We all know what’s wrong with our world, our nation, but … stop for a moment and consider: “What’s right with our world today?” We asked several fascinating people. Their responses ranged from “chocolate” to “our hope in Jesus Christ.” We believe you’ll enjoy their thoughts.
1. Chocolate! Bestselling author Linda Howard, who writes “A Simple Life, a Childlike Faith” for Beliefnet, says one of the extraordinary things about the world today is … “Chocolate!” Howard is the author of Mothers Are People Too. ““Recently, medical experts stumbled on an amazing discovery. Chocolate is good for you. Its chemical elements unleash beneficial reactions that strengthen the heart and the brain. Leave out some of the cream and sugar of milk chocolate – and God has given us a heart and brain pill that makes life more pleasing. Few things draw men and women together like sitting hunched over a box of assorted chocolates. Nations agree on almost no subject, except the goodness of almond M&M's. As others debate the economy and political positions, I'm ready to debate the value and difference between Belgium and German chocolates.”
