“Ok, I keep getting opportunities to say this quote I made up myself so I’m going to share it again on FB so you can say it too:“Children are like gardens, if you tend to them they tend to give you beautiful gifts in return.” -MFB
You can reverse children and gardens or use the word “friends” to replace either one and its still true.I guess I need to find a great picture I took of children playing in a garden and put that quote on it and repost it …unless YOUR motivated, feel free…Hey, let’s have a contest! See who can make the coolest version of a quote photo and lets go viral with it!”

The Strength of Temptation and a Way Out – C. S. Lewis Quote

Standard

“No man knows how bad he is till he has tried very hard to be good… Only those who try to resist temptation know how strong it is."
- C.S. Lewis

“No man knows how bad he is till he has tried very hard to be good… Only those who try to resist temptation know how strong it is.”
C.S. Lewis

The good news is this, the Bible is very clear that we are all equipped to handle temptation. Though it is strong, we are stronger. God is faithful and will help us find a way out if we’re willing to follow it.

1 Corinthians 10:13-14 (NIV) – No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.

The True Secret of Happiness in our Daily Life

Standard

“The true secret of happiness lies in the taking a genuine interest in all the details of daily life.” 

~ William Morris

"The true secret of happiness lies in the taking a genuine interest in all the details of daily life."  ~ William MorrisI LOVE this quote. I have to say that William Morris is a person who has influenced the way I live, creatively. He supported the arts, and liked to have beautiful things around him. It was his believe that things didn’t have to be merely functional, but interesting to look at and interact with as well.  A serving spoon can be a work of art~! 

Beyond that, we can look up, look around, and find beauty all around us. Compare the color of a tree trunk to the sky behind it. Take a closer look at the inside of a flower. There are often sparkly stones inside of concrete. A drop of water can contain a whole miniature world~! When light shines through leaves, they look like stained glass. What an amazing world we live in~! It is important to our health to observe the world around us using as many of our senses as we can.

BE INSPIRED~!

Look up, Look around…

Be Happier in your Daily Life~!

What do you see that is amazing in what many think of as the ordinary world? Teach us to see something new in our surroundings. Please leave comments~!

Maybe you CAN buy happiness… or get it for FREE~!

Standard

You can't buy happiness. you can buy icecream

1- You can’t buy happiness, but you can buy icecream. And that’s kind of the same thing.

I liked this poster immediately when I saw it. I’ll confess I’ve only had ONE ice cream sundae in the last decade. I didn’t finish it. It was actually too sweet for me, but I sure had fun putting a serious dent in it. People say that you can’t buy happiness. I’m not sure if that is true. You can add your opinions in the comments section~! I have spent money on things in the past that I thought would make me happy, and I’ve been wrong. I’ve also bought things that have brought me joy.  By the way, this poster is for sale on Etsy.com (an online craft show), at the Gayana Shop. These are all posters from the Gayana shop, and the artist has over 200 other posters to check out if you’ve enjoyed these. Oh, I also noticed that these ship from Latvia. That’s cool~!
