Looking Back – Thinking Forward

Making a mountain out of a molehill! Yes, that seems to be some major media’s goal these troubled days! How sad for our country. It is very troubling to many of us Okies. It is more important than ever before to use wise judgment to discern the truth in anything we read or hear! Read on:

As responsible journalists, the Blackwell JT is trying their best to stick to the facts. Also, that our citizens will rise above the political storms. We must read between the lines and pray that right decisions be made.

Now, for some lighter news and notable quotes to make us think good thoughts!
It is always good to remember some “safe-sayings” that help us live a more positive life. Here are some of my favorites.
“Faith is taking the first step, even when you don’t see the whole staircase:” (Martin Luther King Jr.)

And one of my favorites,

“Be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies.” (Mother Teresa)

We must not get tired of doing the right thing for the right reasons. If you are being overly concerned, we urge you to find a spiritual friend, church, or a small group to see you through these tough times. Just sharing concerns with a friend helps in many ways.

And remember, it is not too late to pick up that phone and check on that elderly friend or relative and show them that you really care.
By all means, keep on thanking all our local heroes who are looking out for you! “Faith moves mountains, but you have to keep pushing while you are praying!” (Mason Cooley)
