Prime Time Good News

Wouldn't it be so nice to turn on your television and there be nothing BUT good news?  Last week I fasted from TV and Facebook.  It was hard to not to want to check my FB and to turn on the news like HLN which I enjoy.  At least that is what I thought until I fasted...there is a reason why God wants us to BE STILL.  After a few days I realized that the only reason I wanted it on was because I couldn't turn it on and not because I was missing the news and or updates.  Everything in moderation right? Priorities?

Part of what I learned was that I would rather put in my heart and mind all good news and good things and surround myself with happy and those who will build us up.  It is a fallen world we live in and I think we gravitate to those who are like us...that our hearts and minds and souls radiates what is there?  And becuase of where I am on this journey,  I wish there was a station that had uplifting news and positive storie all day, everyday!.  One reason is that there are so many amazing people., elderly, children, men and women who are trying to do their part in making the world better because they made a deliberate choice to DO SOMETHING. 
There are so many incredible people in my own community changing the world one person at a time.  It seems in my opinion that they only time we get the feel good stories is when we have a tragedy and the tv stations are there to cover.  But why not all the time?

In the weeks to come, a new blog sharing some amazing stories of ordinary people paying it forward with Deliberate & Intentional Acts of Love or what I refer to as "DIAL" for the day will be revealed to inspire those who want to join in the fun.. 

The world is BIG but yet SMALL in so many ways.  I have always known that if you talk to someone long enough that you will both end up knowing each other or know someone and or have had your paths cross before?  Which brings me to the next question.  Do you believe that things happen randomly?

So what kind of things make news worthy of our time?  What shows would you be willing to watch if some changes were made?  What are your favorite shows now and all time? 

What would a perfect world look like?  What would a perfect child look and be like?  What would a prefect blog look like and what features would it have?  Did you see the movie The Odd Life of Timothy Green?  Great movie!!

 Do you feel like you are living your Divine Assignment and if so was the journey worth it and if not what would it take to get you there??  Do you have a Dream Board or a Bucket List?

Do you have a story to share?  Would your testimony if told change the life of one or many?  Would you be open to sharing yours and what you learned and would you change your life and if so why??

These will be my new topics that I will cover in my blog and what I will call :  The Prime Time GOOD News for today:

Bible Verse for Today:  Matthew 11:28-30 The Message (MSG) 28-30"Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you'll recover your life. I'll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won't lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you'll learn to live freely and lightly."
