It's Nothing Negative Tuesday

Pastor Steve Rogers is going the day without saying anything negative - 100% positive ALL day today!

OK, my wife and I, who normally try to be pretty positive people - are going on a fast today ... we are gonna fast all negitive or critical words for today just to see if we can go 24 hours with out criticizing anything or anybody.

I'm looking forward to staying positive on a 100 degree day...






I had a beautiful 80-something woman greet me with that as she came to church on Sunday ... I agree 100% ...

We are LIVING in a great City ... with outstanding leadership - we still, in MY humble opinion live in the GREATEST country on the PLANET ...

We have so much to be positive - so, this should be a breeze ... RIGHT?

a commitment to stay positive puts a whole new spin on Critical Analysis ... but it's a really good mental workout - slr

I was really thinking that I would try to 1-up my day yesterday ... after a pretty successful challenge - you know - I messed up twice yesterday ... so I didn't quite make it ... but then today I was wanting to see if I could not only skip a critical or negative word - but - 1 up that by stating a positive or encouraging word instead of simply (or NOT so simply) not saying something Negative ... so - I promise you ... you don't even want to know... I can't do that today ... but starting now through end of the day tomorrow ... instead of NOT saying a negative word ...I will replace each negative thought / or tendency with a positive or encouraging word... hmmm... right after this ... when was the last time you had lunch or dinner or just a conversation with someone when all they did was say nice stuff about others... I mean - instead of saying a she/he is such a good woman/man ... BUT... when does that happen ... I mean - it seems to me that almost every time I hear something positive about someone it is only a build up to what is really WANTING to be SAID... Ok.. that in itself is pretty negative - sorry about that sudden relapse ... this is why I have to work on this stuff... soooo - starting NOW ... oh, yeah... Now every time I say something good ... everyone is gonna be like - "I wonder what he really wanted to say... well, I'm gonna just see if I can do this ... If you don't hear from me for a while - it probably means I really didn't do to well
