Thought of the Day–1/10/18

Thought of the Day— One year ago today, I started doing a “Thought of the Day” for my sister Jennifer, who was coping with stage 4 Melanoma of the brain.  As God directed my thoughts and after I scribed the thought in my Word document, I would call and leave the “Thought of the Day” on her answering machine every morning to provide some comfort, thoughts to consider or even perhaps a little chuckle for her day.

  Beginning on May 23rd, which is Jennifer’s birthday, I started to also post the “Thought of the Day’ on Facebook and my blog site on WordPress, LifeSimplySpoken.com so these thoughts could be shared with others. 

My sister passed on October 25th of 2017 and thus, I feel it is very fitting that I discontinue writing new “Thought of the Day” posts one year from when it all began.  However, beginning today, I am going to begin sharing daily the “thoughts” that only Jennifer heard, through May 22nd.   I hope that you, in the past months and in some small way, have found these words to be helpful.  They were just small gifts, presented with love, from a brother to a sister…

Clouds of resentment

Thought of the Day—So an unkind word or action was shot your way and you suddenly find yourself, the recipient of a hairline fracture to the heart.  Even though the storm clouds of resentment start rolling in, remember this.  Bitterness, resentment and revenge won’t heal that heart of yours; only time and forgiveness.  Forgiveness is the most powerful tool at your disposal to dispel those resentment clouds and is the only instrument of healing to benefit both the giver and receiver…

CORN

Thought of the Day—A person surely harvests what he or she plants…what seeds do you have either at the ready to plant or in life’s fields already?  Are they seeds of kindness or cruelty, of love or loathing, perhaps a burlap bag full of goodness instead of a threadbare sack of bitterness?  It’s up to you; just remember, in the mindset of farm to table, you could very well end up with a plateful of chaos to devour with a big slice of humble pie for dessert…
