I think I must live in my own little heaven on earth. I know what goes on outside of my own home (in the rest of the world), but within my home, we all get along and support one another. No, I don't take it for granted. There was a good portion of my life spent in a lack of peace. Knowing how blessed I am, I see a need for compassion on a global scale...something that is lacking.
I made a comment on a friend's profile on Facebook about one of the hot button issues that she had incorrect information about. The discussion started and soon there was a thread. One person in the thread brought up as "fact" something that a celebrity had been posting on their social media about this issue. We cannot get facts from our own government, from media, from our neighbors. How do we think we are getting facts from celebrities?
Things can be so frustrating because they are so confusing! I used to be really involved in current events...really involved. Then, after years of blogging about current events, finding all kinds of holes in stories being reported, and finally realizing that there were agendas to EVERYTHING, I stepped aside. I prefer a life of peace. I still learn and stay aware, but I prefer a life of peace. I don't want to be a pawn in someone else's chess game.
I send love out to all of you who read this. It is important. It's super important. Love one another. The world can change for the better if we just love one another. It starts in our homes. Set an atmosphere of love in your home and you will find it radiates outward into everything you do.
