May God bless your day with peace, joy and love.
Peace joy and love are three very remarkable words. I get a good feeling just saying them. Sometimes I need to say encouraging words to myself over and over again so I’ll have something to feel good about too.
There is a lot of power in positive thinking. I’ve discovered that we were not made for negative thoughts. We get all out of sorts both mentally and bodily. Stressful moments can make us sick and cause all sorts of unhealthy things to happen to our bodies. Our minds can only take so much negativity and it too rebels.
I read this observation of positive thinking and thought it said so much of what I’ve been trying to say:
Optimism relies on the human person. It requires courage, will power, bravery and a belief that things will improve. However we are fragile and weak. Sometimes our initial optimism quickly fades. Hope on the other hand has its roots in God. We put our hope and trust in God. Hope is not a protective shield from the knocks of the world and life. But hope will always allow us to take a step forward away from darkness, despair, confusion and hopelessness. A combination of optimism and hope is one that will never let us down.
We all have had or will have some bad things happen in our lives but if we pray about it the good Lord will help us to overcome the difficulties. He is always right there to give us the assistance we need.
Thank you so much for those that prayed for my friends sister’s surgery yesterday. She and her family were very thankful to have so many praying. I do not know yet how things are going for her but will update you when I do.

Every morning, when you wake up, set your dial to 'worthwhile'.
