Day 282 in my attitude adjustment, as I try to grow, while I wait to meet up with Mickey Mouse at Magic Kingdom in October
Today my plan was to get up and go to church. I planned to open my heart to whatever God had for me there; whatever healing, whatever mercy, whatever message, whatever. I went; God showed up, as he promises to do every time. I am feeling blessed.
I want to share a saying I saw on FaceBook and Pinterest today: “I really just want to be the warm yellow light that pours out all over everyone I love.” It is credited to Melissa Garcia from her Pinterest site called Quotes and Things. Check it out. I looked at her Pinterest site for 20 seconds and I was hooked. I am now a follower.
“I really just want to be the warm yellow light that pours out all over everyone I love.” I love this! I hope and pray to be that for those I love. I have some GREAT examples in my life: my brother Gene and his lovely wife Patsy, my cousin Lyn, my daughter Emi, my friend Shelly and many more. They have a gift for seeing the positive side of things, of seeing the good beyond the bad. They are real silver lining, glass half-full people in my life and I am so grateful for them!
I know there are those who would say, “What a Pollyanna attitude! What a bunch of Pollyannas!” Have you every seen the Disney movie, Pollyanna? It’s such a great portrait of what a positive attitude can do in life. Here’s what Internet Movie Database (IMDb) has to say about it: “A young girl comes to an embittered town and confronts its attitude with her determination to see the best in life.” Holy wah! Is that cool, or what? The movie has a great cast including: Hayley Mills, Jane Wyman and Richard Egan. Check it out, if you can find it. I love it, and will watch it again soon.
So I have decided to own being a Pollyanna. I am going to revel in it. I am going to wallow in it. From now on, I choose to believe the best about people and about situations. God can use every person and every situation to His glory. I claim it, and I believe it.
Jump on this bandwagon with me, dear readers. Let’s let God be the light that shines through us to others. Woop woop!
Meet you at the Kingdom!

I want you to know that you ARE a positive light to us all. You always have been. I took you for granted and never told you. You are a loving, kind, supportive, giving light of many of our lives!!
I love you and admire you more than you could ever know.
Many many people do. You are a gift from God .
If I am the cousin Lyn that you are talking about, I thank you but I am not that good. I fall way short everyday. But thank you! Smiling!! But you are awesome!

You are the cousin Lyn I’m talking about. You have the biggest heart I know. Just look at all those babies and grandbabies. You are a picture of grace, and when I look at you I see Jesus. I fall short every day too. It’s what brings me to church on Sundays. I need that fresh start every week. I also need my devotions each morning to make it through the day. Gosh, Lyn, if God can use Rahab in the Bible, he can surely use you and me. I love you, Cousin.
