Your thoughts, words and deeds are painting the world around you. – Jewel Diamond Taylor –
I’m not overly political, I must admit and I’m taking no side in this post but this quote gave me pause for thought. It seems I can’t pick up a paper, click on a website, or listen to television or radio without angry thoughts becoming angry words and deeds.
It is always somebody’s fault . . . or somebody else’s . . . does it matter in the end who the blame ultimately belongs to? We are changing the world around us with fighting in the White House and fighting in the churches and fighting in the grocery store parking lot and the classrooms where our children learn . . .
Where’s it getting us? What did our forefathers fight for?
What color is peace?
WELL SAID, MARTHA!!
Wow, when I wrote this I wasn’t thinking of something on tonight’s news which is on next to me, but just now an ad ran for a story on tomorrow’s broadcast. First I’ve heard of it. “Pistols in the pulpit, story at . . . ” How sad!
Sadly, I’m not surprised, Sis–I remember being shocked at school shootings, and then totally dumbfounded by church shootings. I can’t wrap my head around any of it–but it about kills me when, on occasion, I call my former pastor and friend in NE, tell the receptionist my name and connection to him–and they still can’t tell me when he’ll be in to take my call, for “security reasons”. It’s not “him”, it’s just the way it has to be these days…
Yep, sad it is Sis. We shall push on and pray!
