Welcome 2017

Wow. I can't believe I started this blog in 2009 and the last time I wrote was 2011. I really like to write and so I think I will do that here.

With today being Sunday I would like to share something spiritual. “To be able to see the hand of God at work in the world is one (or the most) greatest asset one can have. When the shadows are gathering for life’s darker moments, the person that can still see God’s hand at work, even in unflavorable circumstances, will be the master of any situation life may impose upon him.” Unknown.

In my life I have seen God’s hand guide me but didn’t always recognize it. I have suffered depression and anxiety. I have missed members of my family so much that there is physical pain. There have been times I've disliked my job so much that I've wanted to cry and not go to work. But I'm still here and getting stronger. I believe it is because of a stronger presence in my life.

However, we need to also recognize that the problems that people face will always be there no matter where you are in your life. From a young couple struggling with finances to an empty nester trying to figure out where their place in life. There will be issues around you that you’ll have to face head on.

I have learned that the true secret to happiness lies in recognizing. Recognizing what you have and being grateful. Gratefulness, indeed is what leads to contentment. It’s the genuine secret to a happy life, because with it you see the world in a different light.
