All we have to do is look around to see that the world is in chaos. I don’t see how this will change things.
There is so much going on and yes, there is some good in there, but the bad and the ugly really seems to be coming out.
We’re battling a pandemic, there is looting and violence going on everywhere, and it’s election year.
Some say the pandemic is a hoax. Some are against wearing a mask. The truth is nobody likes wearing a mask. But if there is even a minuscule chance that wearing one will save someone else’s life (or your own), shouldn’t that be enough?
When it comes to elections I would be curious to see how many people actually learn the facts, views, and plans on both sides before they start criticizing the other candidate, the candidate supporters, and before they actually cast their vote. I suspect there are many people who focus in on one thing they are angry about or just listen to what others are saying without finding out the facts and making their own decisions. Elections in themselves never bring out the good in people. This is when you can see people at their ugliest. Everyone is so passionate about their beliefs which there is nothing wrong with. What is wrong is when people become so blatantly cruel toward those who do not believe the same as they do.
It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and stay in the moment.
Restaurants and stores are opening back up, people are going back to work, and people are starting to gather. This trying time is far from over but we’re getting back to our lives (somewhat).
Normally many of us find ourselves on a never ending merry-go-round finding it hard to rest and just be. Some are afraid to because if they allow themselves to rest or sit in quiet, instead of chaos, they may have to think about or face something they don’t want to but maybe should. I have been given the challenge before to just sit in complete silence, to just be, and to set aside all of my worries, focus on just one thing, or just clear my mind. Have you ever tried that? It is not as easy as you may think. Before you know it your mind is wandering back to the to do list or worrying about something. It’s amazing how hard it is to truly just be in the moment.
We can certainly take lessons from our pets on this as this image below wonderfully portrays. Continue reading →
It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and smile.😁
I didn’t get a chance to write a post yesterday so I thought I might wind up skipping this Sunday. But when I woke up this morning I had a song in my head and it made me smile. I decided this song would be great to share.
The song is about smiling even though “stuff” is happening. There is some “stuff” that could bring me down a little bit this weekend…if I let them. Continue reading →
Today is my birthday so I thought I would do a little bit different kind of tale, a tale about me. This will be my first “Tuesday Tale” about a human. But hey, as I always say, we humans and animals are all living, feeling beings…so why not?!
At church this past Sunday, the sermon was about fear. In this sermon and the one before the topic of being frozen in life was spoken about. When you’re fearful, you become frozen. They go hand in hand.
What does this have to do with me? Well, here I am another year older and I have been thinking a lot about my life, especially the last few years. Continue reading →
Thanksgiving is only a few days away. A time to reflect on what we are thankful for.
Here is a beautiful video of the sun shining over the water, the waves moving, and a beautiful song about what we can be thankful for and where it all comes from. I encourage you to view the pictures below as you listen to the video about these beautiful things.
D0 you appreciate nature? Check out the video below. This is my
favorite song! I can not listen to it without crying. The part that gets to me is the chorus “I see the Lord seated on the throne, exalted, and the train of his robe fills the temple with glory, and the whole earth is filled, and the whole earth is filled, and the whole earth is filled with his glory.” I envision it every time and it is overwhelmingly beautiful to me. I think of the pain in the world, including animals suffering, and then I think of the train of his robe touching earth and I get overwhelmed. This video represents what I envision when I listen to this song, how beautiful everything is with God in it, how things were meant to be! There are some beautiful creatures in this video too!
