"Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace, and gratitude."Denis Waitley

Do you live every minute with love, grace and gratitude?

Ummm, me either...but, I have found the secret to happiness...want to know my little secret (come on just humor me)

My secret to happiness is to live a life without constantly worrying about what tomorrow will bring.

Matthew 6:34 says, ""So do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

It's really true, each day we start a new will have a few bumps along the road, some runny noses, a sore tooth, a lost toy, burnt toast, a leaky faucet, a cranky toddler, a flat tire, whatever the case may be, each day has some troubles, but we can look to God each morning anew.  Start our day in His hands, focused on Him, counting our many blessings, and opening up our hands and say, "Lord, today is your day, what can I do to bring glory to you?"  We can tell God what our fears are, we can share our hearts, we can tell him our concerns, but we do not have to live a life of fear, worry, or dread!

Remember we can live each minute with love, grace, and gratitude.  We can extend love, we can share grace, we can be thankful for what we have, and we DO NOT have to let our circumstances dictate our behaviors or attitudes or outlook on life.

This week I am determined not to worry!  I want to start my day out in prayer to God.  I want to show the people I come in contact with grace and love (even if they don't deserve it!) and I want to live a life of gratitude!

The secret to happiness is living every minute with your hands open and facing upwards to heaven.  It's showing love, being thankful, and giving others grace, hey listen, I need a lot of grace, don't you?  i need a lot of love, don't you?

I have a life given to me to live to the fullest and I won't let any circumstance or person bring me down!
