Sharing Our Joy


No infringement of copyright intended

Treasures In the Garden

How about adding some joy to life,embracing the 

little things we sometimes forget to find enjoyment in…..


Make a life that sizzles and pops and makes us laugh

out loud. We don’t want to get to the end, or even to 

tomorrow, and realise that our life is a collection of

meetings, washing clothes, errands, receipts, dirty dishes,

and making beds.

We need to savour everything we eat, sing out loud in the car 

with the windows down, wear colourful shoes, stay up all night 

laughing, and paint the walls the exact same colour as 

the sky on nice clear day.

Sleep on nice clean sheets,

Throw parties and share our joy,

Read books that are so good they make us sad when they end.

Make everyday a day, such, that it makes God belly laugh,

Glad that He gave life to us and we love

 the wondrous gift He has given us,SO much.  

My word for today is “JOY!”

I choose to live each with a heart filled with joy and love.

In The Pursuit of Happiness


Treasures In The Garden

 There is enough happiness for everyone…….

Happiness is an inside job…..

Happiness can’t

be travelled to

owned, accrued,worn,or

consumed. Happiness is

the spiritual experience of

living every minute with

love, grace and gratitude.

When life throws us

hundreds of reasons to break 

down and cry, show life that 

we have a thousand reasons

to smile, laugh and be happy.

Lots of reasons to be STRONG!

Remember the time to be happy is NOW!

TIME waits for no one.

I choose to live with joy and happiness in my heart.

My word for today is “NOW!” 

The Benefits of Friendship


Treasures In The Garden

We can have freedom of choice in who are our friends…….

…….and we are free to pursue whatever makes our hearts SING!

In the sweetness

of friendship,

let there be

laughter and tears

and the sharing of pleasure.

My word for today is “FRIENDSHIP!”

Creating Memories


Treasures In The Garden

We create memories when……. 

…….with each passing minute we share with others as we live!

A Special Day


Treasures In The Garden

 

Every day is a special occasion…….

We should not save anything for a special occasion:

Everyday we wake up is a special occasion.

There are things that we have not yet seen.

There are things we have seen and done

and not yet realized they were special.

Savour, not endure. Try to recognize the special moments and cherish them.

We must not take tomorrow for granted ….

see old friends we haven’t seen in ages

Call family,

 Apologize, mend fences,

Write that special letter, 

Tell our family and partner that we LOVE them

.add laughter and lustre to our lives

when we open our eyes and realize “today is SPECIAL!”

Everyday, every hour, every minute, every second is a gift!

Anne Wells (New York Times)

That’s what makes every day so SPECIAL!

……. because we are ALIVE!

 

My word for today is “SPECIAL!”

Happy Mother’s day


Treasures In The Garden

 

We would like to wish all Mother’s a very Happy Mother’s Day. And may all Mother’s who have passed away enjoy eternal HAPPINESS.

A prayer we said for all Mothers around the world, in church this morning:

 

God of LOVE

listen to this prayer.

 God of holy people, of Sarah, Ruth and Rebekha

  Holy Mary, Mother of Jesus,

bend down your ear to this request

and bless women of our families.

Bless them with strength of Spirit,

 they who have taught our children

how to stand and how to walk.

 Bless them with the melody of your LOVE,

 they who have shared how to speak,

how to sing and how to pray to You.

Bless them with a place at your eternal dinner table,

they who have fed and nurtured the lives 

that were helpless, but embraced in their LOVE.

 Bless the women of our families today,

now , in this lifetime, with good things, with health.

Bless them with joy, LOVE, laughter, and pride in our children

and surround them with many good friends.

 May the women who cared for young life

be carried one day to Your Divine embrace:

there for all eternity,

to rejoice with family and friends.

 This blessing and all graces, we pray,

 descend upon the women of our families. Amen.  

My word for today is “MOTHERING!”

I remember my Mother’s prayers and they have always followed me. They have clung to me all my life. Abraham LIncoln.

Making the most out of living


Treasures In The Garden

 

Life is not about finding oneself. It’s about creating oneself.

 

Four things we can’t recover:

 

The stone after it has been thrown.

The word after it’s been said.

The occasion after it has been missed.  

The time after it has gone.

 

And how about:

Laughter is the fireworks of the soul.

All good stuff to ponder upon.

 

My word for today is “CREATING!”
