Happy Tuesday to you!

What can I say during such tumultuous times in our country and in our world? Sometimes, it is best to not speak at all. Sometimes, it is best to grieve silently with those who mourn. At all times, it is necessary to pray for strength, comfort, peace, and help to live righteously. If you are a fellow blogger, use your voice to encourage and uplift your readers. If you have children, do your best to love them and teach them to love others as themselves. Observe the people in your life. If you sense that they are losing hope, strengthen them with your words and actions. Make sure that this holiday season every person you know is well-fed. Purchase gifts for persons you know are unable to afford Christmas presents. Be a source of good in this world. Do good privately, as well as publicly. Do not give up hope. Do not grow weary of life. Give without expecting anything in return. Live a life of gratitude. Many blessings to you.



2 Corinthians 1:Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God. For as we share abundantly in Christ's sufferings, so through Christ we share abundantly in comfort too. If we are afflicted, it is for your comfort and salvation; and if we are comforted, it is for your comfort, which you experience when you patiently endure the same sufferings that we suffer. Our hope for you is unshaken, for we know that as you share in our sufferings, you will also share in our comfort.
