A New Era Begins

"For ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see his invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse for not knowing God."

~Romans 1:20

Today something truly inspirational happened for the first time in a long, long time.  NASA launched the first new space vehicle into orbit today in more than 40 years.  It's the beginning of a new era of space exploration and discovery!

This happened in the midst of so much bad news lately.  Pandemic. Politics. Violence on our streets. All wildly exaggerated and hyped by a dishonest news media driven by ratings and advertising dollars. But this is the way the world has always been--in one way or another.

There's a lot of good things that are happening in the world today also. Those don't make interesting news stories so we don't hear much about those things. But if you look for them, they are there.  As I've said many times, if you're looking for things to be unhappy about, you'll never be disappointed.  If you're looking for bad news, you'll never go away dissatisfied.  But the same is true if you're looking for things to be grateful for.  Or if you're looking for good news.

Be the person that looks for things to be grateful for even in difficult times.  Those are the people we need more of today.
