Aw...Mondays

 


Integrity has weighed on my mind a lot during the past several years. We have seen so much hatred, so much violence, so many acts of unkindness toward others. I love what the word integrity means:

 in·teg·ri·ty
/inˈteɡrədē/
noun
  1. 1.
    the quality of being honest and having strong moral principles; moral uprightness.
    "he is known to be a man of integrity"
    Similar:
    honesty
    uprightness
    probity
    rectitude
    honor
    honorableness
    upstandingness
    good character
    principle(s)
    ethics
    morals
    righteousness
    morality
    nobility
    high-mindedness
    right-mindedness
    noble-mindedness
    virtue
    decency
    fairness
    scrupulousness
    sincerity
    truthfulness
    trustworthiness
    Opposite:
    dishonesty
  2. 2.
    the state of being whole and undivided.
    "upholding territorial integrity and national sovereignty"
    Similar:
    unity
    unification
    wholeness
    coherence
    cohesion
    undividedness

Integrity is something money can not buy for you. You can not bribe someone for it, you can not lie, cheat or steal for it. It is something you develop by having a good character. 
I hope you visit Aw...Mondays

If you have Integrity count your blessings....

Don't lose your grip upon your conscience. God put it in your breast to act as sentinel over your weaknesses. ~Minna Thomas Antrim (1861–1950), Don'ts for Girls, 1902

Never rob your character to enrich your pocket. ~James Lendall Basford (1845–1915), Seven Seventy Seven Sensations, 1897

It is not to know what to do, but strength to do it, knowing. ~Muriel Strode (1875–1964), "A Soul's Faring: LXXVIII," A Soul's Faring, 1921


The two biggest little words in the English language are the two little words "do right." ~Bob Jones, Sr. (1883–1968)


Sleep well, enjoy this new week, pray, give kindness out like candy at Halloween. Smile, be respectful and always spread love. None of these things will cost you any money.  It is a win win situation. May goodness find you all week long.

Sadly I think integrity is on a milk carton as missing. Hey, we have Bob Jones University in our city.
