THE EXTRAORDINARY LIFE
 
We've all heard about the basic psychology test of showing someone a cup half filled with liquid. The question is: is the cup half full or half empty? The pessimist will comment that it is half empty, the optimist that it is half full.

Nothing can separate us from his love

Our attitude should be to the half filled cup of drink: "The cup is half full and I really enjoyed the other half!"
We must rebuke the negative flesh within us and  "LET" the mind of Christ be in us (Phil 2).
We must be kind and gentle to others and seek to enrich them - just as our Father has done to us.
