THIS WEEK’S REVIEW:  “THE VISION:  Telling Kids That They Can Make the World a Better Place”

Eleanor Jones of Pasadena, California, says, “I recently had the opportunity to read this book and was VERY IMPRESSED!!!  The diversity and dynamics of the content alone are worth its weight in gold.  Not only is this book a GREAT educational tool in schools for our youth today, but it’s a book (and story) that can be shared in our church Sunday School classes and in our own homes.  It’s rich in history and offers encouragement for the present and the future.”

The Best Things In Life Are Free

~ Joyce Fields

There’s an old song with the title, “The Best Things In Life Are Free.”  The song is old, but that statement will ring true forever.

As a society, we are being “trained,” “conditioned,” “brainwashed”–whatever term you care to use–to believe that we should think highly of, and place value on, material “things”—expensive cars, designer clothes, designer shoes, jewelry, cameras, cell phones, video games, etc., etc., etc.

Don’t be fooled!

In that song, “The Best Things In Life Are Free,” the lyrics describe some of those “best things”:

  • The moon and the stars; the flowers in spring, the robins that sing; the moonbeams that shine–they’re yours, they’re mine.
  • And love can come to everyone.

Love.  That’s probably the VERY “best thing.”

And money can’t buy the “best things.”

How much money does it cost to listen to the problems or concerns of a loved one or good friend?

How much money does it cost to share laughter with a child?

How much money does it cost to give or receive a warm hug?

How much money does it cost to extend a helping hand?

How much money does it cost to share a smile?

How much money does it cost to encourage or support another?

How much money does it cost to forgive?

How much money does it cost to remind someone that they are loved?

See?!  The best things in life ARE free.

What comprises your “Best Things In Life Are Free” list?
