Your Happy Life: Day Eight

Day One Day Two Day Three Day Four Day Five Day Six Day Seven I would point to your impermanence, but you already know that you will die. Truly, such an obvious fact isn’t worth mentioning. Nor should we dwell on the futility of material satisfaction. Even God admits that it’s fleeting. Even He, the
