Will you stop dragging your heels in the mud of junk? Perhaps you tossed all that off your shoulders but now it crowds into your pathway, gone but not really forgotten.

In order to think good things and act on good things, we must replace the bad thoughts with something better. 

Try this. Think about at least three good things that happened to you today. Now add details.

Example:  Good thing one- family came to visit.

                  Good thing two- I was able to pick up my mail.

                  Good thing three-My neighbour shoveled my driveway.

Now expand on the wonder of good thoughts.

Good thing one. My family came to visit and brought the newest baby, I got to hold and snuggle her. She smiled at me. We shared the last of the leftover turkey.

Good Thing two- Finally I was able to walk to the mail box by myself, without the cane I’ve used since surgery. It was a sunny, bright terrific day.

Good thing three- while I was getting my mail, I was able to thank my neighbour who always looks after my snow. I asked him how his wife was and we made plans for tea.

Great memories formed on the spot. Good thoughts replacing bad ones. 

 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. (Philippians 4:8)

Remember, take that repeating battery out of your mind and think Jesus!
