EAT THE BROWNIES!

WHY!?!

This is another questioning blog today.  Why, Why, Why must people only look on the dark, ugly, nasty and gloomy side of life?  They wake up mad, go through the day spewing hate and bad breath (I just imagine) and then go to bed mad.

Why!?

Circumstance?  Past?  Baggage?  Constipation?  Upset stomach?

If you gave them a plate of chocolate chip cookies and told them have a happy day…they would think or even say, “I prefer brownies.”  Ok, if you gave them a plate of the best BROWNIES -in-the-world with a smiley face balloon and a chilly glass of milk… they would say, “I’m trying to watch what I eat.”   Really!?!  IT IS BROWNIES!  (the best ones in the world even)

I’m pretty sure you get my point.

WHY!?!

Is this day so bad that you have to TRY (cuz it ain’t happening to this gal) and make others have a bad day too?  Would that actually make you “happy?”  OR would that somehow make your life, in some sick weird way, more meaningful?

NO.  I’m telling you right now, that is a NO.  Negative. Never, absolutely not, uh-uh and not at all.

Yes, I’m answering my own questions here.  It’s ok.  I do that sometimes.

It is most emphatically and positively truth that ATTITUDES ARE CONTAGIOUS.  Is yours worth catching?  When people look at me, I want them to WANT what I got!  I’m not hiding my light under a bushel–NO!  I’m gonna let it shine!  I am not extinguishing the fire of JOY the Almighty God has given me to share.  No way!  I’m gonna pass it out like goody bags at a birthday party!  Here’s one for you and you and you…

FREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE YOURSELF from the past baggage or circumstance that is darkening your days. Have a HAPPY!  Here, take a smile.  Do you need a hug?  Let go of whatever is making you look for the opposite of happy.  Take some Milk of Magnesia!  Whatever you gotta do!!!  But colon cleanse that nasty attitude OUT before you end up living your life alone or worse…with another stopped up negative nilly who can only compound the unhappiness in your life.  (Misery loves company? Eeeek!)

Do whatever you gotta do!!! Did I say that already?  Repetition means IT’S IMPORTANT!

Don’t be one of those people that can’t find happy anywhere…

DIG DEEP! Trudge through it.  Dust it off, wipe it away… until you find that treasure called HAPPINESS and …

JUST BE HAPPY.

(and eat the dadgum brownies!!!)

Let’s be POSITIVE!

Let’s be POSITIVE.

LET’S BE POSITIVE!

STOP looking to those who like to yell and holler about what makes them upset and seek PEACE.

STOP lifting up those who think negative posts and comments are awesome as they reach out for others to feed the fire of their negativity.  Instead, let’s spread more LOVE.

How about keep the grumpiness to yourself and let it die within you instead of allowing it to explode and splatter on all of those around you?

How about seek the truth before spreading lies and making up rumors about whatever you think happened?

We need to be THE LIGHT.

We need to show others the way.

Can we please stop jumping on the bandwagon of she said, he said, they did or didn’t and ride the ENERGY BUS?

Can we spread the POSITIVE energy through doing good things, not jumping to conclusions and being a happy person?

Let’s ride down that road, take that path and bring others with us!

LET’S BE POSITIVE!

Sound right…people listen.

I listened to TEDtalks on my 3 mile walk this morning. YES, I WALKED THREE MILES! YAY!
Below is the talk I enjoyed the most. We have such POWER with our words. This guy makes some awesome points. You want people to listen??? Want to spread sunshine and lightness in the world? I DO!

THE LIGHTHOUSE

pigeon-point-lighthouse-at-night

There’s a lighthouse on the hillside
That overlooks life’s sea.
When I’m tossed it sends out a light,
Tis a light that I might see.
And the light that shines in darkness now
Will safely lead us o’er.
If it wasn’t for the lighthouse,
My ship would be no more.

And I thank God for the lighthouse,
I owe my life to Him.
For Jesus is the lighthouse
And from the rocks of sin;
He has shone a light around me
That I could clearly see,
If it wasn’t for the lighthouse
Tell me where would this ship be.

This gospel song was written in 1971 by Ronnie Hinson.  Ir won the coveted Dove and Fan Award for Song of the Year in 1972.  That was the year I was born!   That is pretty cool.  This song holds a place in my heart, because it was one of the first ones I learned to sing with an accompaniment tape.  ((YES, A TAPE!—OLD SCHOOL!))  Also, this song is a song that is one of the favorites of a wonderful lady at our church who is our oldest member and is an awesome mentor and example to all the women in our church AND REALLY TO ALL at our church, not just the women.

The entire song (this is an excerpt above) talks about Jesus being a lighthouse.  We refer to Jesus as so many things for us, but this imagery of He being a LIGHTHOUSE is so perfect to me.  He shines his light so we may see …and we can get where we need to go.  We are like that ship.  Sometimes we are in rocky water.  Sometimes we are in rough, crazy and chaotic water.  Sometimes we are in the still waters.  No matter the waters (the circumstances of our lives), we should always keep an eye on that light AND HELP SHINE THAT LIGHT TO OTHERS.

I want to not only sing this song, but SHOUT IT!
I thank God for the lighthouse!  I owe my life to Him!  He is the lighthouse!  He saves us from the rocks of sin!  He shines his light all around us so we can see!  If it wasn’t for him, this ship would be lost!  Amen!

Thank You Jesus for being the Lighthouse.  I need you daily.  I’m so thankful You cover my sin, because I know I sin daily.  Thank You for being the light in my dark world!

Thank You God for giving Mr. Hinson this song. (I read he wrote it in his late teens on toilet paper. Divine messages can come at anytime and be written down on anything!  YES!)

Jesus is THE LIGHT

We had our candlelight service tonight…

The true light, which gives light to everyone, was coming into the world. (John 1:9 ESV)
