What Was I Thinking?

     Before I turned 40 last year, I told my doctor 'they say everything changes when you turn 40.'  He said 'no, it's  60' because he was closing in on that age.  I think something changed because this caption hits a little too close to home and a little more often now.  Has your train gone off track more than you like to admit?  They say to keep your mind healthy and alert, you should do word games or read or do anything thought provoking.  I play scrabble everyday with friends online so would my mind turn to mush without that daily activity?  I hope not.
     Our thoughts can not only disappear on us but can become tainted. Yes, the mind can be both active and mush at the same time. Our thoughts can often turn into our words so we must try to keep them on a positive note and out of the gutter. Philippians 4:8  ''Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.''
