I hope y’all enjoy my thirty fifth entry for Becca’s Nurturing Thursday Challenge. This week’s theme is Good Things. Here’s a link to Becca’s Blog https://beccagivens.wordpress.com/2020/04/23/nurt-thurs-good-things/

Nurturing Thursday was started by Becca Givens to “give this planet a much needed shot of fun, support and positive energy!” I thank her for starting a challenge that will help us get through the difficulties that we all face. I thank Becca for doing something to help everyone feel better especially since this world has been so cruel lately.

Four Songs that mention Good Things

Some Pictures and some Quotes about Good Things


“If I were to say, ‘God, why me?’ about the bad things, then I should have said, ‘God, why me?’ about the good things that happened in my life.”

~ Arthur Ashe

“You can be obsessed with the bad things people say and the good things; either way, you’re obsessed with yourself, and I’m not – you can become unhinged so easily.”

~ Taylor Swift

“You can live your life angry, bitter, mad at somebody or even guilty, not letting go of your own mistakes, but you won’t receive the good things God has in store.”

~ Joel Osteen

“There is a lot of talk now about metal detectors & gun control. Both are good things. But they are no more a solution than forks and spoons are a solution to world hunger.”

~ Anna Quindlen

“Happiness radiates like the fragrance from a flower and draws all good things towards you.”

~ Maharishi Mahesh Yogi

I  hear  my  own  daughters  talking  about  big companies  polluting  the  environment,  and then  I  realize  they  are  talking  about  companies  of  which  one  I  am  running.  But  when  I  tell them  to  read  the  things  we  are  doing,  then  they realize  we  are  doing  good  things.  But millennials  are  really  a  great   lot.

~ Indra Nooyi

“I  don’t  really  focus  on  these  things  –  on  what tags  are  given  to  me  or  what  people  think  of me  off  the  field –  stuff  like  that.  My  main  focus is  always  to  do  well  on  the   field  for   the   Indian  cricket   team.   When   people  say   good   things  about   me   off   the   field,   I   am  more   than   happy   to  accept   them.”

~ Virat Kohli

“Word hark, be kind, and good things will happen for sure.”

~ Urvashi Rautela

“You will never exaggerate when you speak good things of God. It  is  not  possible  to  do  so. Try,  dear  brethren,  and  boast  in  the  Lord.”

~ Charles Spurgeon

The     great     thing     about     letting     people     be true     to     themselves     is     they     often      do       very     good      things      indeed.”

~ Katie Hopkins

“Seek    ye    first    the    good    things    of    the    mind,  and    the    rest    will    either    be    supplied    or    its   loss    will     not     be     felt.”

~ Francis Bacon

Read. As much as you can. As deeply, widely, nourishingly, and ­irritatingly as you can. And the good things will make you remember them, so you won’t need to take notes.
~ A.L. Kennedy
