it's not for everyone but there's two books I found at Hallmark in the cards section: Bedside Blessings by Charles R Swindoll and God's Shelter For
Your Storm by Sheila Walsh. Reading just a page or two in the morning instead of turning on CNN has made me a lot happier and made a lot of the
insanity in our world more bearable.
Their just short little positive meditations, takes only a few minutes to read. I grab one of these books and my cup of morning coffee and take the
dogs out in our fenced in back yard. Sit up on a lawn chair on our deck and read a page or two............really starts my day out on a positive
If you are reading this, you have access to a computer, you're very lucky.
You are also lucky if you:
Had a meal today.
Have a bed and a room with a lock on the door and a roof over your head.
Clothes on your back and shoes on your feet.
Someone that has told you "I love you" or smiled at you (you're very blessed) - If you don't and can afford it, adopt a shelter dog. Yes money
can buy unconditional love but it's a responsibility just like having a little child entails.
You can afford medicine.
Today between 28,000-48,000 people will die from lack of food and clean water alone.
If you can breath in and out - you made it another day, you are lucky...............not everyone will see tomorrow's sunrise.
Life is precious.
From Bedside Blessings by Chareles R. Swindoll page 210 July 13th
We must admit that we spend more of our time concentrating and fretting over the things that can't be changed - than we do giving attention to
the cone that we can change, our choice of attitude. Stop and think about some of the things that suck up our attention and energy, all of them
inescapable: the weather, the wind, people's action and criticisms, who won or lost the gam, delays at airports.
Quit wasting energy fighting the inescapable and turn your energy to keeping the right attitude..
O Lord, my heart is not proud, nor my eyes haughty; nor do I involve myself in great matters. Psalm 131:1
