      What a great collection of happiness you have here Faith Reaper!

      True to your name, I see that you Reap the happiness that God has placed here upon our beloved Earth.

      Too many of us are engrossed in the battle for money, as if 'money' IS happiness, but the truth is 'happiness' is happiness and no amount of money will bring happiness if we are blind to the infinite opportunities for happiness wherever we look.

      Sadly, those who take pleasure in something as 'apparently' unimportant as a simple cloud in the sky are the minority, however, I'm happy to say that I'm one of those few! (Few only in comparison to the population of the earth)

      I wonder, if we took away money. If we found a way for humanity to live without money, in a way that would not cause a catastrophic collapse ... would people finally begin to appreciate and partake of the unending happiness that this world is steeped in?

      I think so...

      A great hub, Awesome and up!

      Nice to be ya friend.

      Peace

      Richawriter - Wow, I am so happy you are my friend too! I appreciate the great comments to glorify our God and His creation. Yes, the LOVE of money is truly the root of all evil, not having it, but LOVING it is for sure. I am so glad to meet someone who enjoys the simple pleasures in life, which happen to be the most important. I've heard stories of great musicians who have millions upon millions, and have stated they are not happy, and they have everything at their fingertips that the world has to offer, and that is the key, the world and its things cannot fill that empty whole in our heart, that can only be filled by the love of Christ. God bless you. In His Love, Faith Reaper

      Mike Pugh 4 years ago from New York City

      I hit that thumbs up sign there way up high, because you've definitely scored with me here faith, and in so many ways I don't really know how to thanks you LOL.

      Wow! your mind is just buzzing with radiant goodness, and positive vibes you remind me of me, many years back when all I could think of is the beauty and utter magnificence of this awesome world we live in.

      You have encompassed a great deal of good deeds to be done, and many of them I do quite often for sure, because I know that when we are good to our fellow humans, the reward comes back ten fold, plus its part of my inner as well as outer nature to be good, I was born that way!

      Oh and I could never look a person in the face who needed and deny them of something I have plenty of, now that's just being totally cruddy & cruel and I will never ever be that way "No way Jose" LOL. I gain a great deal of pleasure in giving freely, and god blesses me each day with another breath to live, and that's all I could expect to receive in return if anything at all.

      My truest happiness in life stems from the breaths I take, I meditate using it, as well as continue on living even more vibrant and happier knowing I am still alive.

      I will prepare a hub I was planning on writing, and it will go along the lines of that last sentence there. I'll even mention your hub Faith, because your far too motivating, and super filled with energetic happiness not to. Awesome stuff!

      What beautiful thoughts to keep us living in the moment. As we know, we have only today so we must make the most out of it. ("For tonight our souls may be required of us.") Your statement, "Really take time to actually smell a rose!" reminded me so much of my Dad who always said that to end every conversation we had. All your insightful advice comes right from the commandments and is truly valuable. Loved this. Pinned your image of the Wooden walkway in the rain. Sweetness to you today and every day. Peg

      A beautiful reminder of what we have to do every second of the day. We never know what could happen tomorrow and we should enjoy every second. Thank you for sharing this.

      Hi Vellur,

      So happy to see you stopping by to read! I'm glad you found this one, as I now have a chance to reread it for myself and be mindful to put these things into practice for sure.

      Yes, not one is guaranteed a tomorrow and if we knew it was truly our last day here on this Earth, how would we choose to live our last day ...a lot to ponder.

      I appreciate the share.

      God bless you.
