The Art Of Staying Happy

Let me start this by saying I am NOT a religious person, but I am very spiritual. I BELIEVE in God and all of his glory. I BELIEVE that he speaks to our hearts. So, with saying that I begin. ☺

I've never been a huge bible reader (for a lack of comprehending the language), but while watching Joyce Meyer yesterday something urged me to get a bible (one that I could comprehend). I immediately tell hubby I MUST do this and we go. We find a nice Christian Family Bookstore and within five minutes I see a bible with the sub title "Amplified Version" and the commentary notes were written by none other than..Wait For It....Wait For It... Joyce Meyer!! I damn near fell over, but KNEW this was the bible for me!

I get home and start reading this bible and for the first time in my life I comprehended every word I uttered!! It was an amazing feeling and I'm STILL overjoyed about it!

So, in honor of cherishing my bliss I'd like to tell you about something that I find to be simply Bliss filled. My friend Michael Chase, founder of The Kindness Center was praying for help for his holiday give. Michael and his kindness team go out into the streets and commit Random Acts of Kindness to any and everyone. He was praying for help to be able to bring kindness to those who are less fortunate (especially during the holiday season).

I emailed Michael asking him if he'd be willing to help us spread our goody bags around his town. He writes me back saying how he was praying for help and then I showed up. *Now, I have to say I BELIEVE that was God's doing.* So, before hubby and I headed for the bookstore we headed to the post office to mail Michael a huge package!

I am a STRONG believer that whatever good and positive you put out there WILL come back to you. I also believe that we meet certain people for a very good reason. My reason for meeting Michael? So that we may join together and do GOD's work. Doing HIS work makes me utterly and completely Happy. ♥

Even in trying times I SEE His goodness, HIS Kindness....His Bliss ☺
I Choose It...I Choose Bliss♥

Peace & Uplifting,
