Happiness vs Joy

“Enjoy the journey, enjoy every moment, and quit worrying about winning and losing.”

- Matt Biondi, former Olympic swimming champion

Someone said "there is no way to happiness; happiness is the way!"

More important than happiness is Joy. Happiness is more of a feeling. Joy is from deeper down – it’s an experience. There are cases of people who were extremely sad (not at all happy). They got visions of God and their lives changed after the encounter. They didn’t become happy overnight, but they experienced immediate and everlasting joy that cannot be put into words. May we all experience such joy – with or without getting visions!

And yes…have a nice day!!

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

“People are so worried about what they eat between Christmas and the New Year, but they really should be worried about what they eat between the New Year and Christmas.” - Author Unknown

Last Friday we were between Christmas and New Year. Now we’re back to work. A new chance – or a new chance to create a new opportunity – look at it the way you want!

“We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year's Day.”

Wish you a Happy 365-chapter book!
