Today’s reflection is from a poem by Pamela Owens Renfro.

Reach for the Good
There is good in life every day.
Take a few minutes to distract yourself from your concerns-long enough to draw strength from a tree or to find pleasure in a bird’s song. Return a smile; realize that life is a series of levels, cycles of ups and downs-some easy, some challenging.
Through it all, you will learn; you will grow strong in faith; you will mature in understanding.
The difficult times are often the best teachers, and there is good to be found in all situations.
Reach for the good. Be positive, and don’t give up.
This is easier said than done but if we work on it each day we can grow to be more positive and closer to our loving God.
