Random Thoughts

Random Thoughts this week:

Angels surround us,
hold them close.

A note in the newspaper:

Plastic wrap keeps my newspaper dry when delivered.
How can I keep the paper dry when I read the news?

On my heart:

A new and fresh year.
How will I keep it fresh, alive, and full of JOY?
So soon it doesn't have the SHINE of newness.
How can I hold the JOY and SHINE in my heart?

Does your heart and head feel these thoughts?
How can we make it a better world?

Those are provoking questions, in a good way!

With the way this world is going, we need to do what we can in our corner, in our family, in our community. Being a Christian, I think it's so important to instill moral and Christian values on young people who don't have that input in their lives, which unfortunately is too widespread. Youngsters learn by example, and it's time we start being that positive example they need. My father would do this with the neighborhood children from a couple different families where there was no positive roll model. As as foster parent, I tried to do the same. I feel we all need to step to the plate if we are to see any change in the next generations.

Oh, Marilyn, that newspaper note is SO in the right place! I don't think we can make the whole world better. We can only make our part of it better. But if we all do that, we'll cover quite a bit of ground. We at least have to try.

Such important questions to consider. So thankful for the Lord's presence always.
