Choosing Happiness
















"Day and night I will stick with GOD; I've got a good thing going and I'm not letting go. I'm happy from the inside out, and from the outside in, I'm firmly formed. " Psalm 16:8-9 The Message

"I have set the Lord continually before me; Because HE is at my right hand, I will not be shaken. Therefore, my heart is glad, and my glory rejoices; my flesh will also dwell securely." Psalm 16:8-9 NAS The Message

Today, I choose happiness. I choose to rejoice in the life GOD has chosen for me! What about you?

Choosing happiness,

Andrea

*I will be away from the computer for a few days. I pray each of you will have a beautifully blessed weekend!

As I read this post I was thinking of the song, "Falling In Love With Jesus". That song always reminds me of why I am happy even in very troubling circumstances.

I think myself happy...love to you all.

Choosing Happiness is a great way to get by the hard days that life brings us. Keeping strong in our faith and belief in GOD is a perfect way to get through the hardships he throws at us since he will always provide us with words and the strength to get by.

we are so blessed to be able to choose...choose what we think, say and how we feel and react to the events in our lives.
Not always easy but what a gift.

"Do NOT worry about tomorrow...today has enough worry of it's own! Enjoy the rest of your pregnancy. Go to your birthing classes and learn how to breath properly, focus, etc. Once they lay your little bundle in your arms...all will be awesome!
Hugs, andrea"

I like your blog! We raise a 'service animal', a Katrina survivor Rottweiler named Deuce who has been a blessing to us. I also write a Christian based Blog: TOM'S JOURNAL, but here is a special site to check out: biblefortoday.org
featuring the DEFINED KJV Bible. Wow!
