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

Be Happy

Every morning I read a page out of a little devotional book, Starting Your Day Right by Joyce Meyer.

This days devotional really spoke to me and I'd like to share it with you this Sunday. It is why I truly have joy in my life. No not every day is happy but you can find something to be joyful about each day and if something bad does come along God will be there to help you through it. :-)


Colossians 3:23 & 24
And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance; for you serve the Lord Christ.

Jesus died so that you can enjoy abundant life, not just the days you are off work or on vacation or when you get to go shopping or golfing --- but every day of your life.

He wants you to enjoy going to the grocery store. He wants you to enjoy driving the kids to school. He wants you to enjoy paying the bills. He wants you to enjoy cleaning the house or mowing the yard.

You can enjoy life if you determine to do so. Say, "I'm going to enjoy every aspect of my life, because Jesus died so that I could have joy unspeakable and full of glory."

Have a joyful day today and every day. God wants you to. :-)
Happyone :-)

to all you Dads!!!


  1. (Okay, I'll be sure to share this with John after he is home from church. The car broke down in the town square and he had to leave it behind and walk home to fetch the truck. He'll deal with the car this afternoon, which doesn't seem like a fun way to spend Father's Day.)

    In the meantime, I'm baking him a rhubarb custard pie...perhaps it'll compensate. Happy Father's Day to Ken!

  2. I certainly needed to be reminded to be joyful, especially when going to the grocery store, which is not my favorite place!

    I am currently reading Joyce Meyer's "Battlefield of the Mind". It is a fantastic book!!

  3. Thanks for sharing this wonderful devotional with us. It contains a valuable lesson we need to keep in mind.
