So what are YOU thinking about today?

Good afternoon!  On this rainy dayI wanted to share with you a couple of  things on my mind and  see what you’re thinking about.

Here goes: 

  •  The execution of possibly innocent Troy Davis is on for tomorrow.  When did it become alright to kill as justice? 
  • Don’t ask/Don’t Tell was repealed last night at midnight.  Now we can honor ALL who serve this country in the name of freedom!

Its amazing how what we think about affects our days and our moods and our general well being.  Today I feel disturbed about Troy Davis, I am saddened for the policeman’s family and friends; I feel proud of those protesting and fighting for Davis’ life;  I am happy for those who can finally be their whole selves in their military careers; Finally I am thrilled I went for my run this morning in the rain!  As I have said before, each day is a new day, a new opportunity to think new thoughts and to take new actions.

So what are you thinking about today?

Check out this scripture which I thought says it all: 

Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.  Phillipians 4: 8

One Response so far.

    Beth, thanks for writing about Troy Davis AND Don’t Ask/Don’t Tell. I am so grieved about Troy that I’ve yet to be able to celebrate the ending of DADT, so thanks for the reminder.
