Replace Fear with Faith

When you think about wedding planning… a lot things come to mind…love…excitement…stress…bridezillas…

Read about this bride that actually didn’t just book a photographer for her wedding day, but for the wedding planning. 

She did it because she wanted people to see the process she was going through of planning her wedding, and having treatment for cancer. 

The photographer followed her to dress fittings, and to the hair dresser when she shaved her head before chemo.

She said, “What I was going through was personal, but it’s something people need to see. A lot of people are scared of cancer, and it’s important for people to see that you shouldn’t be. ... I won’t live in fear.”

Reminds me of something my grandma taught me to pray…

"God please replace my fear with faith"

Deep and Simple

You might want to set your DVR for this one.  Especially if you were a fan of Mr. Rogers growing up.  Man, I can still picture him putting his sweater…and changing his shoes…feeding his fish…

There’s a documentary about him that’s going to be on PBS next Tuesday called “Mister Rogers and Me.”  It’s about what happened with a young MTV producer met Mister Rogers and changed his perspective on life. 

His mother had rented a cottage for a summer vacation, turns out Mister Rogers lived next door. 

They got to know each other.  Mister Rogers said one specific thing to the young man: 

“I firmly believe that deep and simple, is more essential than shallow and complex.  And he said, spread the word.”

So the MTV producer went on the road, talked to Mister Rogers friends and neighbors to figure out what he meant by that. 

Wondering what you think.  I think it’s all about how we treat one another. 

Mr. Rogers says himself that He got into television because he saw people throw pies in people's faces.  And if there's anything that made him mad was one person demeaning another.  

Instead of assuming the worst about someone, He assumed that everyone watching his show had this wonderful person inside just waiting to get out.
