With all the ugliness in the world…for today, I choose to see only the beauty in it. Today I refuse to listen to the news and the gossip and instead breathe in the cool fall air and let it awaken a happy heart. Instead of the barrage of sad tales and despair I only want to hear music that lifts the spirit and encourages the soul. No angry thoughts of those who have wronged or hurt me, only prayers for a humble spirit and right attitude. No lingering over regret and self pity for my many mistakes and wrongdoings. No anxiety for what may lie ahead, only trust that God is in control. Today, I choose kindness, faith, love and healing…and coffee, lots of coffee.
