My Soul, Wait Thou {119}

Dear Miss Dinah,

Daddy and Mamma were talking the other day about the importance of what we choose to put before our eyes and ears each day. Daddy was saying that everything we hear and see, even just in our "leisure" time has an effect on our day. I couldn't agree more! It can affect what we do and how we think about the world and the people in it.

So what should we think about, look at, meditate on?

A few good ideas:

Things that are true.
Things that are honest.
Things that are just.
Things that are pure.
Things that are lovely.
Things that are of good report...

We started memorizing a scripture this morning. The first part of Psalm 62:5-8.

My soul, wait thou only upon God...

The psalmist talking to his own emotions, commanding them to be at peace, for the Lord is in control.
