The Dark of Day 

“Keep your face always toward the sunshine - and shadows will fall behind you.”  Walt Whitman

Some mornings I think my head is going to explode if the TV is on and hubby is watching it... all the 'news' of the day, or should I say yesterday or last week. He watches You-tube for news. ??  Anyone can say anything and put it up on you-tube. Actually any newscaster can create a factious story and put it on the 'regular' news. 

I have been overfilled with politics already and we are not even in the last stretch of the election for Nov 2020.  The media has the world painted black as doomsday between the ongoing negative rhetoric of the sky is falling and our nation is failing. Only a few politicians and leaders speak with a kind heart and bring positive changes.

There is too much darkness and negativity. We do not need it in our lives. There is a balance of reality and the light of HOPE and our Lord who goes before us and is with us always. 

I do believe I fell under the doomsday effect the past two months with personal things in our extended family and in the world from one event to another and the worst they can make it seem, the more they control you and me.  No more here. My dad's voice is calling to me... 

  • "You have the power to change inside of you."  
  • Make smiling a habit.  Make it genuine.  
  • Make speaking kindly to others constant. Make it genuine. 
  • Look for the best in those you love.  Make it genuine. 
  • Remember how to laugh?  Laugh at yourself first. 
  • Help someone in need.  Do it with a kind heart. 
  • Shine your light on others and it will be from your heart and genuine.  Others will then shine their light on to more people.

The darkness will lift as you push it out of your life.  God is shining his light upon you and me... turn away from the darkness and walk toward him.   Will you join me?  Deep breath in... and let it out slowly.  Drink a glass of water now... and deep breath in and out again. 

When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, "I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life." John 8:12
