Life 101: "Creating Happiness"

Great morning!!!

I love blogging so much I just thought I'd say that, so Lord's will, nothing will keep me from you guys and spending my time here blogging! I tweeted the other evening, "Just very happy and at ease." I love my mornings. Was able to get up at 8:45 a.m. this morning! Lord help me to rise early every day! Even though I am currently unemployed, I want to stay active and be every where I need to be when I need to be there! Bless God!

I have listed here my absolute favorites. I do all of these on the regular and they take me to a sweet place similar to worship, praise God! WARNING, some parts may be more for women than men so please caution before proceeding, thank you.

Rising early Waking early gives you a sense of unspoken happiness (maybe for you too, but for me it is a spoken happiness--I bless God each morning that I rise, amen!) Just great joy. We have heard throughout our lifetime people say that, "Oh, I'm not a morning person." Well, I hope you are not a night person, amen! Early morning air is so sweet! So pure, so indescribable. Rising early is a moment where time stands still, a moment where time is prolonged. The hours in the day are stretched, which means more time with God, more time to bask in His glory.

Light candles at sundown I do this on rare occasion because most times I have not considered it. It is a treat. Not just any candles, they must be scented, adding extra joy. Light just one makes for a modest happiness, while several is really indulging, lol! :) The time at which you light the candles depends upon your mood. At sundown could be a time of remembrance and early morning could symbolize an early blessing.

Scents Ok now this is a big one. While I hope that you practice each one, this is where you should probably begin. Fancy or non-fancy, this one is required, ok! Think, Airwick Scented Oils (plugins), scented candles as mentioned earlier, and hand lotion from like Bath & Body Works or something. Perfumes. Scents are a very bold statement. Get some plugins and put 'em in your room. This is what I have done and I can't stand not having them. Each time you walk into your room, you get a big glop of scented-greatness stimulating your nostrils.

Status Update #7, "A Season of Remembrance"

Good morning!,

Great day today, you guys. Hope you're all getting a great start on this day. Just popping in to give a short status update. It's been about two weeks since my last post, and a little longer since a substantial post. The Lord has shown me that right now I am in a season of remembrance, so I've been quiet.

Quiet trying to figure out what was going on right now, and now knowing, I came to share. July was a phenomenal month for me and God. Lots of wonderful journaling and time spent with Him, lots of special time and things revealed. All three of my books were born during that month, so that was incredibly monumental.
