    lol. Our daughter did that when she was two, trying to get a close look at everything…

    The key is to not let “the news” affect your happiness. Happiness is important.

    Corollary, since most here are Bible believing Christians: Cultivate a Christian joy, and understand the difference between that and happiness.

    Another BIG GOOF from our Senile President.. Releasing a Looser for an American MURDERER.
    Biden’s prisoner swaps are setting a terrible precedent, Perhaps more than any administration of either side in recent history, the Biden administration has prioritized the release of American citizens arbitrarily detained overseas. Countries such as Russia , Afghanistan , Iran , and Venezuela have increasingly resorted to arresting and holding American citizens as political bargaining chips This swap has been his worse move of them all. Trading Russian arms dealer for Griner is a real,tragic mistake, The deal would embolden Putin to continue using hostage diplomacy to achieve his anti-American agenda. The Biden administration may bring two Americans home, scoring much needed political points — at a time the president’s popularity is at historic lows — but it will endanger many more Americans in the future and harm U.S. security. Lets face it, it was a What a dumb & DANGEROUS trade.
    Lets face it, he didn’t release her. He traded Merchant of Death for her. You know, the guy responsible for many conflicts and thousands of innocent deaths?
    In exchange, the Biden administration released Bashir Noorzai, a Bad Ass Afghan heroin trafficker also known as the “Pablo Escobar of heroin.” At the time of his arrest Noorzai was considered one of the biggest drug traffickers in the world, and a close confidant of Mullah Muhammad Omar, the Taliban’s supreme leader

    SILVERFIDDLE: For most of us Christian believers, you’ve probably (among all your excellent comments over the years here and at your blog) not said anything WISER or MORE IMPORTANT:

    “….since most here are Bible believing Christians: Cultivate a Christian joy, and understand the difference between that and happiness.”

    SOmething even many Christians don’t really grasp is the huge difference between HAPPINESS and JOY in our faith…..

    Thank you for so well wording a very important reminder…..it’s honestly what I cling to….but I DO have my moments in spite of it…I must admit I can get down about our country and haven’t been more so until lately.
    Thanks.

    Hi, MARKONE!…Yes, that’s quite a look, isn’t it 🙂

    BUNKERVILLE…Oh, my gosh!!

    I had 2 kitties years ago who, when they saw their first Christmas tree at my house, climbed UP the tree!! Right up the trunk!

    In the night, I’d hear ornaments crash to the floor…..Bang! Bash! I told friends it was like being in Hanoi during the war!
    I learned not to put the breakables anywhere near the bottom of the tree!!!

    At least they did not pee at the base. I could never put my tree skirt down again after one cat did that. Not as long as she lived. They remember!

    We are also told to delight in the Lord. I heard a neurobiologist (who runs a research lab at Stanford) say that when things are the worst, you cannot find “joy” in anything, they found brains light up when people could hone in on something that gave them “delight.”

    BAYSIDER AND SF;

    I will never forget when a 90 year old member of my BIble study core group told me she had a heart transplant 17 years ago, on the East Coast, because of the rare disease Mr. Z died from….we’d been just starting talks of a transplant ourselves, VERY early days of that discussion….

    She said she thanked her heart surgeon for saving her life…. this amazing surgeon told her:
    “I just cut and sew my patients up….GOD does the healing”.

    wow
