"The best way to prepare for life is to begin to live." ~Elbert Hubbard

What is the profit in the life we are given
If it is not fully and completely liven
We must search our hearts with great persistence
We must search for the reason for our very existence
Then we must work toward fulfillment of our goals
One fulfillment should be to love the Lord with heart and soul
Look upon each day as a new and exciting adventure
Be not afraid to step out on faith with each new venture
Look upon the rain as “liquid sunshine”
See both blue skies and gray as part of Gods design
Look for the humor in each situation
Make the most of those times of great exultation
If life is not lived to its fullest it is a life lived in vain
Only through joy is true happiness attained
The joy built upon faith in God and his son
This is the path upon which true happiness is won
See Adventures of the Angels

God gives us each the choice - free will. What we then do with that can not be thrown back in his face. I keep saying this in every review i give - heal the world by healing it's children. A smile, a hug, a word of praise, a pat on the back, a thumbs up, time from our life to show up to a 45 min. school play, throw a hoop or so on a walk by.It's the small things we do in this life that are paid forward. Loved this piece, you hit the happiness on the head.

Much food for thought here, Lew. Life is precious...especially when we stop and think where we want to spend the rest of it once we vacate our earthly shells. Indeed, a thought-provoking write!

God bless,
