Well, How was your summer? And by the way, where did it go? I have been traveling lately so have missed my ittle non-sensical section here. Travel is good. It makes one appreciate what is at home. I love our “liitle” town atmosphere and believe it nor not, we are envied by many. Those who have moved from Kingsville for one reason or another still talk about the small town life and would really like to get back into it.
My family and I took a little trip south to visit relatives. The tunas and the dolphins, oh so many cousins, aunts, and uncles. While swimming with those huge “schools” of relatives in that huge ocean was fun for awhile, we are really glad to be back in our own liitle tank we call “home” in quiet little Kingsville.
That brings me to the word “happiness.” What does it mean? My trusty dictionary says, “The state of being satisfied or glad; contentment; giving joy.” We are probably all hpapy and don’t even realize it. But just stop and think about it. What really makes us happy? Is it money, food and drink, big cars, and lovely homes? These are all things and I do not think these things are the source of our happiness. For me, just knowing the Lord and knowing He is in my life and will always be there for me is such a comforting, “happy” feeling. And the big thing, doing for others, making others who are hurting feel good about themselves, makes me feel very :happy.”
I just love these country commandments, “There is Only One god… no hankering for others stuff. No Cuss’n…Gather on Sunday…No kill’n…Mind your Ma and Pa… Cheatin’ is forbidd’n…Ya’ll Don’t Steal…No white lies or gossip’n…No False Gods. That is telling it like it is.
Study Psalm 139 and you will discover God knows everything about you. Even more than you know about yourself. Romans 8:e8-39. You will discover God knows everything about you and nothing can separate you from his love. Thank Him for creating the unique person you are.
Let me be a light, O God, that shines for all to see. If someone needs to find the way. An example may I be of love and kindness and brotherhood of all that’s gentle, of all that’s good.
Have a Grrreat Day, God Bless you All, Love,

Have you ever been just sitting there and all of a sudden you feel like doing something nice for someone you care for? That is God and He talks to you through the Holy Spirit.
Have you ever been down and out and nobody seems to be around for you to talk to? That’s God. He wants you to talk to Him.
Have you ever been thinking about somebody that you haven’t seen in a long time and the next thing you know you see them or receive a phone call from them? That’s God. There is no such thing as coincidence.
Have you ever received something wonderful that you didn’t even ask for, like money in the mail, a debt that had mysteriously been cleared or a coupon from a department store where you had just seen something you wanted but couldn’t afford? That’s God. He knows the desire of your heart.
