The sun will probably rise again tomorrow with beautiful rays of light to brush the earth, but we are not promised another day.
Do what is right to other people. Love being kind to others. And live humbly, trusting your God. — Micah 6:8 ICB
The shadows of darkness visit the hearts of others, bringing messages of power over others as they lose sight of what is evil and right.
Better a dry crust with peace and quiet than a house full of feasting, with strive. — Proverbs 17:1 NIV
Consider who you are, what you have, and how this country was formed with life, liberty, and in God we trust.
In all the work you are doing, work the best you can. Work as if you were doing it for the Lord, not for people. —- Colossians 3:23 NCV
No one needs to remind us of the sins of our country as we continue to grow, learn and repair.
Even though good people may be bothered by trouble seven times, they are never defeated.—- Proverbs 24:16 NCV
Setbacks occasionally are the price we pay as we continue our pathway, but we must never lose faith.
Consider contentment as it springs up for us, and we fall into the season of a peaceful heart, clear conscience, and loving heart. We can do this in our space until we look through the window to see all.
Our corner of the world is dividing more each day. The world has troubles in all areas. Enduring all of this noise, unrest, and unrecognizable places is too much for us. How can we find contentment?
- Know who you are—be appreciative
- Understand what you have—be grateful
- Identify the freedoms you have—be thankful
- Love for self, others, and country—-be joyful
Today is the best time to consider the key to contentment in our lives rests with each one of us and what we focus on in our lives. It is not in the titles we collect, the money we earn, or the acquisitions we make. It is our disposition.
Our hearts, minds, and souls provide us with all we need to make life the best. We have obligations and responsibilities to not only ourselves, but to family and others in the world, we share. In honoring others, we must make sure we are making decisions that reflect Two Rules. (Everyone will feel good. Everyone will feel safe.)
We have a constitution, laws, rules, standards, and a moral compass to guide us daily. Each one of us is part of how our society works. We must always stay informed by seeking out all forms, resources, and sources of information to help us in decision-making. It is up to each one of us to provide our voice, vote, and volunteer when we can. Actively engage where you can in discussions and share thoughts. Talking with others, voting, and providing an extra hand is a great beginning to consider the necessary changes.
