Chapter 12, Page 15, Book 19

We get Happiness through the love of others and a sense of community.  

Will Bowen

December 15th - love and happiness

Love and happiness are complementary, you cannot have one without the other and you get the best of them together.  

Author Unknown

We all want to be happy and it’s  a lovely thing to wish for.  There’s nothing more fulfilling than living a happy life with people you love. We have to make a choice every day to care about others and to care about them more than you care about yourself. Because this is what love is.  

To truly love another person will likely be the most difficult and rewarding thing you will ever do .Love is truly seeing and caring about another person .  It’s wanting to be there for someone, to support them and help them grow.  

Because when every thing in life is transient, love becomes the only thing that endures.  A life without love, without the love of others, without loving others, will always feel empty. When you don’t choose love, you choose fear.

At the end of the day all we have is love.  All we have is each other.  To miss this, to not realize it and act on it is to miss the fullness, the richness of your existence

To have never loved is simply to have never lived.  Tell people that you love them.  Love yourself and let people love you.  A life well lived is about all we can ever ask for.

Love and happiness are the most conscious choices most of us have to make throughout our lives

That is not to say we should depend on others for our happiness, but love and happiness do go together.

Great pictures! You know, sometimes your message happens to resonate more so than what I might have just heard in church.
