Sometimes when I stop and think about this small Missouri town, I smile. The smile associated with the thoughts I have about my quaint historic downtown my family resides in appear often. The goings on and events that take place throughout the year are small town blessings. Those warm feeling smiles aren't exclusive. I'm surrounded by like minded folks that have the same fuzzy feelings. From the front porch gatherings, to the farm to table evenings, the enchantment swarms through the town like fireflies.
I grew up in a much smaller town than Liberty. So those feelings of small town goodness have been front and center throughout my childhood and have carried through my adult life.
There's something magical about neighbors watching out for neighbors. Folks lending a helping hand without a single thought of reward or favor. Greeting other's on the sidewalk with a smile and hello. Even if they're searching for Pokémon. I'm still going to blurt out HELLO!
With all the killings and down right evil folks that seem to take center stage lately, I want you to know there's good people in the world. In fact remember, there's many more good people in the world than bad one's.
Please pray for peace and God's safety for all. Especially pray for the evil souls. That they will turn to God for repentance and allow love to fill their empty souls.
Not something you would normally think of when praying.
God bless, and peace on earth good will towards men and women.
