Happiness Is..


Those silly little faces you see on children...The warm glow of the sunlight on their soft and fragile skin..

The love shared between Father and Son, the unbreakable bond they form and the privilege as a Mother and Wife to watch it. Happiness just is.

Happiness is forgiveness. Forgiveness is a big thing I'm dealing with and learning lately. If we don't forgive our fellow brethren how is God supposed to forgive us when we ask? He can't because we don't practice humbling ourselves to see other people's views or differences. I have an outlook on life that I am gonna be happy everyday, but I can't be happy with a heart full of hate. It eats us alive like a monster. So does envy and jealousy. So my proclamation is to start being a more forgiving and more understanding me, because God has mercy and forgives our sins and transgressions. "Our Father who art in Heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy Kingdom come, thy will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread and forgive our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. Lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, the power and the glory, Forever, Amen." That is happiness. God's mercy.
