I saw this quote today.


It was the equivalent of a lightening bolt to my heart.

Where does my happiness come from?

      Dear Laura,

      Were you by any chance the one who made a choco choco cake with sour cream and old fashioned frosting. I had pinned it from thevelevtdoe and it used to be my go to. I haven’t baked in a while and now am desperately looking for the recipe.

    What if what you lose is your beloved child?

    • Christina says:

      I can appreciate the quote but my happiness lies in my children, husband and health. All three I could lose…I will still place a large majority of my happiness there, that’s what I was put here for. I do understand that this quote was probably intended for material items we possess and put way too much time and energy into. Thought provoking though…

      • Amanda says:

        Hi Christina- This quote is actually all about faith. The Lord, our God, encourages us to put our faith and trust in Him, not in earthly things. While my husband and children are the most important people to me on earth, my relationship is God the most important relationship I will ever have. The author is suggesting to us that we put our happiness in God, because that is where *true* joy comes from.
        God knows that people make us happy, as he is in fact the creator of those relationships. He loves when we love one another! But I believe that God wants us to first and foremost seek Him, seek His eternal peace and love, and seek His joy. Ultimately, I believe, if we put all out hope and faith in man, we will be unfulfilled. I hope that explains it more? Blessings~
