  5. Redeem the time as best I can…which includes praying for my family and writing friends (like you:) and tutoring a student in reading comprehension. My prayer is that I would be a blessing to others. It helps my keep my focus off myself.Blessings to you and your readers,Karen

  6. Diane: Showing appreciation is SO important. :) Karen: Thank you for your prayers! I really appreciate them. :) Focusing on the needs of others is a great way to find a ton of motivation. :)Blessings to you!

  7. Tell someone that I love them? Yep, that will elicit a smile. If that fails, at least it will get them emotional in some way. :P

  8. A: I'm going to remember, as best I can, in each moment the promises and faithfulness of the One who calls me.A: I'm going to respond to the gentle poking and whispered "pssst" that echos in my mind.A: I'm going to actually THINK, when I respond, to what is happening and how best God's glory would be shown in my responses/reactions.Whew!! That was a mind-bender…but a heart lifter!Thanks…for both this and for your visit to my place.:) Bina

  9. Hmmmm, really great question!! I'm going to keep my eyes open and look at people. I'm too busy, so busy that I don't notice when someone needs a hand. Your right, there are so many little things that make a big difference!

  10. Daga: Remember, we are working on positive emotions here. ;) :P Susan: Actually, writing a note to a friend is a great way to show you love them! And we can never underestimate the power of prayer. :) Bina: A lot of times we don't really "think" about what we're doing. We just live. That's fine, but to make an impact we often really have to think through the choices we make. :)Alexis: I tend to get overly busy too! It's just so easy! :P

  11. Cindy: In this world, with all the stresses, that can be hard. Sometimes we just need practice! :) M: I hope the school event goes well! And I'm sure your boys will appreciate your work. :) Tyrean: Embracing the life God has given us is often the first step! That's when we start looking for ways to use what we have. :)

  12. I'm going to listen to my 7yr old tell all about his video game without letting my eyes glaze over.Then listen to his bedtime prayers.
