Enjoy life and help others do the same!

Are you wondering how to be able to enjoy life right now?  Below on this page is a list of suggestions below on this page that you might want to try. I encourage you to make your personal list. Obviously, there are still a lot of other ways to enjoy life. Let us know what some of your favorite ways to enjoy life in your perspective? 

Make your life count for something and for as many others that God puts in your pathway in life. Do not waste your days, because they all are a gift from God, and what you do with that gift, is your gift back to God and to others. Try new things, enjoy what you have and also what you do not have, and be sure to share with others what you have. Trust God in all that you do, and do not let your fears run your life. Be all you can be and encourage others to do the same! Understand that being a Christian does not mean you cannot have fun, but it does mean that the fun you will be having will be wholesome and pleasing to God, learn to enjoy life while you please God with your life at the same time! ~ Bill Greguska

Even if you have a terminal disease, you don’t have to sit down and mope. Enjoy life and challenge the illness that you have. ~ Nelson Mandela

Philippians 2:2-4  then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and of one mind.  Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves,  not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.
