HAPPINESS IS UP TO YOU
It is good to find the ordinary things in
life fun. If we can enjoy what we are
doing daily , we carry happiness around
with us and have what we call the
I will start with our family life at home.
There we have our loved ones around us;
our parents, brothers, sisters , spouse
and children . They are the treasure of
our life. Spending time with them together
at home is part of our life.
Next I enjoy my daily meals. We eat well
to be fit and strong , to face the many
challenges in life , the many ups and
downs, its fretfulness, to face them squarely
with positive thinking and a sense of humour.
We also eat healthy meals to keep bad
cholesterol and high blood level at bay.
If you enjoy your work, then there will be
no problem in your life . If you don't , try
to get round it for there are more than
one ways to place fun and work side by side .
If you fail to do that , find out why you
fail and tackle it again after a nights
good rest. If it is not as simple as that,
talk to somebody see if he can help.
It is important to relax our bodies and
mind after a days hard-work. We take a
rest, have meals, chat with our family
then we can screw to the screen for
football, comics and our daily movie .
Some find reading Bible very fulfilling.
During weekend, we go out to do shopping,
sit round the park or go jogging for health .
For us Christians, we go to Novena , Holy
Mass or do church activities to satisfy
our need for spiritual life.
Our earth is beautiful for God created
it so. I always enjoy the sunrise
( I dont always get up early enough
for it, though .) , sunsets, green pastures,
trees and grass, the sea , the birds and flowers.
Take advantage of what nature has to offer.
They are for free !
Our mental state is very important too.
I try to think positive thoughts ;
see the good in people not try to
find faults with them,; make excuses
for our enemies for they like us find
it hard to love their enemies.
I think it is essential to Keep our life clean .
It helps to go to confession if otherwise.
Remember Jesus asks us to forgive others
seven times seventy-two.
above all welcome Jesus into your life for
He wants us to.
If we can enjoy the ordinary things in life,
we own happiness. We dont know what is
happiness until we lose it.
TO THE FOREST
My family and I went off to see the forest
W hen we reached there we saw the foliage
fringed the whole of the forest floor
so we could sit down on the soft grass for a rest .
We saw the sun right above us
through the leafy sky .
Birds darted here and there.
Small animals appeared gingerly and
then disappeared again just as suddenly ,
Big animals loomed up from nowhere
and frightened us just a little bit .
Then they too went on their way peacefully .
The music of great nature filled the forest
We listened with awe to
the chirping of the birds
the concert of the different types of insects .
From afar we even heard the cry of the wolves ,
the roar of lions and the squeaking of the squirrels
And the winds gently caressed our faces.
We washed our faces and hands from a sparkling
stream nearby before we ate our food .
Here is a paradise of the animals
and of the insects and of the trees
and of the plants.
The forest is big and so the animals
all dwell peacefully as God wants them to .
They have no worries for food;
like the lilies of the field
and birds of the air.
They all obey the law of nature
survival of the fittest ....
Here we escaped into the wilderness
just for some moments of our lives
we had had our fill of the nature .
Then back we bounded for the civilisation !
Our four wheels temporary shattered
the silence of the forest.
