"The brain is wider than the sky." Emily Dickinson
Keeping your mind active is so important as you enter this new season of life. Focus on filling your thoughts with beautiful life-giving Scriptures, inspiring stories, and clean, entertaining media that will keep you laughing.
If you’ve never read through the entire Bible, now would be a great time to find a reading plan that works for you. Whether you read whole chapters at a time, or take it slowly verse-by-verse, reading through the Word of God will bless you abundantly.
The empty-nest years are also perfect for learning new brain games, doing crossword puzzles, or downloading fun and challenging apps. The options are endless when it comes to exercising your mind. And now that you have more time, the sky is the limit! Here are some of the most popular word game apps for 2019.
Most of all, reject negative thinking and depressing thoughts. Focus on all the wonderful blessings God has showered on you and your family. Don’t allow yourself to entertain bitterness or resentment. Fill your mind with whatever is noble and true.
"Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy--meditate on these things." (Philippians 4:8)
