Sunday Inspiration: Be Soft

Be soft

“Be soft. Do not let the world make you hard. Do not let pain make you hate. Do not let bitterness steal your sweetness. Take pride that even though the rest of the world may disagree, you still believe it to be a beautiful place.” -Iain Thomas

    As I enter into the final decades of my life, I realize how hard one must sometimes fight to make this true.

      I’m with you! Getting older is not for the weak is it?

    Amen Emilie!

    It’s been 11 years since I’ve retired after two minor strokes. And I still struggle to find my direction and purpose in this part of my life. It’s hardest when I wake up in the morning to feel energized and purposeful. After an hour or two I feel grateful that God has given me another day to look for what he wants me to do. And amen

    I turned 70 today! I do hope I can continue not hating
    Or turning bitter! Time goes by way too quickly!

    As hard as life can be when we get older,Please. try to find something to do that gives us pleasure. I love to read and a good book along with a cup of coffee or tea gives me a great deal of happiness. I’m jhappy that I can watch Hallmark Murders and mysteries. Murder She Wrote is on at 11:00pm every weeknight along with other wonderful programming.
