Movie Night

OK..this is not intended to be a movie review...but I am saying that my sweet little wife and I had a great movie night last night watching this movie, "The Blind Side." It was really nice to sit back on the couch with a bowl of popcorn...lots of butter, of course...and just have something to watch that was positive and entertaining. Take the time out of your busy and stressed filled life to just relax and enjoy life with someone you care about. Push all of the negative stuff out of your mind and forget about all of the stuff you have to do. Trust me...it WILL be there waitin on you tomorrow. Anyway...find time to see some of the sights along your path and enjoy them with those you care about while you can. We never know about tomorrow so enjoy your life TODAY.

Have a really great week!

Beautiful Day...

Gosh...what a beautiful day today in southern Indiana...! A simple thing to be thankful for but I am very thankful nonetheless.
I enjoyed being outside working on the cabin for my sweet wife...!
I met some really nice people in the antique shop...!
I am spending the evening just relaxing and enjoying having a weekend to ourselves.
I think it helps to slow down and just look around us to see how blessed we are...
...then take the time to thank the One from whom all blessings flow...!
Have a great weekend....!

Take in the good...

OK...my guess is that there are others out there like me who are sick of listening to the news broadcast and all of the things that "someone" has decided to be news worthy.

My question is this, Who decided all of that negative garbage is news...?

I really am not interested in hearing about who killed whom, or what politician or sports person is cheating on their spouse this week. Aren't there people out there doing good things to help their neighbor and being a real friend to someone?

It isn't any wonder that so many people are depressed these days and can't seem to find happiness. I would suggest that at least part of the problem might be all of the garbage that we are bombarded with through the media, news broadcasts, and even our music. Now we even have to take it with us on our phones. Oh, I better not get started on phones....that is a topic for another day. Anyway...all of that to say this...

I believe you will have a better week if you block out the junk and just "take in the good."

Have a great week!

Just an old barn...

There is just something about an old barn...
An old barn like this gives me a warm feeling of nostalgia. It doesn't have to be big or shiny and new. It may even be a little run down.
It brings memories of a simpler time when people were moving slow enough to actually see what was alongside the road. I'm afraid in today's run, run lifestyle, many people not only don't see what's alongside the road, but they don't care what's there, or what they might be missing.
Very sad that we've become so busy we can't take the time to enjoy the beauty of what is around us. Make it a point to enjoy the beautiful things around you today because they could be gone tomorrow. It may be people, it may be God's creation, or it may just be an old barn alongside the road!
