Whatsoever is good and lovely. I need to dwell on these things. This week has been so difficult, I am so glad I have a trust in God to carry me through. Also these thoughts that really help me. Flowers remain beautiful. Animals continue to amuse us. I can bake a cake or sit by a pond and watch ducks. There is always something positive if you look.

I have a bannana here and flour and sugar and eggs. I am thinking bannana muffins later.

I am glad that you are staying positive through all that is going on in your life right now. You are so strong and I am glad you are able to be there for your grandson and daughter. Things will get better.

I always think of the scripture at Philippians 4:8,9 where the apostle Paul says: "Finally, brothers, whatever things are true, whatever things are of serious concern, whatever things are righteous, whatever things are chaste, whatever things are lovable, whatever things are well spoken of, whatever virtue there is and whatever praiseworthy thing there is, continue considering these things. The things that you learned as well as accepted and heard and saw in connection with me, practice these and the God of peace will be with you."

That is the scripture I had in mind. If we can do this in the middle of adversity all is well.

@Jackalyn Yes, it can be a TALL order, but worth the effort.
