We are focusing on more health today because it is so very important for every area of our life. The benefits of healthier bodies and minds carry over into ALL other ares of our lives--better job performance, better relationships, happier days.
Happy Sunday! I have always been more of an optimist, believe in the power of positive thinking. But, some days it is just hard to focus on the positive. On these days, when I remember, I force myself to stop the stinkin' thinkin' by mentally listing 10 things I am thankful for. I have also kept a gratitude journal throughout various tough life times and believe that it can be life changing. This week when you find yourself grumbling and focusing on the bad, stop and think about and be thankful for the good things in your life.
Wow, super brave, right? It got me to thinking, what are my fears and how can I overcome them. I have some little fears such as, "Do I look like an idiot wearing this?" and the BIG ones, "What if my child dies while driving to school."
Happy Easter! Today we celebrate the empty tomb. We celebrate Jesus's victory over death. We remember the hope of his promises and are assured that Jesus will do what he says he will do, we need only to believe. May today remind you that there is victory over death, light in the dark places, healing where there is pain, hope when things seem hopeless. Rejoice and rest--Jesus has conquered the grave!
I definitely believe in the saying, "One man's trash, is another man's treasure" and I am sure the former owners of our 1931 schoolhouse thought these old grates (I found three tucked in a corner of the basement) were junk.
