We need "Eye drops" to live above the negative impact of cancer

"The eyes are the windows of the soul." 

 This biblical saying reminds us how our innermost thoughts and emotions                             find expression, literally, in the blink of an eye.

How important, then, for our eyes to mirror a spirit cleansed of negativity and radiant with hope and encouragement for all whose lives we touch. 

Each morning we spend considerable time and energy on physical rituals to make ourselves presentable for the day. Yet often we rush into the world with smudges on our soul.

The legend of two wolves contains a recipe for strengthening the inner man.

An elder, teaching his grandchildren about life, describes a fight between two wolves that takes place inside each one of us. One wolf is evil and the other is good. When asked which wolf will win, the old man simply replies: "The one you feed."

Start each day with uplifting ideas to cleanse your mind, will and emotions and provide a hearty breakfast for the 'good wolf'; your spirit , your inner man.  Add a selection of inspiring music to your morning routine, encourage yourself in the Word of God and you'll see it works like eye drops to cleanse your spirit.

 Each day, Terence and I try to mediate on the good things God has done in the midst of cancer.  It's on the days we don't that cancer overtakes us with fear and worry.

"In conclusion, my friends, fill your minds with those things that are good and that deserve praise: things that are true, right, pure, lovely, and honorable".  
Philippians 4:8 (Good News Translation)
