Happiness fluctuates

A time of joy and sadness

An up-and-down scale.

  1. Wonderful to see you–and “fluctuations” is definitely how I’d describe this whole year. I’m grateful that Jesus is unchanging, always stable. God bless you BIG–love, sis Caddo

    • Thank you, Caddo. Happy to be back, though I owe you and our blogging friends an apology for my own “Fluctuations” in posting and replying at WordPress… so many storms, it wasn’t easy. I could only pray and hope for fair weather and sun-shiny days ahead.
      Like you, I’m grateful that God’s love is unchanging and steadfast.
      Love, blessings, and bear hugs to you, dear sis!.

      • You never need to apologize, Sis–we’re grateful you’re still alive, and glad whenever we see your lovely face.

  2. Truth in simple words
    Beauty in nature captured
    Shared for all to see

  3. Only if we allow it. We can keep happiness class by even when we feel sad.

    • Thank you, Kim, for the reminder…but I can’t help feeling sad over situations beyond my control–it’s both my weakness and strength when I allow my self to feel, to smile,,or to burst in tears.

      • You’re preaching to the choir. You’ve read some of my work. You know I do sadness and pain very well. As I’m getting older I learn I have a choice to be happy and that is what I’m striving for everyday. That’s what I’m sharing with you. Life is too short to waste it being sad. So when I feel that sadness I try to turn it around. Because we really are in charge of our feelings.

  4. Words of sweet truth…I am always blessed by your words! Hugs and blessings!

  5. Beautiful photo and words of truth; they fit my emotions for the past year, for sure! 🙂 Hugs!

  6. Love the up beat in your words , Cynthia, and the feel of balance. Hugs, francina
