Do you have your Halloween pumpkin carved yet?
We carved a pumpkin a few weeks ago when our granddaughter was here. Always aiming to carve a happy face.
Happiness on a pumpkin shows me that superficial happiness is something less than the power I give it.
Eating chocolate makes me happy. But not really. Knowing this fact allows me to improve my expectations. Instead of expecting chocolate to give me happiness, I can expect truth and love to come with happiness. I can expect honesty and a willingness to try something new to come with happiness. Maybe eating an apple is good.
Quoting from science & religion to God:
“How we interpret life affects not only our outlook and expectations, but also the consequences.”
