Lights in Dark Places


The glory of full Autumn is past but a few trees are still holding to their bright leaves -- and they are spectacular as they flare up amidst the gray trunks and dark bare branches of the woods.


How far that little candle throws its beams!
So shines a good deed in a naughty world.

It's a naughty world, all right. Maybe we all, not just Boy Scouts, should try to do a good deed every day.

Call a Congressman, volunteer, smile at a stranger, help someone somehow, support a charity, pick up a piece of litter,
put the shopping buggy back thoughtfully, be patient with someone who makes you impatient, make something for someone . . . there are so many good deeds waiting to be done . . .  waiting to make our world shine bright.

Good thoughts for Sunday morning. To live the life we aspire to...to share it with others some little way. Thanks!

I'm especially good about organizing the shopping carts, for some reason. BTW did you get snow flurries this morning? We did, though they didn't stick. On the early side, it seems.

No snow here -- just damp and cold.

I love the glimpses of autumn leaves through the bare trunks, and reading your wise words. I've had trouble signing into Google lately, but it let me do it today.
