Healing Cards.

Today's card:
A Cheerful expression brings joy to the heart, and good news gives health to the bones.

Here's a task:
Be the bearer of only good news today. In living out this task, note whether you find it difficult to maintain. And if so, discover why within yourself. 

The healing value of a kind glance and positive reinforcement was know to the ancient Hebrews over 3,000 years ago. This passage from the Book of Proverbs, (15:30), attributed to King Solomon , is just one example of the practical wisdom buried in the Hebrew Bible, and other ancient scriptures, which bears only a tangential connection to religious dogma. It shouldn't"t seem at all odd that people living in a culture with far fewer distractions and monumentally less information to master could bring their minds and hearts to focus on what really matter, and generate wisdom that is supported by recent medical and scientific research. 

Blessing your life with family and friends is what makes a well balanced life. But, what happens when you suddenly find yourself alone? Maybe because you've moved to a new city. Maybe you find that once the kids have left home you no longer have so much to do and the line of commitment to organizations have left you with free time.
My question is simply this.
How do you make new friends?
