Thank you for your note to TruthBook.com, a

I can't say why you seem to lose the things
that you say you want the most as you don't offer
any details on your situation, but I can say that
sometimes it's better to be grateful for what one
already has than to be unhappy about that one
thing we can't have. Gratitude opens the heart to
God, and once you acknowledge his presence in
your life, he many times gives you more and more
to be grateful for. God knows you and what you
need better than you know yourself, so it is a

these values as you go through life.
Sincerely trying to find and do God's will
brings the highest happiness there can be. So,
