  1. lovedthis write up. im there daily trying to find the best in friends a nd people. although it can be the ultimate test…. life is all how you look at it
    my heart prays that we as Christians put away our judgements and really care for others. get to know people..lost or saved we all share the planet and deserve respect. too often we judge based on our religious standings.

  2. Thank you soooooo much for this! I loved every bit of your story. It is so nice to hear of a time someone did something positive and showed grace instead of hearing how awful someone treated someone else, like we we hear too often nowadays.
    Thank you for sharing the good in people. The time God’s Grace and mercy showed up in someone else.

  3. Jesus would want us to find the good in all people not judge them. As at times we are too quick to judge people and not look at the good side of them. Especially if they are the type of person that likes to always get all the attention. Be number one think they are better than you. I know people like that. If not careful I can be quick to judge them. Say they are only as usual looking for attention. All the time. I have too stop myself pray for them look for good in them as they would be attention seekers. Wanting people to notice them. Give them all the attention as if there is no one else in the room. God has shown me. Dawn don’t let there attention seeking get to you. Pray for them. That I God will help you see past their attention seeking. See the good in them. God has help me do that. I see them as a different person. Their attention seeking does not annoy me anymore now. I see the good in them. As now see them as a loved Child of God. With alot of other talents. So I thanked God for that. Love Dawn Ferguson-Little xxx

  4. Dawn,

    Why is it that people feel they have to put masks on & pretend-especially in church? Emily P. Freeman in her book “Grace for the Good Girl” states that it is time to take off the masks. Quit pretending to be someone or something you’re not. God made you the way you are. I moved out of state for college. There was a neighbor down. On my first night alone she had her daughter bring me a plate of food complete with dessert. Throughout that semester she would feed me & invited me to a super bowl party. I will never forget her kindness. I try to always assume the best in people. They may appear grumpy or out of sorts. You don’t know what they are dealing with at home. I give smiles & say hello to everyone I meet. Trying my best to shed some of God’s light in this sin darkened world.

    Blessings 🙂

  5. Such good advice. When I give other the benefit of doubt it helps them and us, both in the process. I know I am so much less stressed and able to focus on what I need to focus on when I need to focus on. Instead of focusing on how the person messed up or ………
