I just read this comment from Cindy in reference to What You “Seek” Is What You Get:
I really loved this post. I recently had a similar experience when I made a photo video for Jason for his birthday. Just about every time I watched it as I was making it, I teared up and felt overcome with gratitude & joy for him, our kids, everything! But since I don’t think I’ll be making or watching videos like that every day, I still want to find simple ways to focus in on the ‘good’ more and more. It makes me think of the verse in Matt. 6 that talks about if our eyes are good, then our whole bodies will be full of light. I want to see others, especially those closest to me, with ‘good eyes’.
Cindy makes an excellent point. When I focused on what a good man my husband, Steve, is for a week prior to paying tribute to him at a surprise birthday celebration, I was overcome with love and affection for him. Cindy experienced similar emotions while making her husband a photo video for his birthday.
The question she alludes to in her comment is how can we promote those warm, fuzzy emotions on a regular basis? Birthdays only come around once a year. What are some other means of keeping our “nearest and dearest” in the best light (especially in our own minds) most of the time?
