Joy in Life

“Joy is what we are,not what we must get.Joy is the realization that all we want or need in life has been etched into our souls.Joy helps us see not what we are “going through,” but what we are “growing to”-a greater sense of understanding,accomplishment,and enlightenment.Joy reveals to us the calm at the end of the storm,the peace that surpasses the momentary happiness of pleasure. If we keep our minds centered on joy,joy becomes a state of mind.”-Iyanla Vanzant

Sweetness in life

“Take one cup of love,two cups of loyalty,three cups of forgiveness,four quarts of faith and one barrel of laughter.Take love and loyalty and mix them thoroughly with faith;blend with tenderness,kindness and understanding.Add friendship and hope.Sprinkle abundantly with laughter.Bake it with sunshine. Wrap it regularly with lots of hugs.Serve generous helpings daily.”- Zig Ziglar
