Just for this week.

The following excerpt is from this week's church bulletin.

"Imagine a world in which everyone respected everyone and everything.  A world where no one complained.  Where everyone took each moment of each day as it came along and just thanked the Lord for the gift.  Where we truly saw our neighbors as companions on a journey.  If we could do that what a different world it would be ...

Make this week the 7 days we promise not to say anything but positive things.  If the pressure gets to be too much, write the complaints down on a sheet of paper and hold them until next week.  Chances are when we get to 'next week' we have forgotten all about them ... this is the week for Happy Christians...just the way the Lord made us to be!    (Fr. JVJ - 8/26/12)

This certainly struck me, I just had to share.  Something worth thinking about, something worth trying. 

God bless.
