I was chatting with a friend who mentioned the contrast between the peaceful state of her home with the windows all open and the noisy, messy outside world. It made me wonder if it was time for a news fast. Much of the news is depressing and it is hard to feel stable and at peace. Sometimes, I do believe you have to take a break. so here are some non-news items for your consideration:
Puppies! A pile of puppies in a corner at Wayside Waifs await new homes. Mastiff crosses--they will be big.
Funny stuff--America's Funniest Videos--some guy in the Netherlands has put together over 100 hours of pratfalls.
George Carlin, on losing stuff.
Music also, is good for getting grounded again...people's tastes are so varied, I don't know exactly what to post. How about the latest from contemporary Christian artist Steven Curtis Chapman? Catchy tune, and lyrics that are timely reminders for Christ followers...
The weather is supposed to be really nice this weekend--get out and enjoy the sun! You will improve your mood and make oodles of healthy Vitamin D.
It will all still be there whenever you decide to come back...
