Live A Happy Life

comment 1

  The end of the week makes most people happy.  Especially those of us who work Monday through Friday.  We look forward to the weekends! A time to relax, refresh and recharge for the next week coming up.
Circumstances in our life can bring us down though can’t they? And a lot of times how we handle those circumstances is what brings us down! Hey, I’m preaching to the choir here! I don’t always handle things with grace and dignity.

God has a word for us today! He has a word for me!

“Honor his holy name with Hallelujahs, you who seek God. Live a happy life!” Psalm 105:3 The Message

The Author

Hey glad you dropped by! My name is Elizabeth Maxwell, but everyone knows me as "Beth." I am the wife to Kevin Maxwell of 35 years. We have 3 grown sons, one daughter-in-law, and our adopted daughter Maria. God laid on our hearts to experience the adoption journey in 2000. Our sweet Maria is special needs and from Bulgaria. God has truly been with us every step of the way on our journey with her. I live in the beautiful foothills state of Tennessee. I love my beautiful Tennessee home. From the foothills to the whippoorwills, God's beauty shines forth here. I love to laugh often. I enjoy old movies, reading books, and I love to sing southern gospel songs, especially the ones with a little bit of country. I love my sweet little job, working with Kindergartners...and yes "kids do say the darndest things!" I am encouraged by God's word and I love to dig into it. I am by no means a scholarly expert, but I do delight in His encouragement for me. I am a friend of God...after all, God's got my back! And not just my back - "He goes before me." (Deuteronomy 31:8) "He's right beside me." (Hebrews 13:5) and, "He surrounds me on every side." (Psalm 125:2) These verses remind me that I am not alone while traveling on this "Journey Called Life!" Won't you travel with me? While on this journey, I may share a recipe, a book, or even a movie or song that I love....but most of all I want to share God's word with you. My prayer is that you will be encouraged, and know that you are not alone on this journey called life!

  1. Every time I open my people, there is a new message for me! It is amazing how I can read a familiar passage at different times in my life and still learn something. Hebrews 4:12: “For the word of God is living and active…”
