have you ever watched the news?

sometimes i can't stand to watch it... i can't stand to hear about another teen shot, another celebrity divorce, another child abuse case turned tragedy...
i know that bad news 'sells'.  i know stories of love and joy and a hope of the future don't 'sell', but i love when i come across those.

i wish more stories like these would make the news.  those of a couple married for 60 years who instead of retiring and sitting around have become compassion advocates and sponsoring 12 kids!
other stories, while sad, remind me of the hope of Jesus and the strength of young parents as they fight to prevent other parents from going through a horrible diagnosis of their child, yet fighting with joy because they know they'll see their daughter again.

these are the stories i wish would be in the news.  stories of marriages succeeding, Jesus providing joy and hope, stories of healing.

just thinking... how would people respond if they read of joy and hope each day instead of misery and pain?

Romans 15:13 May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.
