattern He has planned.

He knows. He loves. He cares– Nothing the truth can dim

He gives the very best to those, who leave the choice with Him.
