Good morning, this is Topher from Washington Church of Christ, bringing you a positive message minute.

Let me take you back to one of those great childhood memories with just one word.  Crayon.  Whether you pronounce it "Crown", "Cran", or "Cra-yon", these little wax sticks were a privilege to use and our artwork from them was masterful to behold in those toddler and elementary years.  How many hours did we spend picking out just the right colors that fit this curve and that shape?  Crayons were a way of expressing ourselves and we got to choose from 12 or 108 different expressions. 

Disney thought the same thing too!
As we grow older, I think Crayons are a lot like our attitudes.  We still get to choose the one we want for every situation.  Joy, Anger, Peace, Depression, Mercy, Frustration.  These are some of our colors of expression.  

I'm working on a new favorite crayon, you know, that go-to crayon that you could use in any situation, and I'd like to share this color through a Bible verse.  Paul says this in Philippians 4. "In any and every circumstance, I have learned the secret of facing plenty and hunger, abundance, and need.  I have learned in whatever situation I am, to be content." 

Today, let's try out a new color from that crayon box of responses, because it just might be your favorite that fits every circumstance.  Try to enjoy being content today.  You'll be glad you did.
