    Are you truly happy?

    If you feel truly happy, what do you believe makes you happy? If not, what do you think keeps you from being happy?

    No, not at this time.  It is sad because I have wonderful family, a roof over my head, all the things I need - but this past year chronic pain has found a home with me and it is very difficult to adjust to.

      There is healing and freedom from pain. That FREEDOM is one of the reasons Jesus [Yeshua in Hebrew, His language] came, gave His body to be torn to pieces. By His stripes we were healed. I will pray for you to be freed of the pain.

      As a Christian, I find that very comforting, thank you.

    I am generally happy.  I think in part, I've been blessed with that disposition.  I have a wonderful husband, a precious 12 year old, a roof over my head, food on the table, and because I cook with food, it's healthy and not expensive.

    While I don't have the means to pay for what I'd like, I have enough for what I need.  I have some terrible pains that occasionally get the best of me, but, I persevere.  So, while no, I don't enjoy my condition, because I push for tomorrow, it's a sense of accomplishment that I make it day to day.

      We so do not have to accept either sickness or just enough! There are untold unclaimed blessings prepared for us before we were sent into this world. It is written, The Creator of all gives us good things to enjoy.

      Thank you, Shalah!  I've been to 13 doctors & primary care givers.  5 chiropractors.  4 physical therapists.  Because I don't have money, I can't afford acupuncture.  But I finally now have a doctor who may work with me.

      Tomorrow is another day.

    I am so aboungingly blessed with everything I need and on my way to receiving great wealth to begin in small and very big ways to restore the earth to its original state of glorious beauty! I am filled with joy that doesn't depend on circumstance, but springs up from a well of thanksgiving for my redemption.
