For awhile now I have been in a quandary. I am by nature pretty happy-go-lucky but how do we brush away the troubling news we hear and see daily on our computers, radios, and televisions with so much at stake?
We can hide our heads in the sand and pretend not to see the corruption and attack on democratic ideals but history has taught us that we will pay a high price eventually for that misjudgment.
When did doing the right thing in politics become detrimental to one’s public perception ? Individual power and greed appear to hold precedence over being recognized for decency and putting others’ welfare first.
I have discovered I am not alone in this time of dismay and confusion. Kathy Giorgio decided one day to post one moment of happiness on Facebook. Soon readership grew so these observations turned into blogs and then a book.
It is a sad state of affairs if we start feeling guilty over finding joy in the daily moments of life.
Every time I feel frustrated I return to my garden where God’s presence abounds and I feel His nod and smile in welcoming new plants, new creative endeavors (like my decorated mailbox) captured moments of beauty… like these…
So until tomorrow… Help us Father find the balance and solution we need and pray for in our lives …to sustain moments of joy while protecting our precious country by reuniting core values that connect us together as the human race.
