It’s been a big week. I celebrated another birthday and the election is finally over. There are lots of things I could say about both events, but, you know what? I’m moving on.
Instead of bemoaning the fact that I’m now 53 and whining over the aging process, today I’m going to revel in the realization that I’m alive and healthy and in my right mind (most of the time).
Instead of being dismayed that it was a whopping thirty years ago that I first became a mother, today I will delight in my adult children and rejoice that they still return my phone calls.
Instead of debating about which candidate had all the answers to the weak job market and the struggling economy, today I’m going to go to my office, do my job, and then stop at the store on my way home and buy a few groceries.
Instead of wringing my hands over the decline in moral values and Biblical standards in our society, today I’m going to live with a high level of integrity and pray for my neighbors.
Instead of watching Wall Street and sweating over the Dow Jones Average, today I’m going to invest in each person I meet by depositing a kind word and a smile.
Sometimes the best thing to do is move on.
But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called Today. Heb. 3:13
amen. Can I share the “instead of” on FB? So worth repeating.

Sounds like you have been taking lessons from the Masters family — our fearless leader is often referred to as “Mark Move-on Masters”!
No matter what….who…. tries to dethrone Him, God is still on the throne, always has been and always will be. Your loving words and sweet smile only reinforces that fact. Thanks for being you for all of your 53 years!!
