Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself;
I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today.
I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet.
I have just one day, today, and I’m going to be happy in it.
~Groucho Marx

This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.
Psalm 118:24

No Strings Attached

There is nothing free in life, they say,
But we know differently today.
God's gift is absolutely free,
Abundant grace for you and me.

There is no fine print mentioned here,
No background check that we must clear,
No strings attached to pull us in,
No stated limit on our sin.

We cannot earn this gift divine;
Christ gave his life while saving mine.
The price was paid by God's own Son
Forgiveness granted!
We have won!
~ Dolores Fruth

John 3:16
For God so loved the world,
that He gave His only begotten Son,
that whoever believes in Him
should not perish but have eternal life.

Have a wonderful Sunday.
Happyone :-)


  1. I had not read this poem before. It's both true and beautiful. Thank you for sharing it with us.

  2. LOVE the poem and that is my favorite verse of all time!

  3. Ahhh, ain't it the truth. Something for nothing...sin traded for eternal life...this Ozarks farm chick knows a good deal when she sees one, and this is the ultimate bargain. I'm so glad I popped in.

    Ya'll have a wonderfully blessed day from the happy hills and hollers of the Missouri Ponderosa!!!
