Find something to smile about, remembering that there are many, many more GOOD people in this world than those who make the news so difficult to watch.

These are sweet reminders -

Where words and actions disagree, the heart is revealed.

Look how often the unexpected happens... and we still don't expect it.

Absolutely Cat!

I am reminded also of Philippians 4:8

NIV

Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable - if anything is excellent or praiseworthy - think about such things.


KJV

Finally, brethern, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

(Bold mine)

I keep reminding myself of all the good things around me, to push the bad stuff I hear out of my thoughts.

So... on the lighter side of life, we received some much needed rain, the clouds are clearing, the sun is shining, the birds are contently fed and MrsSurvival is running smoothly. :bouquet:

Words, are spirits.
God's, are Life.

Agreed...just look around you at the folk's who jumped in to help Sandy victims...Katrina victims...and many right in our own community when tornadoe's destroyed two mobile home parks and several subdivisons. We even took a trip to WM and loaded up our van & donated blankets, comforters, pillows along with lots of personal care items. Our local WM busted up packages of soap etc., and sold them at discounted prices so people could buy them single or more. Yep...lots more good people than bad.

Matthew 6:11  "Give us this day our daily bread...amen." 

Phillipians 4:19  "And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus....amen"

1 Corinthians 13:4-8  "Love is patient; love is kind; love is not envious or boastful or arrogant  or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice in wrongdoing, but rejoices in the truth.  It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things"...let me walk this out Lord.

Thanks for starting this thread and posting the link, Cat!!
Psalm 27:13

I would have lost heart, unless I had believed
That I would see the goodness of the Lord
In the land of the living.

Cat and Gofish, thank you SO much for sharing those links.

Lou Xiaoying truly is a hero, and I feel if people like her were looked up to more, the world would be a much better place. She's more of a hero than a sports figure, actor, etc who are usually the ones kids/teens/adults look up to.

This bit from the article 'I realised if we had strength enough to collect garbage how could we not recycle something as important as human lives,' she explained. stuck with me. What a beautiful person, giving out of her need, showing so much love and care.

I can't thank you enough for sharing that. :hug3:

Wonderful links!

You can't always get what you want, babe

But if you try sometimes, you just might find

You get what you need.

Thanks ladies for sharing these links and the good news. We have been so inundated with negative news lately that it has really put a damper on my joy. You have brightened my day with the good news. Thank you.
