Good Day, Beautiful People!

Life is difficult, but those difficulties, when we face them squarely, are often the secret keys to growth and joy. -Edward Grinnan

One of my Goals for 2016 is to actively seek joy and happiness even when I face difficulties and challenges along the way. Hope and believe for many many many good days ahead. Joy and happiness seems an easy task and yet many fail to achieve that. 
My brothers and sisters, you will face all kinds of trouble. When you do, think of it as pure joy. Your faith will be put to the test. You know that when that happens it will produce in you the strength to continue. – James1:2-3 (NIVR)

Consider it a sheer gift, friends, when tests and challenges come at you from all sides. You know that under pressure, your faith-life is forced into the open and shows its true colors. – James1:2-3 (MSG)

  

Most of us know the meaning of joy and happiness so the reason I wrote definition is purely to revisit and ponder upon the words. As well as for the benefit of others who sadly never able to find joy and happiness yet.

Joy is a state of mind and an orientation of the heart. It is a settled state of contentment, confidence and hope. It is something or someone that provides a source of happiness. – Theopedia 

Webster’s dictionary definition: 1) to experience great pleasure or delight : REJOICE, 2) the emotion evoked by well-being, success, or good fortune or by the prospect of possessing what one desires: DELIGHT. 

Hebrew dictionary definition: 8057. simchah, sim-khaw’; from H8056 blithesomeness or glee, (religious or festival):– X exceeding (-ly), gladness, joy (-fulness), mirth, pleasure, rejoice (-ing). 

Greek dictionary definition: 5479. chara, khar-ah’; from G5463; cheerfulness, i.e., calm delight:–gladness, X greatly, (X be exceeding) joy (-ful, -fully, -fulness, -ous).

 Joy depends the internal factors, something deep within while Happiness depends on external factors. 

Definition of Happiness is a state of well-being characterized by emotions ranging from contentment to intense joy sense of well-being, joy, or contentment. Happiness is that feeling that comes over you when you know life is good and you can’t help but smile. It’s the opposite of sadness. When people are successful, or safe, or lucky, they feel happiness. The “pursuit of happiness” is something this country is based on, and different people feel happiness for different reasons. Whenever doing something causes happiness, people usually want to do more of it. No one ever complained about feeling too much happiness. -Vocabulary.com
  

You may think all these are so cliche. But at the end of the day, week, month, year and life, you still have to face you in the mirror and honestly ask yourself what you really really want short term and long term. You owe it to yourself to find real happiness because you are worth it. Happiness is a form of courage. When you express YES to happiness means learning to say NO to  the things and people that stress you out.  Choose to respect yourself enough to walk away from anything that no longer serve you, grow you or make you HAPPY. The wise Mandy Hale affirmed that “Happiness starts with you. Not with your relationship, your friends or your job. But with you.” 

   

  
This is a research done by Harvard lessons from the longest study on Happiness that may give you some insight.

   
    
 

  

   
    
 

Hope this help someone today. As for me you know what I am going to pursue.

Happy Birthday Jesus! Love Santa Baby xoxo

  
Good Day, Beautiful People!

I don’t know who is the original writer of this beautiful message but thank you. I love it! Sharing this with my friends here.

My dear precious Jesus, I did not mean to take your place,

I only bring toys and things and you bring love and grace.

People give me lists of wishes and hope that they came true;

But you hear prayers of the heart and promise your will to do.

Children try to be good and not to cry when I am coming to town;

But you love them unconditionally and that love will abound.

I leave only a bag of toys and temporary joy for a season;

But you leave a heart of love, full of purpose and reasons.

I have a lot of believers and what one might call fame;

But I never healed the blind or tried to help the lame.

I have rosy cheeks and a voice full of laughter;

But no nail—scarred hands or a promise of the hereafter.

You may find several of me in town or at a mall;

But there is only one omnipotent you, to answer a sinner’s call.

And so, my dear precious Jesus, I kneel here to pray;

To worship and adore you on this, your holy birthday.

  


My prayer for you:

 

My Blessings for you:
May the miracle of Christmas fill your heart with joy and peace. & The light of the Christmas star to you – The warmth of home and hearth to you – The cheer and good will of friends to you – The hope of a childlike heart to you – The joy of a thousand angels to you – The love of the Son and God’s peace to you. With Christmas love and New Year’s wishes! 

My gift to you. Enjoy my fav Christmas Song:

My favourite live musical to you! Enjoy!

Peak or Pit still Thankful 

  

Good Day, Beautiful People.

“Many times the deepest disappointments yield the most beautiful fruit in our lives.

In the later years of life, George lost all his money, his health faded, his right side became paralyzed and his creditors were threatening him with imprisonment for not paying his debts. He had no place to go, no one to really help him, but God. Placing all his trust in God alone, George decided to go into seclusion and spend time in meditation and prayer. Out of this time alone with God he was changed, His eyes opened and he saw such glory. Out of his difficulty he composed perhaps one of the greatest works of music ever…THE MESSIAH. His name – George Frederick Handel.

Don’t give up, your music will return and your life will come into that perfect place God has for you. What God does in secret will bless many openly.” – Passion Translation sharing. 

Christmas is drawing near. We are all so busy with so many festival activities and parties around this time of the year.  I hope in our busyness, we don’t forget the real meaning and Spirit of Christmas. 

Every year, I host a business & working sisters thanksgiving and Christmas party.  I will encourage them to share something they are thankful for the year.

Like my pastor claimed in the beginning of 2015 “You crown the year with Your goodness.” –Ps 65:11.  

Regardless 2015 is your peak or pit, you’re breathing and moving you have something to be thankful for. Be like the one out of ten that Jesus healed, came back and thank Him! Jesus asked, “Were not all ten cleansed? Where are the other nine?  Has no one returned to give praise to God except this foreigner?” Then he said to him, “Rise and go; your faith has made you well.” – Lk17:17-19  Let’s us give honour and appreciation when honour is due. “Do you owe respect? Then give it. Do you owe honour? Then show it.”- Rom13:7

Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name. Ps100:4

Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever. 1Chron16:34 

Some of the sisters are thankful for a good year. Others are thankful that they are still here and standing even though it is a challenging & dramatic year! We are all grateful that God is with us in the pit and peak! There are plenty of laughter and a few teary eyes. This year each one receive a scented candle. The symbolic reason of a candlelight is a reminder they are the light in the world of darkness. So remember to shine for Jesus.

“I hear His whisper… “VICTORY!”

You are going to make it. You will arise in victory, no matter how it may look to you at this moment. Is it not true that every impossibility yields to My power? All I am will be placed between you and your enemies. You will arise as the mighty one that I have created you to be! Nothing will be able to overcome you, for faith will grow and your love will intensify toward Me. 

Never doubt My power, My grace, My surprising breakthrough on your behalf. Before this week is over you will see My glory shine through the clouds of darkness. You will see your enemies shrink back before you as you move out with My Name and My victory. Watch what I will do before this year is over. Your will jump out into 2016 with the songs of victory!” – Passion Translation

Rest [MF]

Good Day, Beautiful People!
Nothing is permanent in this world. The only constant things are God’s Love and changes.
Those of us who travel on this life journey for awhile bound to experience good and bad seasons. Some days in life seem more challenging than other days. You just need to take it as it comes. One day at a time. Even your feeling right now is temporary. So don’t let your feeling run your life. Enjoy the the good with the bad. Be thankful for the good times and challenging times. We learn valuable lesson during challenging time. We can choose to curl up like a ball and hide or choose to put on your spiritual armor, pick up your spiritual weapon and fight. Let your village of people who love you know to give you the support you need.
Adopt a good attitude, positive thinking and good opinion of God. Most brave people I encounter overcome challenging storms through this way has amazing great outcome. You can experience joy right here in the midst of real and even raw life.

Joy is neither the absence of pain,
nor the presence of denial.
It is discovered when you and I
Allows our minds and spirits to be
Saturated with the truth that
God is near us,
With the miracle that He walks beside us. – Alicia Britt Chole

If you have to fight the battle, fight courageously.
If you have to walk through it, walk boldly.
If you have to stand on guard, stand equipped.
If you have to sit and watch, sit patiently.
If you have to rest at a standstill, rest peacefully.
-Angela S Chua

Below is another touching poem REST from my creative mate, Melinda Fletcher.
My soul will rest in You alone
My soul will rest in You alone
In the shadow of your wings
It’s there you will hear me sing
My soul will rest in You alone

My heart will trust in you alone
My heart will trust in you alone
Nothing will I fear
as long as you are near
My God I will trust in you alone

My hope is in Your word alone
My hope is in Your word alone
My hiding place and shield
In your presence where I’m healed
My hope is in Your word alone

Calvary

Song: Calvary

The Savior alone
Carried the cross
For all of my debts
He paid the cost

Salvation complete
Now forever I’m free

[*]
CALVARY
Covers it all
CALVARY
covers it all

My sin And shame
Don’t count anymore
All praise to THE ONE
Who has ransomed my soul

CALVARY
Covers it all

No power on earth
Not even the grave
Can separate us
From mercy and grace

He is faithful to save
Oh His blood never fails

Back to *

No one But Jesus
Can make us pure
Like snow
We stand in your freedom

Back to * [2x]

All praise to THE ONE
Who has ransomed my soul
CALVARY
Covers it all

Only Your Love

20140415-020627.jpg
Good Day, Beautiful People!
One of my generous and amazing mate, Yvonne, just blessed my heart with this beautiful gift.
Enjoying this Majestic album especially this song. It makes me ponder upon Jesus sacrifice Himself so we can be united with Abba Dad, God in Heaven.
It is considered the holiest time of the year! Most believers observe this Holy Week.
Easter brings us new hope, new life and new joy. In the northern countries is also a celebration of beautiful spring time. In the southern countries is a celebration of harvest time and getting ready for winter.
It does not matter if you are believer or not. His deep love for you is still the same. God gives us the freedom and free will to choose to love him back.

Your love is strong and mighty
It’s jealousy unyielding
It burns for me like a fire untamed

Your love is all consuming
You never stop pursuing
Nothing I could face could take it away

Oh, oh, oh Your love
Oh, oh, oh

Your love is like no other
Nothing else satisfies
It flows through the deepest waters
It rests on the mountains high
Your love is overwhelming
Brought me to life again
Your love, it will last forever
In You there’ll be no end
Only Your love
Only Your love
Only Your love

Nothing can separate us
Many trials cannot hide Your love
No sorrow could wash it away

How deep
How wide
How long
How high
