The wonderful video above was posted on Facebook – – – and should be viewed around the world (It says it can’t be previewed while I have it scheduled to be posted… but I hope when it actually posts, you can see this). Let’s help it go viral… and work to make it come true!
Another take on when this whole Coronavirus mess began was posted with this quote from CS Lewis “Screwtape Letters” today:
It doesn’t really help to blame Satan or China or Trump or any other place or person for this virus. We know it was not man-made… and blaming won’t make the world a better place. Only love and compassion can do that!
How will it all End?
It will take each of us individually working for a brighter tomorrow … and each of us acting in concert with others to create the world we all want to see. Let’s stand hand in hand!
Hand in hand…
Keep dreaming and working for a brighter, more compassionate world. What’s one thing you can do to help? Make this a Happy Cinco de Mayo with something positive you do today to bring a smile to a friend. What will it be?
You can bring a smile to my face by sharing your ideas for how you celebrate the 5th of May today … and what you’ll do fora brighter tomorrow in the comments section below.
I’m feeling tired Pretending to be normal Can be exhausting
You know it’s more fun To let your quirkiness show And lots less tiring!
How weird can you be And still be considered sane? Who needs sanity?
May your smile be wide Normal is overrated Let craziness reign
What’s the weirdest thing you’ve ever done?
Some folks thought the craziest thing I did was to quit my teaching job mid-year and marry a guy I hadn’t even seen in six months and take off for Germany with him. They said it wouldn’t last. That was nearly 58 years ago!
Can you recall a time when you did something that made others say, “You’re crazy?” How did it work out?
My friend, Gloria, and her husband Bob Wilson, are in Hawaii right now. I may not have had a beautiful sunset last night here in gray, cold Montana, nor a gorgeous sunrise this morning, but the Wilsons did. Thanks to the internet, their generosity, answered prayer, and miraculous cancer treatments, I could enjoy these scenes with them.
ThePhysical Beautyof Health
So, as I thank God for another visually beautiful day, I also Thank the Lord for the beauty of health. Gloria is experiencing miraculous cancer treatments (it was in her lungs and brain and lymph system). The amazing treatments have given back her life and her ability to travel and enjoy such beautiful scenes as these.
Praying for Others’ Beautiful Day
Do you have friends/family who have “Beat the Big C” or are in the process now of treatments? My cousin, Cliff, has scheduled surgery for esophageal cancer this week… and Bob’s sister, Bonnie, is seeing the doctor today about continued radiation and chemo related to breast cancer.
Thanks to our many medical advances, the “Big C” does not have to mean a death sentence these days. My husband, Bob, is an 12 year survivor of prostate cancer. He had it frozen. There are so many options for people who are diagnosed with the disease these days. We can pray and ask God for His mercy and healing, but God also expects us to do our part by becoming educated.
After Bob’s diagnosis, we called another cousin of mine who is the “Prostate Cancer Survivor Poster Child” and we asked for his advice. He sent us to YANA.org (at that time it was a website called “You Are Not Alone” where men who have been diagnosed with prostate cancer could go to learn about other men’s journey toward wellness). Now, trying to Google it, I discovered lots of YANA sites… but not the one Bob spent days where he read histories of others and learned about their treatment options, choices, and successes. There are so many places to go to get ideas. You don’t have to take the first idea the oncologist throws out at you! Be your own best advocate!
