Be Someone's Treasure Today

Good Morning, good morning!!!

How are things in your part of the world today?  What's on your agenda today? 

I hope you have a good day, filled with purpose.  I pray you have clarity for what needs your attention today, and peace in the decisions that must be made.  I pray you have strength and good health to meet your obligations today, and love and companionship to help along the way.

Most of all, I pray you have sweet communion with the One who made you and created you, for all things good; who knew you and loved you, before you were even born. 

It's often times hard for us today to arise in the morning thinking positive and hopeful for the day.  So much stress, so much negative emotion going on in the world.  I pray peace for you today, I pray a softening of your heart for the things that truly matter, whatever they may be in your life. I pray today that you find a wonderful treasure - a feeling, an emotion, a relationship, a trinket, a friend - that brings a smile to your face, a joy to your heart.  Something or someone who makes a difference.  

And I invite you to go out and be a treasure for someone else today.  Even for just a day.  Even for just a moment. Make a positive difference in someone's life today, even if it is your own.

For it is written, 
Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things.  Philippians 4:8 (NASB)
Or in today's words: Summing it all up, friends, I'd say you'll do best by filling your minds and meditating on things true, noble, reputable, authentic, compelling, gracious - the best, not the worst; the beautiful, not the ugly; things to praise, not things to curse.  Put into practice what you learned from me, what you heard and saw and realized.  Do that, and God, who makes everything work together, will work you into his most excellent harmonies.  (Philippians 4:8-9 The Message)

For today, let's take a time out from all the anger, backbiting and cursing of one another going on in the world.  Today, let's be a treasure! Let's concentrate on positive thinking, dwelling on true and right things.   Let's set our hearts and our heart-longings on things that matter, worthy and worthwhile things.  Let's forget about all the hate filled stuff going on and instead fill our minds and words with affirmation, compliments and praise.   Let's be ourselves a good thing.  

How about it - will you join me today - will you try to make a positive difference and be a treasure today for someone else?

Love, blessings and good things to you today,
