Words That Are Better Than Gold

My almost two year old daughter and I are playing Starfall online, an educational website for kids when we stumble over this page. Four words that says the possession of them all are better than gold.



Hope.



Joy.




Kind.




Peace.










My wife adds, health but I pointed out, you can't have peace if you don't have good health. I think these are the very things, or gifts our world wanted.




Hope amidst the uncertainties of the future, when there are so much pessimism and prophets and prophetess of doom and gloom. That the sun will not shine again clearer and lighter.




Joy, the very reason we all wanted in life and even in the life beyond. Sometimes the simplest things are those that gives us real and lasting happiness, or joy. It is when we do good, and when we truly share our best without expecting anything.




Kind - thoughts, words and deeds, that is. I love a song that I always sing when I am alone, "Have I done any good in the world today? Have I help anyone in need? Have I cheered up the sad and made someone feel glad. If not, I have failed indeed. Has anyone's burden been lighter today, because I was willing to share..."




Peace. Anyone in this world wanted it. Nations and countries, kingdoms and tribes, clans, families, individual wants a piece of peace. Peace they say cannot be achieved without change.




"May the people on this planet be changed.
Changed from hatred to love,
Changed from greed to giving,
Changed from selfishness to selflessness,
Changed from apathy to action,
Changed from jealousy to joy over someone's accomplishments,
Changed from intolerance to acceptance,
Changed from being destructive to being constructive,
Changed from fighting to peace,
Changed from killing to protecting life,
Changed from censorship to freedom,
Changed from ignorance to education,
Changed from fearing our differences to rejoicing our variety."




For me, another song, "Let there be peace on earth, and let it begin with me." You've heard this song, don't you? So I guess, we better start singing now, haha.




So there you go, the four words that says to be better than gold. Hope, Joy, Kind, and Peace. May we have all these things as we continue our journey in this life.
