I commend the enjoyment of life, because nothing is better for a man under the sun than to eat and drink and be glad, Then joy will accompany him in his work all the days of life God has given him under the sun
Ecclesiastes 8 -15
I believe that God intended life to be enjoyable for all peoples, of all countries. To be able to enj0y being with friends or family, or in dealing with strangers, be of good cheer because that is what God intended when he created the World.
Be thankful for what you have, and do not worry over what you do not have, because if you have God, y0u have the greatest, most infinite love possible raining down on you from God above. And God is always with you; Jesus Christ is always with you; The Holy Spirit is always with you, so celebrate that you have rare jewels; things that some people fail to see or exercise in their private lives.
If you have God in your life, you are blessed.
If you have family and enjoy being with them, you are blessed.
If y0u have one friend or several, you are blessed.
If you enjoy your work, you are blessed.
If you have a roof over your head, you are blessed.
If you have food to eat, you are blessed.
If you practice prayer as a daily part of your life, you are blessed.
If you have a church to attend, large or small, you are blessed.
I'm sure that if you tried, you could think of several things to add to this list. But as scripture says, commend the joy of life because of God's Blessings and Graces, and it will flow with you every day of your life, and I'm hoping you will, because I believe in the "trickle down effect". That means, if you're short with people or hateful, you will receive the same in kind and you are not behaving as God intended. But if you are patient and practice kindness toward everyone, it will rub off, and that would be such a wonderful thing. God will be happy to welcome a new believer into his flock, anytime, anywhere.
God bless you,
