Friday 5 'Goodness' Courtesy of Frodo and Sam


Frodo: I can't do this, Sam.

Sam: I know. It's all wrong. By rights we shouldn't even be here. But we are. It's like in the great stories, Mr. Frodo. The ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger, they were. And sometimes you didn't want to know the end. Because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad had happened? But in the end, it's only a passing thing, this shadow. Even darkness must pass. A new day will come. And when the sun shines it will shine out the clearer. Those were the stories that stayed with you. That meant something, even if you were too small to understand why. But I think, Mr. Frodo, I do understand. I know now. Folk in those stories had lots of chances of turning back, only they didn't. They kept going. Because they were holding on to something.

Frodo: What are we holding onto, Sam?

Sam: That there's some good in this world, Mr. Frodo... and it's worth fighting for.


From Deb at RevGalBlogPals:

In these last few weeks there's been all kinds of bad news. 

Tornadoes and a blizzard. Gun violence and a legislative body squabbling like toddlers 

over budgets, health care and who knows what else. 

For those in the US, it's tax season. Yuck.

We're only in the second week of Lent. Easter's a long way off.
And here in the Mid-Atlantic region, the weather can't seem to make up its mind.
Is it winter? Is it spring? Will it snow? Will it rain?
Are my daffodils doomed if they actually BLOOM next week like they are threatening to?

So this week's Friday Five is courtesy of my good friends Frodo and Sam. 
Tell me 5 things that are good in our world. Or your world. 
Photos are a bonus.

Extra time in the Word on this Lenten Journey = GOOD!

Spirit of the Lord is Freedom Here and that is definitely GOOD!

We are Known and we are BeLOVED!  That is beyond GOOD! 

GOD holds our right hand. The hand of our strength.
We are NOT alone.  We are NOT to fear.
We have GOD's Help!  Nothing but GOOD !!

Let's !!  

and remember ...
