We have a life and death situation in Texas because of power outages and low temperatures.
I texted my friend Mya, and she texted me back, “We are safe. Thank God. We have no electricity, but that is a small inconvenience.”
Mya is happy and shares with anyone how blessed she feels.

As you can guess, Mya is not living in paradise, but she focuses on what she can control.

While waiting at the supermarket's self-checkout line, I eavesdropped on two women talking about their men. One said, “he is a narcissist,” the other responded, “my third husband …he was a mean son of the devil.”
I don’t know the two women, but I’m always ready to get writing materials from strangers and things. As I observed the women talking, one of them positioned herself as a special and unique person. She quickly flashed an, ‘I am in charge’ smile, and I reciprocated and complimented her killer leopard loafers. I thought, “a kettle calling a pot, black.”

Love is a verb
Love works every day.
Love shows up 365 days
Love is action
Love is what we do
Listen to understand
Help when needed
Steadfast in a time of trouble
Never violence, or hateful, or cheating.
Love makes me better
It requires efforts
Not a theory.
“ Love itself cost a lot more than long-stemmed roses or even diamonds. Real love is measured out in steadiness, commitment, and unselfishness over the long haul. ” — Earnie Larsen & Carol Hegarty

A painful story and a lesson for the living. Your feeling is normal and worth expressing.
Self-reflecting on my role in the world. And I continue to believe in the goodness of the people and the world.
This is a powerful story for me to read on Sunday morning. Thanks for blessing me and others.
To come back to the story, I couldn’t help but add a brief comment, “my reaction is fueled by how wrong and cruel what happened was. I believe that having a conscience should be our compass instead of the fear of punishment.”

Bold and refreshing!
As humans, we can choose to open our ears and eyes and question things front and center.
Foolishness is the order in today's world. Your religion makes you believe not to kill the fetus, but make you to kill a doctor or people you don't like.
Thanks for writing. I follow the life of Jesus Christ--love and help the needy, not the pastors.
4. When individuals could not cure themselves, they relied on witchcraft. Once science found the cure, witchcraft got extinguished. Once in a while, so many diseases were considered due to superstition. But they have now the full scientific proof of psychological disorder.

Lives and things can change
An Imperfect woman gets a recommendation,
Offers a job, and helps others
Her book becomes a bestseller.
Love is always an action
When we work together
We can help ourselves and others
Accommodating our differences
And change the world for better.
