Happiness is the heavenly light of joy.
Let love, joy, peace, and hope be the guiding lights of your life today, tomorrow, and forever.
So many nights, I stared out at the inky black ocean, believing that if I could only learn how to eat again and keep my hands out of my throat, that would be enough. I prayed hard and desperately to God and the sun and the moon and the ocean and the universe and every shelter dog I’d ever met, as if they were all genies, that I wouldn’t ask for anything more.
But perhaps God isn’t a collection of genies, and perhaps it’s okay to hope for more than relief. To hope big. To hope for Sunny’s limitless capacity to love.
True joy comes from knowing Christ personally and from depending on His strength rather than your own.
Money almost always ends up disappointing.
Buying things to give lasing satisfaction is an illusion. Money can’t buy happiness. The people with the most money are often times the MOST miserable people.
This world can be quite wonderful once you let yourself be a part of it.
With peaks of joy and valleys of heartache, life is a roller coaster ride, the rise and fall of which defines our journey. It is both scary and exciting at the same time.
Dreams are what life is made of and although most things are improbable, nothing is impossible. Be the dreamer of the impossible and you can see probability.
Love is nothing but Joy with the accompanying idea of an external cause (Ethics, part III, proposition 13, scholium).
