Who decided life should be so confusing and complicated...
For some reason we have all bought into that premise...
We won't allow clarity and simplicity to confuse our lives...
When we can simply follow the herd into the abyss...

What ever happened to the joy in living?
Is there anyone out there that is truly happy?
I don't know that I have ever met one.
I don't even know if real happiness exists beyond hope...

Many confuse true happiness with social standard and comfort...
Don't be fooled...they really are different.
Stay strong...keep searching...
somewhere out there ...
awaits that intangible tranquility...

Keith, welcome to the Passion Forum.
I'm pleased to introduce you to a heart
that is 'truly happy'.
Hello, Keith. I'm Marge.
Happiness lives in this heart and
spreads to others in need.
It isn't what I do for myself that
measures the size of my heart ...
but what I share with others.
Tranquility isn't the measure of happiness.
Happiness is going up and down, in and out,
standing at the bottom of the valley and having the strength to climb back to the top.
It's having friends who throw the lifeline and pull you up.
It's believing that God reaches back ... when we reach out to Him.
It's giving love to others that keeps it returning to you.
Happy? Yes, I'm happy.
Hope you will be too.
Grab the lifeline ! Pull !
