“Joy is not in THINGS, it’s in US.”
When are we going to realize that it’s not about accumulating THINGS that will make us happy? Yes, it’s nice to have beautiful things…but it’s not good to worship them. It says in the Bible that the LOVE of money is the ROOT of all evil. We need to love each other, not make Gods out of possessions. We are bombarded daily with advertisements of luxury items and the “promise” of the “good life” if you are able to attain them. The “good life” is NOW and its how much love you express daily..how kind you are to others daily..how patient you are daily..how many times you made someone smile daily…or laugh…or encouraged someone who needed it… and, of course utilizing your talents and contributing to others..through your work WITH LOVE. That, my friends, is why we are here.
