There Is Only One Place To Begin ……

In seeking peace, there is only one place to begin …….. that in our home and heart.

Where there is love, the heart is light.
Where there is love, the day is bright.
Where there is love, there is a song.
To help when things ……..
are going wrong.
And where the home
is filled with love
You’ll always find God spoken of.
And when a family prays together
That family also stays together.

For a moment today, just be. Let go of the stress and let your mind be grateful for a break. Rediscover the natural wonders as you walk past every day …… How can there possibly be that many shades of green? If you are surrounded by buildings, then, just celebrate the creative genius of human beings. Don’t think. Don’t strain. See the hope, the alarm, the love, the grief in the faces that stream by. Close your eyes and try to smell the sunshine at the thought of flowers that will soon follow. Thank someone you would like to thank. And thank whomever you would like to thank for the chance to even be here ……..

Wishing you another great weekend in advance and just be !!!

    I was at the park with my dog this morning and was very aware of how green things are looking. We have been without rain and recently had some, it’s like someone Photoshopped the world. Thanks for the thoughtful post and I wish you a pleasant weekend as well.

    Some times we just need permission to “exhale.” Thanks for your thoughts. I plan to “just be” today and enjoy it fully!

  9. Simple thoughts and words with so much meaning. You would be amazed at how many people don’t take the time to thank someone who has crossed their path in their day. At a recent docotr’s appointment, I thanked the nurse for her pre-doctor care and she smiled brightly and said no one had ever thanked her. She was happy I did. It’s those little things that bring you joy and make someones day a little easier.
    Thanks for reminding us to be still and try to make someone else happy sometimes.
    Have a GREAT weekend, Michael.

    What a lovely thought. I plan to geocache on the coast tomorrow. Just be and watch the waves sounds like a good idea.

    Wonderful thoughts Michael. It’s so easy to put responsibility for our happiness on someone else instead of beginning within. Thanks for reminding us!
