Accentuate the Positive

It’s time for me to think about the blessings in my life. I have lived 81 years with lots of love and caring both me for others and others for me. I was blessed by wonderful parents and grew up feeling safe and loved. In today’s world not many can say that.

I am living in a place that will keep me safe and secure for the rest of my days. Not many people can say that. I have so much to be thankful for.

It is so easy to get in the habit of dealing with the negatives in our lives and not spend any time think about what is good. We all have heard that we should concentrate daily on the good things but we let the bad take over.

I want to begin anew my “worry less journey” learning to be grateful each day. The down times may try to pull me away but I will find ways to let it go.

This very old song sums up my thoughts. (Johnny Mercer was a native from where I lived.. Savannah Ga)

  1. Amen, Suzanne! God is good, all the time, and in every place and circumstance. I just read about a Christian man imprisoned in a country hostile to Christianity, who had the job of shoveling out the latrines. He smelled so bad no one would come near him. He rejoiced that in his isolation he could sing God’s praises as loudly as he wanted. … wow.
