I have the wonderful honor of getting to be around fabulous people, like Pam who did my makeup & Christie who did my hair today. Both of these wonderful ladies & a boatload of other fantastic peeps (like Demetria, Garrett, Molly, Ivorie & more) are folk behind the scenes in tv / webland for CBN with the 700 Club. These people are magnificent in glorious ways: kind, patient, FUN & super smart!
Everyone has unique strengths & we are at our best when we are ourselves & do what we are good at. Here are some ideas that might help us as we endeavor to be our best:
Be sincere – fake & pretentious can be repulsive
Be kind – there’s more than enough cranky to go around
When I read the news, seeing all kinds of awful things going on, sometimes I want to curl up in a corner with a blanket, headphones & a good book.
And then I saw this today, which is a nice wake up call:
While I fully understand that police are flawed humans, I also appreciate that they routinely put their lives at risk to protect and serve. I like that this lady expresses her love with such sincerity & I hope I can be as authentic and sincere 🙂
The world in which we live has some people who do some really crazy things – holding their breath for multiple minutes for deep water diving, wrestling with aligators, playing polo with a sheep head & lots of even crazier things! Who does that kind of stuff???
Here’s a quiz. Who does this kind of stuff?
disagrees with the religious & cultural norms
touches disease infested people, endeavoring to make them better
welcomes everyone who is ostracized, outcast and isolated
seemingly abandons his friends at the very worst possible time
does everything within his power to help people, even when they’re ungrateful
