Here is the What are the secrets? forum.

I once heard that a person "is as happy as they decide to be." Attitude is a big deal. I personally think it is "having something to look forward to " that keeps you happy. As we get older we need to remember to plan things that we enjoy. PP was the happiest most at peace person I ever knew. He never worried about anything. He just knew what to do about any problem that came up did what needed to be done and got on with living. All the worrying was left to me. Things always worked out. When I get depressed some days I know he would not like that and I get up and get busy. Fifteen minutes of crying and get on with living. shirleyt

That is a wonderful testimony, Shirley. And good advice.

For me, the secret is God. Not much of a secret, really. When you put yourself in God's hands and trust that He will not let you go, and then remind yourself of that often in prayer, it is easy to have a positive attitude.

I think of it like this. Picture a 2x4, and put God at one end and the World at the other. Put a ball in the center of the 2x4. If you roll that ball closer to the end where God is, you only get farther away from the World. But if you start rolling the ball toward the other end of the 2x4, where the World is, then you only get farther and farther away from God. Stay close to Him and He will supply your needs.

So the secret for me is to not let the World and all of its tricks and traps overtake my Faith. I believe the Bible, and it says that the Father will not let his children beg for bread or want for anything. I'm His child, and I believe Him because so far He has kept His word. How could I be unhappy?

Just now seeing your reply Nap. I just walk outside look around and know. There is a higher power and I know it is God. Everything is in his hands. We may not know why things turn out the way they do, but he does. I walk and talk to him daily he is my friend. Everything I do I do for his glory. When I plant my plants I do it for him. That is why they get so huge for me. Thumb of 2010-09-15/shirley/5fac61
