Today as I was writing in my journal and reflecting on the previous week. I was thinking that I have so much to be thankful for. This past week I started my goal of meditating daily for 10 minutes a day. I am happy to report that I only missed 2 days this week. I have already noticed a difference in how I feel,my ability to fall asleep quicker, and when I wake up at night I can easily get myself back to sleep using some of the techniques I have learned. As I was reflecting on the past week I thought about the election. I am thankful for the opportunity to vote, the country I live in and religious freedom. I also noticed all the negativity we get wrapped up in when things don’t go our way. This affects us all, even my youngest daughter was scared that one of her friends was going to have to leave the country. We had to do a lot of explaining here. I have had to really be mindful of not letting this get to me and not letting my daughters see and hear all of this negativity.
My husband posted this message on Facebook yesterday and it is so true:
“I normally don’t post things on facebook. I use it to see how others are doing but when I opened the Bible this morning it said this “let each one of you speak truth with his neighbor for we are members of one another. Be angry but do not sin…..And be kind to one another, tender hearted, forgiving one another even as god in Christ forgave you.” After this last week, I just thought I would share.”
The part that stood out the most is to “Be angry but do not sin.” We need to be kind, understanding and compassionate to one another. We have so much to be thankful for and I truly feel that spreading kindness, being tender hearted, and forgiving is what I need to do right now.
Be kind to one another. Do something nice for someone today totally unexpected!
I hope you all have a great Sunday.
