The secret

One day, one friend asked another,
‘ How is it that you are always so happy?
You have so much energy,
And you never seem to get down.. ‘

How are you so happy?

With her eyes smiling, she said,
‘ I know the Secret! ‘
‘ What secret is that? ‘

To which she replied,
I’ll tell you all about it,
But you have to promise to
Share the Secret with others. ‘

The Secret

‘ The Secret is this:
I have learned there is little I can do
In my life that will make me truly happy
I must depend on God to make
Me happy and to meet my needs.
When a need arises in my life,
I have to trust God to supply,
According to HIS riches.

Happiness

I have learned most of the time
I don ‘ t need half of what I think I do.
He has never let me down.
Since I learned that ‘ Secret ‘ , I am happy.’

The questioner’ s first thought was,
‘ That’ s too simple! ‘
But upon reflecting over her own life

Happy

She recalled how she thought a bigger house
Would make her happy, but it didn’t!
She thought a better paying job
Would make her happy, but it hadn’t.

True Happiness

When did she realize her greatest happiness?
Sitting on the floor with her grandchildren,
Playing games, eating pizza or reading a story,
A simple gift from God.
