Yin and Yang

We ended the day yesterday with news of yet another school massacre in the States...this time in Texas.  Things are escalating.  Not only did they have shooters, there were bombs discovered as well.  Someone intended major destruction this time.  
We began the day today with the Royal Wedding of Harry and Meaghan.  A light of hope in a darkening world.  So much more pleasant to talk of dresses and fascinators, crowds and music, menus and horses, queens and princes than it is to talk of the death of children and destruction of property.

  1. I agree, it is so beneficial to think of the positive. I work against the dark as I can, but love diversions like the royal wedding or admiring a flower. A favorite Scripture is Philippians 4:8 which tells us "whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right ... if anything is excellent or praiseworthy - think about such things." That verse is helpful to me.

  2. Two days different as day and night. What a beautiful wedding it was. The love emanating between them brought tears to my eyes. We need more love and positivity in this world.

  3. Yes. How I long for the day when the dark is less prevalent.

  4. Light overcomes dark. We need to keep shining more light.

  5. Plenty of people wonder why the big fuss over the royal wedding, why so many hours of tape are taken, why the media record every detail. Well, this is the kind of good news reporting that lifts people up and provides a bit of counterbalance to the dark stories. So many good news stories don't make it to the public eye. It's nice when one does. Because there are always going to be the bad news stories.

    I saw a clip of an interview of a girl at that school. The reporter asked if she ever thought it would happen at her school. She said yes. The reporter seemed surprised and pressed her, "Yes? Why" She said she always thought it was just a matter of time. How sad is that, for the children of the United States to feel that way?

  7. I am trying so hard to not think of the horror in Texas and that wedding yesterday was a good respite. Now back to the reality of my country falling apart in so many ways.

  8. I read both stories in my newspaper this morning, one made me smile, the other made me sad.
