Thank you to all those who are sharing your inspirational thoughts and spreading cheerfulness. You’re lighting up social media (Matt. 5:16)! Here’s just a glimpse of some of the good stuff going around:
–Mandy Liddell posted this poem. I need to memorize it!
“Dear Lord, may I ever refrain
From speaking ill of others;
May I have kindly thoughts, as well,
For all my earthly brothers!
May I, dear Heavenly Father,
Radiate pure love for all…
May I see good in everyone;
May I pray for those in woe…
If I can do these things, O Lord,
While I am here on this earth,
I’ll feel my life’s not been in vain—
That I was blessed at my birth!”
