Optimism on purpose...

Okay... so the title has no bearing to, well, anything, but I like it. I've had a good week so far. Yesterday was fun. Bible study last night, was very encouraging. I really love these women!!

One of them, who shall remain initial-less sent me a sweet and funny email this morning which I will be promptly adding to my prayer list each night:

BP with BP!

I also love that she signs each email with XOXO. Seriously... love it.

And, I do want BP with BP. Yes, I do!
Last night, we were talking about negative emotions, anxiety, and fear. The question was posed:

What do you worry about? And WHY?

We all had our own responses. We all worry about different things, but the commonality is that, we all worry. Some more obsessive than others, but we ALL worry. My mom even called this morning and she and I prayed Philippians 4:6-7... "Be anxious for NOTHING..."

So, I'm trying. :) I did find this quote in helping me keep my focus and thought it appropriate to share.

"We can keep two things in mind at once. Indeed, we cannot keep one thing in mind more than half a second. Mind is a flowing something. It oscillates. Concentration is merely the continuous return to the same problem from a million angles. So my problem is this: can I bring God back to my mindflow every few seconds so that God shall always be in my mind as an after-image, shall always be one of the elements in every concept and precept? I choose to make the rest of my life an experiment in answering this question." Frank Laubach

Paul said "We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ." (Letter to Romans, Chapter 10, verse 5)
