Week 18 – Happy!

Many years ago, I color coded my Bible with pencil crayon.  Whenever I read anything about the mind or thoughts, I colored it red.  I colored a lot of verses red.

This is one verse that I have always remembered:

“Whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable-if anything is excellent or praiseworthy-think about such things.”  Philippians 4:8.

These are magnificent words of encouragement for today, and every day.

When I think about such things, and dwell on them, and focus on them, my days are happy.  Very happy.  I see beauty all around me, in people and in nature.  I see courage in others, and in myself.  I see kindness and love, and I give kindness and love, and then I see even more kindness and love.

When I speak about such things, out loud to others, together we get to experience happy, soul-rejuvenating moments in our days.  Our spirits are lifted.  There is a bounce in our step, and joy in our hearts.

This is being a light in the darkness, and isn’t the light beautiful!

Love and Big Hugs,

  1. Monica,
    Your blog was very uplifting and I enjoyed the scripture verse in Philippians. This book in the Bible is amazing and has so many wonderful nuggets to reflect on. Scripture always has a way of inspiring and encouraging me each day. Being able to give kindness, love, and compassion to others really makes your world a lot brighter. It also teaches you so many wonderful lessons.
