Happiness is…

I won my first “bloggy award”!!!  (Fireworks, Horns, Hoots, Confetti!!!!!!)

Bloggy Awards are little awards that bloggers pass on to one another to boost morale, show support, say thanks.

I received the Happiness 101 Award from a blogger that happens to make me very

And They Lived Blogging Ever After...

happy whenever I read one of her current post on  BloggingEverAfter.

Ok, part of getting the award is passing it on to another blog (see bottom of post. I’ll be awarding one a day for 3 days) AND sharing 10 things that make me happy.

First, TEN THINGS THAT MAKE GLORIS HAPPY (the music builds…)

I’ll share a few each day, starting with (drums rolling…)


It wasn’t always that way, of course.  God hasn’t always been at the top of my happiness list, and I’m praying that it will be more and more that way every day.

Here’s BETH MOORE, author/Bible teacher, encouraging us from Psalm 63 to love God.  ( :)Beth Moore makes me happy, so that’s my #2 )

Doing her Bible studies is a faith shot directly into my heart!  Here’s one of my favorites:

🙂 BELIEVING GOD is another happy thing for me, so it’s #3.

Click on the pic to see about signing up for the it online version if you’re interested.  It’s great to do online studies in the comfort of your own home, in your pajamas, even.  They’re so convenient.

Ok, Let’s pray that God will be “ours”, like Beth Moore suggested:

:)prayer makes me happy, so that’s #4.

love you, Oh, Lord my strength.  You are my Rock, my Fortress, and My Deliverer.  You are my God, Rock in whom I can take refuge; my Stronghold.  I can call to you and be saved from my enemies (Psalm 18:1-2), from my powerful enemies who are too strong for me. (i.e. Satan and his cohorts)

Oh, Father in Heaven, You are love! (1John 4:8), and you love me more than I could ever love myself.  Show me how deep and wide, how high and deep your love is for me.  I want to be rooted and grounded in that love. (Ephesians 3:17-18)

And I want to believe with all my heart that it’s true, that, in fact,  you do love me.

Increase my faith!

In Jesus’ name, Amen!”

“Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.” (Ephesians 3:20-21)

( 🙂 Now that’s a happy verse! # 5 )

And the receiver of the first Happy 101 Award from Gloriadelia is … envelope, please… MutteringsfromtheMoor!

Click on the blog name to see the first post of “Mrs. Mutterer’s” that I read.  It about a little wooly lamb named, Annie, that grabbed my heart and made me very happy. (:) #6) The blog is “mutterings” from the moors of England.

Check back in tomorrow for other Happy things and Award #2!

  1. Thank you Gloris, thats so kind. Now I need to work out how to get the award to show on my blog! I find it quite hard when I look back at my posts about Annie. I miss her terribly. Last week the BBC did a week of live programmes, called Lambing Live, from a farm in Wales. During the course of the week, hundreds of lambs were born, and some had to be bottle fed like Annie. I spent an hour every night in tears while I watched these lambs being born. It was just amazing. It was such a wonderful priviledge to look after her. I hope I get a chance to do it again one day with another animal.

    • I’ll send you a link to copy/paste the award. That’s a cute title, “Lambing Live”. What will they think of next? You made Annie happy while she lived with you on the moor, and lots of readers happy as we followed your adventures.

    • Thank you, JeLisa! Hope lots of people come to see your post I posted. Every married couple in the world should see it. It makes you want to go hug your spouse!

  2. You are a dear woman, Gloris and I’m so proud of you! There should be a Heart award too and you should get it! (I wrote that through misty eyes. I’m a sap, I admit it but I love you!!!)

  3. I have been going through my old post and wanted to stop by and say hello! I really appreciate that you let me know about getting this award (aka blog hug :o), since you found me through google searching about it :o) Yes, it is fun to see it out there, since our daughter did create it for her 101st post :o)

    My hubby and son are at a friend’s, so I have some “guilt-free” blog reading time :o)

    Hope you are doing well!
    Blessings & Aloha!
    (have a safe and Happy July 4th! and if you get a chance to stop by, I would love to share some of our son’s music with you!)
