|Calligraphy by Michael Noyes|
So much bad news.
Yesterday in the area where I live, the body of a little newborn baby boy was found among the trash at a recycling center. My heart hurts...with so many couples longing for a child, someone considers a baby just so much trash.
The Penn State scandal shows perversion and abuse of innocence can be allowed to go on unchecked. People that are in power, that are in a position to stop it, simply look the other way. How many children could have been spared if Penn State officials had done the right thing?
So much political turmoil. What's going to become of our nation in the next few years? Will we lose the essence of what America is all about?
We can't ignore tragic, frightening or ugly events...nor should we bury our heads in the sand. But there is an antidote for every child of God. Phillipians 4:8.
Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
[I love the calligraphy above, by Michael Noyes (you can purchase that print on his site).]
I'm committing that verse to memory and have made it my life verse.
As a radio news person, I have to often call on that verse for comfort and hope when the news gets too ugly, sad and depressing.
And I want my life to be about highlighting all the good things in that verse.
