Thought of the Day–3/23/18

Thought of the Day—Believe it or not, the only constant in life is change and that is a very good thing.  If we never allowed God to change our attitudes and behaviors, we could never be molded into what He had intended for us to be.  So as you face another of life’s challenges head on, have faith that God actually knows what He is doing.  Just consider your pain and tears, your loss or your trials as life experiences that can be transformed into uniquely hued embroidery floss, applied by God to the beautiful, intricate and very ornate tapestry of your life.  Allow Him to delicately but deliberately interweave the ordinary into something quite extraordinary…YOU…

Thought of the Day—Don’t you just love spring?  Watching flowers pushing their way up out of the ground and blossoms blooming on the branches of trees and shrubs give everyone a renewed sense of hope and the promise of warmer days ahead.  Don’t you just find the feeling that the spring season invokes irresistible?  There is something else that brings about a similar feeling; recognition.  Just a simple “thank you”, “I appreciate what you do” or “good job” can lift a person’s spirit and bring a smile to their face.  It can make a difference in someone’s work performance, overall attitude or even general behavior.  And it’s free; it costs you nothing, nada, zilch! Give it a try and watch what happens; you just may be surprised by the response from your coworker, friend, neighbor, stranger OR your own family member.  After all, every day God gives us a visual “I think you’re pretty special”, by providing us with all the grandeur that nature provides.  Can’t you take the time to give a special “shout out” to those around you?  Kind words are like honey, sweet to the soul and healthy for the body. Proverbs 16:24 (NLT)
