I would like to start something new here on Momsie. I was stuffing my washer with laundry this morning, and then noticed my grimy, GRIMY laundry floor. When sweeping up the floor, I decided to shake out the rug outside. In doing so, I wearily observed how ratty and tired my yard looked. I then proceeded into the kitchen to find some bags for possibly raking leaves (how in the world would I find time for that?) and then crunched through the Cheerios stuck to the kitchen floor. I then attempted to start de-gluing them from the floor and viewed, again, that my kitchen chairs badly needed to be cleaned or even reupholstered, a task I have been meaning to do for ages.
And then. I just sat down on the floor and prayed. Overwhelmed. You see, earlier that morning, I had heard on the news about another family of small children abandoned, alone. I walked past a blaring TV with angry congressmen, arguing (I must admit; I just turned it off). I scrolled through my newsfeed that tells me of endless assaults and poverty and cancer and betrayal.
I am surrounded by sadness and just, badness.
We all are.
I forget to look for the goodness.
So, when the time permits and the spirit moves, I will post something good. Something lovely. Something to just make us smile.
8 Finally, brothers and sisters, 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. NIV
Do you have a favorite moment of goodness from the great and mighty inter webs? Feel free to email it to me! I would love to post.
