I met that lady this morning. She was singing happily with her hands beating the time. She was wearing a shiny red top with a colorful necklace. If no one told you before, you can’t imagine that she is a cancer patient and perhaps could live for only six months. I can’t imagine if I am sentenced to have cancer, how can I survive the left six months. But this lady recorded her musical CD and sang for many people ever since. Seeing the big smile on her face, I think this is the most beautiful woman in the world.

Barney and Robbie are an old couple. They have been through a lot. But finally they go together. Robbie has serious diabetes and with his old age, he sometimes falls in coma for long time. Whenever that happens, Barney never complains. Neither does Robbie. They never complain that it is unfair to them after they have suffered a lot when they were young now when they are getting old, they are still to suffer a lot. But every time when Robbie recovers, they will be so thankful for the recovery that God blesses them.

I am currently working a part time job and earn barely enough for my rent. I worried and am upset all day. But one day a lady told me, “ good for you, you will gain experience in that field.” She is also from china and has been looking for a job for one year, so far, no good news.

We all know the story of the bottle with half water. Someone sees it half full, while someone sees it half empty. There is the same much water in the bottle, but those who see it half full will definitely happier than others. Most of the time, it doesn’t matter how much water in the bottle, what important is how you see it. We all know that, but it is easy to say, hard to do. Once you try to see everything from its positive aspect, you will feel joyful. This is the attitude of life, a happy and positive attitude.

Let’s share a verse: Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard you hearts and your minds. Philippians 4:6-7.
