“I don't think of all the misery, but of the beauty that still remains.” Anne Frank

I was just passing through the den where Hubby was watching a news report. We had some down news last night that one of our trees in the back yard is diseased and we may lose it and the other two large Red Oaks as well.  Might as well blow up the back yard loosing the three huge trees that shade the house. 

He looked up at me and said, "Go wash your face using hot water".  I am looking at him funny. It is 10 a.m.  and I cannot imagine how my face was dirty since I have only been up three hours and have not been anywhere since I washed it rising from sleep at seven.  I have learned to just do things for usually he has a reason for 'washing my face'.  

As I arrived at the sink I pulled out a new clean washrag and ran the water hot and began soaking the rag and putting it to my face.  I gathered up the hand soap and lathered the rag and washed my face. (again) I took my time rinsing realizing how much stress was leaving my body and my mind. The simple act of washing my face put a new smile on my face with clear thoughts as I left the bathroom. 

Lesson learned... let go of the things pulling you down or causing worry. Go wash your face. If you cannot do that, take your mind to a place where you can imagine no Covid, no rioting, no attacks on your country... I think of heaven and the beauty it might contain... I would love cooler air, a running stream and lots of trees. 

 Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him." James 1:12
