Celebrate What's Right in the World

It's my birthday!

Yes, today the 4th of January. Let's just say there are a lot of fours happening for me today age wise. I joked with a friend I may have to buy a lottery ticket. We had a wonderful trip to Florida for Christmas. Drove this time. That will go down in the Brasington Family History Book cause it probably won't happen again....or so says Buster. I met a blogger friend. So fun. I'll get pictures posted soon.


This video link was e-mailed to me by my dear friend Linda. I almost skipped over it. I'm so glad I did not. I usually try and keep my post brief and to the point, but this is a 20 minute video. If you don't have time to watch it now, please come back and view it when you can. You will not be disappointed. It gave me a great perspective as I begin this new year.

It seems they have removed this video from the internet. Sorry about that. It's too bad because it really was a nice piece to watch.


One of the phrase that really struck me was "Be the best FOR the world not IN the world."

I pray you make the best of this new year. I plan to.

Hi Joy,

Happy Birthday! Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy. Hope you are totally spoiled.

Really enjoyed the video ... may just put it up on my own blog. Really, it is what scripture teaches but from a secular view.

Happy, Happy Birthday! So crazy...I hear you about driving, and we did not even go that far. We only went to Vegas, a 5h drive on the way there, and 10h on the way home...aaahh potty training and nursing!!!

I can't wait to see the photos of your meet up with the bloggy friend. It will be so neat seeing familiar sights on YOUR blog!

I meant to say Hapy Birthday yesterdy and I got sidetracked. I'm glad you had a great vacation. Ask Paige to email me about her take on GWTW. I'd be interested in hearing her perspective - forty years after my first experience with the book. Kids nowadays think differently. Scary, huh?
