Chapter 7, Page 26, Book 19

May joy and peace surround you.
Contentment latch your door,
And happiness be with you now.
And bless you ever more.

Irish Blessing

July 26th - joy and peace go hand in hand

Life is short and it is up to you to make it sweet.

Sara Louise Delany

Peace is satisfaction with life.  It’s living with contentment.  Joy brings peace to our life because we’re prepared to see what is good in others and the world .

Our peace, joy, contentment, fulfillment and over all happiness depend on the choices we make.  The life we have today is a gift we’ve been given.  It’s the only one we have and the only life we’re going to get.  So it’s up to each of us to choose to love the life we’re given.

When you truly love your life, you can’t help but be happier and experience a greater sense of fulfillment, meaning and purpose .

I have found that if you love life, life will love you back.

That is true that joy and peace go hand in hand. Without contentment, we can be miserable in our days. With contentment, we can enjoy the wonderful lives we have been given.

At times like today, I telegraph to Sherry what your blog is by reading something from it. Today I could not resist reading one of your graphics. "Life is the sum of all your Choices".....................
Then we talked about the good and bad choices. As long as the positives out weigh the negatives, WE STAY on the POSITIVE side of the equation.
Good one lady,
Sherry & jack

I just love, love, love your sayings in the boxes today. I never thought about it - but you are right - at the end of your life - it is the sum of your choices. Us oldies but goodies know this. Sandie

I do believe joy and peace go hand in hand. I don't think you can have one without the other. It is always nice to come here and get your 'take' on things. xo Diana
