Life at times can get rather hectic and at times we forget what blessings we truly have. I wanted to share with you 6 little stories that I hope bring a little bit of happiness into your day today.
As you know I am trying to rise up out of the ashes of a pretty bad nuclear event that took place in my life and instead of choosing to see all the bad and negative things, I am choosing to flip the picture and find the good.
There is an old saying, when life gives you lemons, you make lemon-aide.
That is what I am trying to do and share the life lessons I am learning as I re-build.
6 Little Stories
(1). Once all villagers decided to pray for rain. On the day of prayer, all the people gathered, but only one boy came with an umbrella. That is faith.
(2). When you throw babies in the air, they laugh because they know you will catch them. That is trust.
(3). Every night we go to bed without any assurance of being alive the next morning, but still we set the alarms to wake up. That is hope.
(4). We plan big things for tomorrow in spite of zero knowledge of the future. That is confidence.
(5). We see the world suffering, but still, we get married and have children. That is love.
(6). On an old man’s shirt was written a sentence ‘I am not 80 years old; I am sweet 16 with 64 years of experience.’ That is attitude.
Imagine what we could do if we had more faith, trust, hope, confidence, love and attitude.
How could we better effect our world when all that our world seems to offer is doom, gloom, anger and distrust?
Did one of these 6 little stories touch your heart?
If so how? Please share so that both of us can be encouraged and hopefully we then encourage more people that are within our circle of influence.
How did it touch my heart?
I am reminded of the time the children came to Christ and the innocents that they had. The love, trust, hope, faith, confidence and attitude of a child.
Sometimes I think that if we would find our way back to that innocents, how much of a better world would it be.
One act of kindness…
