"You show me the path of life. In your presence there is fullness of joy; in
your right hand are pleasures forevermore."  ~Psalm 16:11

"In your presence there is fullness of joy; in your right hand are pleasures
forevermore."  We do not find true happiness by looking for it.  Seeking
pleasure does not bring happiness in the long run, only disillusionment.  We
need not seek to have this fullness of joy by seeking pleasure.  It cannot
be done that way.  Happiness is a by-product of living the right kind of
life.  True happiness comes as a result of living in all respects the way we
believe God wants us to live, with regard to ourselves and to other people.

.=: P R A Y E R   F O R   T H E   D A Y  :=.

I pray that I may not always seek pleasure as a goal.  I pray that I may be
content with the happiness that comes when I do the right thing.

have asked our prayers and for those who need our prayers the most. Have a
good day!
