Find something great....
in this times of dark news.
This week’s challenge set by Mark was to find something great which needs to be shared.
One of my favourite sayings which I get a lot of comfort from is ‘turn an end into a beginning’.
Things come to an end because we want them to, but sometimes the end is thrust upon us and is very unsettling and sad.
But I find it comforting to believe it may just be a blessing in disguise and a positive may arise from it.
This week the great thing I heard, which stayed with me, was said by a 72 year old woman who was on the tv programme Blind Dates. She had been brought up within a strict brethren community but at the age of 62 she found the strength to divorce her husband whom she had married as a very young woman as part of her relgious community. Her words of wisdom struck a chord with me… she said, in response to a question about her religious beliefs that “love is my religion”.
In these frightening times of religious crimes and terrorism, if we all lived by this belief we wouldn’t go far wrong.
