A Year of Happiness

Gift Catalogue PhotosI proclaim 2015 a year of happiness!  I WILL TAKE NOTHING FOR GRANTED!

Happiness breeds MORE happiness.

NO! I am not going to go stick my head in the sand and pretend that everything is fine. People are still going to grind my gears! I still mourn poverty! but here’s what it takes……..

!!!P-A-S-S-I-O-N!!! If you and I could bottle it, we’d be millionaires.

Where does it all come from?

“The word enthusiasm comes from two Greek words. The word en which means “in” and the word theos which is Greek for “God.” To be enthusiastic means to be “in God.” When you get in God, you have enthusiasm deep in your heart.” Rick Warren**

The opposite of enthusiasm is indifference.

“If you have enthusiasm, you should thank God for it. If you do not have it, you should get down on your knees and pray for it.” -Michelle Moore***

Woo Hoo for the privilege of reaching out to anyone you can in 2015; Woo Hoo for luxuries that 1 out of 5 people can’t afford in life………coffee, a car, warm baths, Merrell shoes, nuts, honey, freedom of worship, peppermint and my weakness…… Cape Cod potato chips.

Thank God for the gift of Himself in us! May we use it to glorify Him in all we do in the coming year.home page Image

  1. You are delightful, Miz Melody. It’s a blessing to partner alongside you in Enthusiastic Ministry… praying that others see Jesus in us and join in The Celebration!

    1. Thanks for the affirmation! The power of God that lives within believers is far better than anything this world an give.

    May you take time, when needed, to quiet your soul, silence the noise in your head and heart, and remind yourself of what you really want out of life
