    What makes you the happiest?

    You know that happiness that brings real joy how do you find it? Doing something for someone else? Having something done for you?

    There is no greater joy

    than loving God in prayer

    There are no riches more rewarding

    than the eternal treasures you'll receive

    Prayer brings powerful help into your life

    Prayer changes circumstances

    What a wonderful privilege we have

    to give our heart to our Father in prayer.

    Singing and playing the guitar, piano, or the harmonica.  Riding horseback.

    Hearing my grandchildren laugh.  We might be playing a game and I will say something in a funny voice and they just take off laughing and I experience such joy in those moments.

    Hearing my daughter playing with a friend. Seeing her confidence grown makes me incredibly happy.
    I love doing things for other people. I love surprising the people I care about with a short email letting them know I care.

    In my opinion, what makes a person the happiest is what they desire within; my happiest times are when I'm with my family and when I take time out to pray. Happiest are usually when you're with someone you love or doing something that brings you satisfaction, peace, self-confidence and self-esteem and by combining all of these a person can find the happiest moments in life.

    As far as serving others, I find a lot of joy in serving the downtrodden.  However, in general, what makes me so happy is to hear a child laugh.

    I'm at my happiest, when I get plently of support, love and laughter. Also a relaxing walk in the park, makes me feel this world isn't that bad after all :)relaxed and happy

    I am happiest when I am most happy in Jesus Christ...it doesn't matter then what anyone is doing for me, or what is happening to me. But my focus is often off somewhere else, and then I worry or get upset or get self-absorbed and selfish. Sadness.

      though, I would like to add, I think I am happiest when my husband and children are happy, but this happiness isn't as deep and soul-fulfilling.

    Knowing the meaning of love.  To be completely in love and to know that, that special love, is reciprocated. Seeing others glow with happiness also makes me really happy.
