That earlier post - about being a Facebookaholic - was really not very uplifting.
I'm going to salvage the day... by posting some positivity....
Here are some happiness quotes I found recently:
People don't notice whether it's winter or summer when they're happy.
One filled with joy preaches without preaching.
Eden is that old-fashioned house we dwell in every day
Without suspecting our abode until we drive away.
And here are two pictures I like...
This next picture shows you just how big that flower was...(That picture was taken 2 years ago.)
I thought that fit the background I'm using now.
(If you read this later I might not have a fitting background.)
I want to say a word about my faith.
I used to be negative....
and very critical.
My sister told me I didn't have a nice thing to say about anybody. And I didn't.
One of my coworkers - years ago - asked why I never smiled.
Somewhere along the way I decided to read the Bible seriously.
That was daunting... since the Bible IS daunting.
Anyway, I started reading the book of John in the New Testament. (Somebody told me to do that.)
I can't really tell you how it happened but ... before long I was trusting God. Believing the Bible.
'Course then I doubted... and got skeptical ... and cynical... and critical again.... but then somewhere along the way I got back on track.
... and then I found myself smiling...
There are so many more words to say... but, in short, I have found Christ to be THE ANSWER.
I used to be super conservative.. a fundamentalist-type.... against everything fun...
...now I think I'm more balanced...
... and even more convinced that Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life.
I just wanted to write this on this Thursday evening in May.
