the optimist creed...

(promise yourself -)

to be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind.

to talk health, happiness and prosperity to every person you meet.

to make all your friends feel that that there is something in them.

to look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true.

to think only of the best, to work only for the best and to expect only the best.

to be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own.

to forget the mistakes of the past and press on to greater achievements of the future.

to wear a cheerful countenance at all times and give every living creature you meet a smile.

to give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticize others.

to be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear, and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.

Care of Our Feet
Charles H. Spurgeon



"He will keep the feet of His saints" (1 Samuel 2:9).



The way is slippery and our feet are feeble, but the LORD will keep our feet. If we give ourselves up by obedient faith to be His holy ones, He will Himself be our guardian. Not only will He charge His angels to keep us, but He Himself will preserve our goings.



He will keep our feet from falling so that we do not defile our garments, wound our souls, and cause the enemy to blaspheme.



He will keep our feet from wandering so that we do not go into paths of error, or ways of folly, or courses of the world's custom.



He will keep our feet from swelling through weariness, or blistering because of the roughness and length of the way.



He will keep our feet from wounding: our shoes shall be iron and brass so that even though we tread on the edge of the sword, or on deadly serpents, we shall not bleed or be poisoned.



He will also pluck our feet out of the net. We shall not be entangled by the deceit of our malicious and crafty foes.



With such a promise as this, let us run without weariness and walk without fear. He who keeps our feet will do it effectually.

today i sit here, waiting for rick to come home. lately, or should i say, as usual, many different theme of thoughts have been planting inside my head, trying to make a home. they are not bad, but just subjects in which i must really ponder on. subjects that are about humanity, help and need, and of myself. i've been thinking on some negative aspects of the human race, the depravity that is in all of us. this depravity that causes so many ugly things to be around us, constantly. it saddens me because, though i am not perfect, i just can't seem to understand why such things have to exist, why they are present in this world. but it all makes sense when you think of the selfishness that we are all inherently born with. i suppose it takes more effort to exude positive and good when that is not really in the base of personality, of our soul. there is so much good to seek and to give. i know even for the most personal things, i am unhappy because i am not giving truly of myself and am just trying to center myself in it all. in one of my written entries in my personal journal, ante meridiem, i expound a bit more about this subject but not nearly as much that i feel in my heart. it's something i don't want to lose in my thoughts. it's something, that at least in myself and what i can do, that i want to be aware of and do something about...



(and a bit more of the needs that are apparent in this world and what you can do....

one , oxfam , make trade fair and world vision ...see what beauty can be found in helping others in their most dire of needs...)



hearts, andrea
