Beautiful, Cora! It reminds me of the scripture that says:

Whatever things are good & lovely & pure & right, think on these things.

How this approach to life would transform us!

That is great, Cora. It's been many years since I've read that. I need a copy of it hanging on my wall as a constant reminder!

Linda said...

Wonderful. I think we all can get something from that!

Hi Cora!

I wanted to come by and say hello and to thank you for stopping by my blog for a visit. I have read through yours too and want you to know that you are on my daily prayer list.

Thank you so much for posting The Optimist's Creed! It is such a positive thing to read and I think the more people read it and follow it, the better off our world would be!

God Bless you and you are in my prayers!

I love this and have copied it down, so that I can keep it before me as a reminder. I tend to be a pessimist and really believe that this Optimist Creed would be more the way the Lord would have us live our lives.

Thanks so much!

I found you through the rustic cottage & had to come on over to send you a word of encouragement.

As I was reading it seems you are a brave soul... strong & faithful to the Lord.

You have my thoughts today & prayers are going up for you. Remember the battle belongs to the Lord... He will comfort you.

You are an inspiration... Sending you some AuTuMn BLeSSiNgs, Pamela

Renna said...

Cora, I have no words, just to say, I'm so very sorry. I'm carrying you in my heart, and continuing to lift you in prayer before our Father.
