the day after my sugar-high

we had such a lovely day yesterday
our easter service was amazing!
my daughter and i sang in the choir
and right before we went up for our last song
there was an altar call
the whole choir stood there at the altar
while many, many others began to join us
it was a moving experience
thankful. blessed. oh yes indeed1

afterwards, the youngest had (college) homework
the older two girls had in-laws to visit
so we had easter evening (dinner)
followed by a treasure hunt for the old kids
and egg hunt (inside because of rain)
it was an altogether wonderful day!

saturday i went shopping with the youngest
for a belated birthday present
we went to seattle
while in this little boutique
there was a sign on the wall
i discreetly pulled out my phone and;
LOVE this sign!!!
how true too
we need to remember
that happiness IS a way of life
no matter the storm
i CHOOSE
hope
i CHOOSE
happiness
i CHOOSE
to look at the blessings!


may you too look at all the
good you have in your life
sit and dwell on the
happiness, hope and blessings
be blessed
life is GREAT


always,
melody-mae

i choose hope, happiness and to look at the blessings is a productive and healthy way to choose/select a way to live!

Well, it's certain that if I ever forget to choose the hope, happiness and to look at the blessings, stopping by here is a wonderful reminder!

I love that sign, too! It's all too easy to get bogged down in the little details and challenges that we can forget to just be *HAPPY*.

So glad you had a wonderful Easter weekend :)

you never fail to up-lift with your words/photos. your Easter service sounds like it was heartwarming in all ways, and your perspective on life is a great thing for sure.

You're right, life is GREAT! Every night I give thanks for all my blessings, for the beauty of all His creation, and for the health of my family and friends. Glad you had such a lovely day!

Ditto! I love the sign. Cell phones are handy. Have a great Monday. For that matter, have a great week.

It sounds like you had a lovely Easter. I'm so glad :)

Oh, and I love that sign. I agree completely...happiness is a choice and a state of mind. Happiness is counting your blessings everyday for there are many! Thanks for the reminder :)
