Starting back up again…

1. A song:

Are you happy??

2. Quote because I love them:

Everything I think, say and do flows from my heart and is my responsibility. No one can make me think, say or do anything. They can only present what they think, say and do. In that moment I have the choice to believe it or not, to join them or not. When I am having a bad day, it is not others but myself who has agreed with the perception of my day. So I have to go deal with myself if I want joy to return to me. If not …well then I will go on being unhappy. If I don’t GET THIS …I will blame everyone for my problems. God has already given me everything I need for joy to be lived in this life. I just have to agree with Him.

-Starla Smith

Proverbs 4:23 Be careful how you think; your life is shaped by your thoughts.
Matt 15:11 You are not defiled by what you eat; you are defiled by what you say and do. “
