#TuesdayTreasures Freedom

Good Morning Friends,

My scheduled guest couldn't be here so I'm winging it today.

Yesterday marked the 16th anniversary of 9/11 and I'm sure you've seen posts all over encouraging us to never forget and to honor those lives lost in the attacks.

All good advice.

However, I'm going to encourage you to remember the outpouring of love and the way most of our country turned back to God. The same kind of generosity of spirit that has poured out in the last few weeks due to hurricanes and fires and earthquakes.

As a spiritual seeker, I am continually amazed at the books and songs and reminders which assure us As we THINK, we ARE.

If we keep focusing on the bad, we'll perpetuate more and more bad.

However if we focus on the inherent good in mankind, the greatness of our country, the beauty of our planet, the abundance of our universe, the absolute love and benevolence of God....you get my drift... we will see more and more evidence of those things in our lives (goodness, greatness, beauty, abundance, benevolence).

What's all this have to do with freedom, you ask.

Because in this one thing, we have more freedom and more power than we imagine: the freedom to choose what we think about!

So remember and honor, say a prayer, then turn your focus to what's * true *honest *pure *lovely *of good report *virtuous and *praise worthy knowing this is what will help heal America.

Something to think about!
"Inspirational with an Edge!" 

Hope you enjoyed today's post and that you'll join me each week for Tuesday Treasures, Thursday Thoughts and Saturday Spotlight.

Until next time, take care and God bless!

*Philippians 4:8

You are so spot on, Pamela! We humans have a lot more in common than we have that's different, the major one being we are all children of God.

Those of us who live in the suburbs of NY (NJ in my case) happen to know people who died in the towers, good, decent people. It remains painful for many of us. We remember these fine people with love in our hearts.

Thanks Alina!

Yes, I know, Jacquie and that's wonderful.

Thanks Alicia!

Wise words, Pamela. I'd also add, that even when a few bad thoughts intrude despite good intentions, we also still have a choice about we say aloud. If a few more folks would bite their tongues before speaking (something my grandmother advocated), and listen instead, it would certainly help. I'd pick on opinion and news reporters to lead the way, but I'm not sure they'd have it in their heart to cooperate. :D
