Orange Ball

Orange ball in the sky,
Rising up, going high.
Orange ball in the sky,
Measuring life, to you and I.

Orange ball in the sky,
Shining bright, in my eye.
Orange ball in the sky,
Hovering above, to magnify.

Orange ball in the sky,
Inspires me, to testify.
Orange ball in the sky,
Enlightens all, to glorify.

Orange ball in the sky,
Sinking low, the moon’s nigh.
Orange ball in the sky,
Now’s gone, and so I’ll lie.

Don’t chase happiness. Become anti-fragile

“But the truth is that’s not the kind of thing that makes a person happy. They sit in this beautiful penthouse and then they want a friend to share it with, they want people to hang out with. I think the one thing people miss is, from both a happiness point of view and also a purpose, meaning, point of view, the power of the right social connections.” Excerpt from A good life is painful

“All human activity is prompted by desire. There is a wholly fallacious theory advanced by some earnest moralists to the effect that it is possible to resist desire in the interests of duty and moral principle. I say this is fallacious, not because no man ever acts from a sense of duty, but because duty has no hold on him unless he desires to be dutiful. If you wish to know what men will do, you must know not only, or principally, their material circumstances, but rather the whole system of their desires with their relative strengths.” Excerpt from The Four Desires Driving All Human Behavior

“In every encounter, we either give life or we drain it; there is no neutral exchange.” By: Brennan Manning

“This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.” Bible, Psalm 118:24

“Always give thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.” Ephesians 5:20
