Friday Challenge

Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

It is amazing what difference one's perspective can make. Your mood follows your mind and eyes. So to make this a meaningful weekend. Let's follow the Philippians prescription for a good day.

Set  your mind on these things:
  1. What is true?
  2. Honest
  3. Just
  4. Pure
  5. Lovely
  6. A Good Report
  7. Virtue
  8. Praise
Think on these things. 
I might add  what do you have to be thankful for?

The Challenge - on a notebook, or your cell phone, look around and see what you can write down that fits in these categories. Rejoice when you find them. It might be a field of beautiful wild flowers. A mockingbird singing and blessing you with its song. A white puffy cloud in a bright blue sky. Gentle rain. A person's smile. Your smile to someone who needed it. A kind word, deed. 

Look for what is good and rejoice in the Lord. 

And then see just what kind of day you had. 

Take the challenge!

Psalm 32:11
Be glad in the LORD, and rejoice, ye righteous: and shout for joy, all ye that are upright in heart.
