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. 

Soul Searching

Published September 5, 2013 by Healthy Living with nature

No Time, No Time….

 

I knelt to pray, but not for long.

 I had too much to do.

 I had to hurry and get to work, 

For bills would soon be due.

So I knelt and said a hurried prayer

 And jumped up off my knees. 

My Christian duty was now done.

 My soul could rest at ease….

All day long I had no time 

To spread a word of cheer.

 No time to speak of God to friends.

 They’d laugh at me I fear.


No time! No time! TOO MUCH TO DO!

 That was my constant cry, 

No time to give to souls in need

But…. at last the time to die.

 I went before the Lord,

 I came, I stood, with downcast eyes.

For, in His hands God held a book,

 It was the book of life.

God looked into His book and said:

“Your name I could not find.

I was going to write it down….

 But, I never found the time.”
