golden-rule

In a world of adversity, division at its extreme, despair and death; I know I need to learn how to bond and work together so I/we can help more people.

I don’t want to just sit around, moan and groan.

I’m sure I can be outspoken yet tender-hearted and insightful or the very least – willing to learn.

  • Personally I absolutely feel we have to continue to SHOW deep love for each other
  • Cheerfully share y/our home with those who need a meal or a place to stay
  • Use the creative, gifting, heart, strengths to impact the world around you

Coach Vince Lombardi on making a winning team. Lombardi said, “There are a lot of coaches with good ball clubs who know the fundamentals and have plenty of discipline but still don’t win the game. Then you come to the third ingredient: if you’re going to play together as a team, you’ve got to care for one another. You’ve got to love each other. Each player has to be thinking about the next guy. You’ve got to do your job well in order that he can do his. The difference between mediocrity and greatness is the feeling these guys have for each other.”

SPORTS, BUSINESS, CHURCH, EDUCATION, CHARITY, GOVERNMENT, CITY, NATION, COUNTRY – every team must care.

Not just to care But Love not just to love But Show Love.

Love is not an abstract idea. Love must be manifested.

True love is not just something you feel – it’s something you demonstrate!

 

  • Marriages have problems when partners don’t show love to one another. A husband and wife may love each other deeply but have a miserable marriage because they don’t know how to show their love for one another.
  • You can’t raise kids properly without showing them love.
  • You can’t have true, lasting, satisfying friendships if your friends can’t tell that you love them.
  • You can’t experience relationships in the community or in your church family without showing and receiving love.

 

Some people find it rather easy to show love. It’s natural as breathing.

Others find it difficult – in fact they feel uncomfortable – simply because of your upbringing.

So HOW do we show love to others.

Treat others just as you want to be treated -The Golden Rule

This is basic.  How do I want to be treated?

 IN no particular order:

  • Listen to me when I talk
  • Show Love to me
  • Forgive me
  • Try Understanding me
  • Give me a Second chance
  • Respect me
  • Think about me
  • Be in the moment/ engaging
  • Relax with me
  • Meet some of my needs
  • Be patient with me
  • Be kind to me
  • Be Faithful to me
  • Do right by me
  • Remember with me
  • Include me in Making memories
  • Honor me
  • Be genuine with me
  • Appreciate me

Oh Dear

Sounds needy

Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. Love does not demand its own way. Love is not irritable, and it keeps no record of when it has been wronged.

It is never glad about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out.

Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.

Wow

But in reality we are all fragile, delicate, sensitive and utterly in need of love.

Thanks for stopping by……Beverley

I’m sure you have seen this video but before you leave check it out again thanks……Have a wonderful week.

**

We know that we ought to be thankful for the good things and use the not so great things to teach us to count our blessings.

touching-hands

One of the greatest blessing in our lives is to love and know love.

It is far too easy to camouflage the very people we love that make life worthwhile, with the business and busyness of life.

Tis the Season-
It’s Christmas, it’s a miracle, it’s love, it’s a gift –
To fall in love is a precious gift, a miracle.

Would you like to fall in love all over again?

To fall in love all over again brings tears to my heart and rain to my eyes.

Would you like to fall in love again this Christmas season?

To look into the eyes of creator God afresh and see the miracles of his love for you. To once again have hope because of the Man whose birth we celebrate on Christmas Day. To fall in love with the creator not just his creation.

To look into the eyes of your spouse as once you did and caused that head over heels butterfly feeling. The commitment in your heart of your youth to never take him/her for granted.

As a youth or young adult in love it is so natural to want to explore, to touch, to feel that warm body of another human being. To immerse in that sensual electrifying experience. The desire to be in love came so naturally; could that happen again?

I believe that one of the biggest reasons that people are miserable especially at Christmas is because they refuse to let go of the hurts, disappointment, and offenses of others. They justify their pain and keep themselves and others locked in a prison of unforgiveness. Believe me It isn’t easy making the choice to forgive But living with unforgiveness can be deadly! There is a great need to forgive.

A need to rekindle, refresh, fan the flame of love.

To make a date every day. Re-establish connection with your life-companion the forever friendship. There’s a good man in there- there’s a good woman in there.
In sickness and in health. To be captivated once again.

To look into the eyes of your now grown child/ren and remember the naivety of that new mom feeling. To remember your heart swell with love for the little one. The smell, the touch of his/her silky newborn skin of this little human who needs you every second of every day. The promise you made to nurture and keep them safe all wrapped in the warmth of your love. To disrespect or allow harm near your child would be unthinkable. Remember – you would never let anyone or anything interfere with that sweet baby smile. Honor your children.

As we fall in love with God, spouse and child remember those who suffer. For those who are ill, forgotten, lonely; for those who are homeless and are huddled on dark winter nights in the unseen corners of cities all over the world.

Don’t let this season be the greatest regret of your life.
Let it be the greatest love’s rebirth of your Existence. Let it bring you back to life.
To feel, to touch, to hug, to forgive, to kiss, to recommit, bringing joy thought lost.

No it doesn’t have to be a fairy tale but true life.

Thanks for reading my blog!

Merry Christmas

pain too much

as they sing
one last song,

M stands for Mushroom and Meekness!

Hmm mushrooms. Grown in most unusual way; usually mushrooms are grown in compost including straw and hay.

mushrooms

Mushroom
A mushroom is the fleshy, spore-bearing fruiting body of a fungus, typically produced above ground on soil or on its food source. Wikipedia

It is known that edible mushrooms are consumed by humans as comestibles for their nutritional value; Mushrooms have Niacin, riboflavin, vitamin D, potassium, selenium to name a few.
They are occasionally consumed for their supposed medicinal value.

The Humble Mushroom is waiting in the shadows to be picked. The meek and mild mushroom waiting for our table but don’t be fooled there are poisonous mushrooms out there so be careful.

We can be valuable and sought for like edible mushrooms or we can be toxic like poisonous mushrooms.

We choose who we want to be. Yes there are circumstance in our lives that would drive faith away, drive away love or un-nurtured love, bitterness, anger, fear, confusion; the list is endless. In acute situations it could involve counselling. However there comes a time we Must face the demons and seek after that which is good. Like Meekness.

Meekness is not exactly a sought after attribute nonetheless an important one.

How would you describe Meekness?

• Humble, patient, kind, gentle even under provocation from others
• Don’t repay evil for evil
• Person of good conversation, live a good life, good deeds done in humility without fanfare.
• Calm temper not easily provoked
 • Bridles anger -Anyone can get angry
• Linked to humility not prone to jealousy or envy
 • Goes against human pride and the ills of humanity of grabbing, greed, climb the ladder and knock the-other-person-off-the-rung-  if-you-can kinda a mindset
• So I’m told that meekness “literally means “strength under control
• Meekness is not weakness, but strength harnessed for service
 • Not wimpiness or spineless as some would suggest
• Doesn’t create collateral damage
• Not survival of the fittest by force
• Exercised in Compassion
• Concerned with the interests of others
• Gracious

What practical example can we give for meekness.  The kid who sits alone at the lunch table; join him.  I am sure you can think of others.

Quotes I am Pondering Today!

With Malice toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right, as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation’s wounds.
 -Abraham Lincoln

*

 “I believe the first test of a truly great man is his humility. I do not mean by humility, doubt of his own power, or hesitation in speaking his opinion. But really great men have a … feeling that the greatness is not in them but through them; that they could not do or be anything else than God made them.”
-John Riskin

*

Poem by Abraham Lincoln

Meekness is not weakness

Meekness is not weakness its strength under control,
Don’t think of me as weak, shy, reserved, or timid.
I’m a child of the king the half has not yet been told.
No! You can’t walk all over me and treat me like a door mat,
I’m not trying to straighten out the world and that settles that.

I refuse to respond to every critic and I won’t let it bother me,
I may have the power to do something about it, but my time
Is too valuable you see: I’ll keep my focus and stand tall doing
What I’m called to do. My strength and power is in God’s control
Meekness is not weakness, blessed are the chosen few.

L is for Lettuce and Love!

Lettuce is an annual plant of the aster or sunflower family.  It is most often grown as a leaf vegetable.

lettuce

As you know Lettuce is most often used for salads, sandwiches and wraps. Lettuce is a good source of vitamin A and potassium, as well as a minor source for several other vitamins and nutrients. Some people will use Lettuce to help curb munchies by eating extra lettuce while on a diet plan.  Not quite sure if that’s a good idea but I’m sure it won’t hurt to eat extra lettuce.

As a child we often used lettuce to feed the rabbits.

As an adult I more than appreciate Lettuce; I Love Lettuce. My favorites are Iceberg and Romaine.

‘Love’ a many splendored word!!!!!!!

To live a life in Love Should not be rare.

Here is a poem with my take on love actually it’s my perspective from abuse to seeing onself through the eyes of God and self acceptance with a stronger ability to love.

love
is who i am
born to love
to give
born to live
in glory, honor
esteem and vitality,
fearfully
and wonderfully
made am i
this is the
portabellow of love
 
but then the giver
of earthly life
started with you
in love,
slowly
tainted the vision
of love i knew
became
sum of all tears
 
realization
true love and fragrance
of acceptance
nutured by god above
giver of purest love,
identity
not based on
your neglect
but on the giver
of life in me
select not
entrust my identity
with you
but creator
has made me perfect
to sit in heavenly places, 
 
essence
with a grateful heart
I am secure
love who i am
now I can
love
you…

Love

Keep Loving!

Quotes I am pondering Today!

The hunger for love is much more difficult to remove than the hunger for bread.

– Mother Teresa

Though our feelings come and go, God’s love for us does not.

– C. S. Lewis

My heart is, and always will be, yours. – Sense and Sensibility

Thanks for reading my bLoG!

Today could you take the time to watch this video?

If you give a little love, you can get a little love of your own.  It tells the truth of kindness simply. 

Not complicated.

Thanks for watching!

K is for Kiwi and Kindness!

The kiwifruit or kiwi is the edible berry of a woody vine in the genus Actinidia. Thanks Wikipedia.

The most common kiwifruit is oval, about the size of a large hen’s egg. It has a fibrous greenish-brown skin and bright green with rows of tiny, black, edible seeds.

Kiwifruit is a rich source of vitamin C and vitamin K, and a good source of dietary fiber and vitamin E.

kiwi-fruit

Kiwi is Kind to your body. A study performed at the University of Oslo in Norway reported that consuming two to three kiwifruit daily for 28 days significantly potentially reducing the risk of blood clots.

Kind.  I like that word.  Simply,  Kindness is the act or the state of being kind, being marked by good and charitable behavior, pleasant disposition, and concern for others.

We are encouraged always to be kind and compassionate to one another.

Many of us on occasion show kindness to our friends and family– But one of the reasons we are kind to them is because we want them to be kind to us. It’s kinda like the theory of Christmas gift giving. Sometimes we give Christmas gifts to others because they give Christmas gifts to us. Wikipedia calls it reciprocal giving. There’s nothing wrong with showing kindness to others because they are kind to you, but God’s kind of love and kindness goes further than that. God encourages us to love your neighbor as yourself.  Well you could ask as so many have in the past;  “Who is my neighbor?” The answer as always is in the parable of  the Good SamaritanTo show kindness to those who can’t repay us.  I believe each of you on occasion have had cause to show kindness to someone who could not repay you and you followed through. Kudos to you for that and God Bless!

Kindness, Love & Sacrifice!

The longer I live the more I learn. One of the things I have learned is these Three Words ‘kindness, love and sacrifice’ go together.

Kindness is truest when you don’t expect anything in return. It is precisely the most wonderful time of the year, perfect time of day when you are kind to someone who can do absolutely nothing in return nor will ever be able to repay you.

Sometimes People will be kind, IF, it doesn’t cost them anything. Kindness has a parallel with Love.

Real Love is a willingness to sacrifice. Sacrifice is giving the bigger piece, better half, bestest of anything to another when you really want it yourself.

John Garmo said, A sacrifice is a gift of the essence or the product of our lives. It may be a gift of our time, a gift of our talent, or a gift of our treasure. Whatever shape it takes, it is a sacrifice given with no regard for a return on the investment.

I am not sure who said it but the quote says; Don’t be yourself – be someone a little nicer – God won’t ask how much overtime you worked, but will ask if you worked overtime for your family and loved ones.

Tuesdays is my day for babysitting grandbaby #3- Baby Emma.  I wanted to make it an extra special day for everyone.  My daughter Donna was feeling a little down and needed to have a change of scenery. I said, if you come visit while I am babysitting Baby Emma then I will cook you a turkey. Dinner with some of the trimmings.  I also said to my daughter Joanne who was at work, the mom of Baby Emma, that I was cooking a Turkey Dinner.  She didn’t realize I was at her house already she thought I was cooking the turkey at my house before I came to her home.   She said that sounds so good; I wish I could have some.  I said you will I am cooking it at your house now.  She was so excited.  I don’t have money, I don’t have things, I don’t have worldly values but I did have a turkey.

Kindness, Love & Sacrifice; These things I aspire to every day; many days I fall flat on my face but I pick myself up and start again. God Bless You!


Quotes I am Pondering Today!

 

“People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.
If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway.
If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway.
The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway.
For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.” 

– Mother Teresa
 

Kindness
is more important than wisdom
and the recognition
of this
is the beginning of wisdom.

Theodore Isaac Rubin

 

Constant kindness can accomplish much. As the sun makes ice melt, kindness causes misunderstanding, mistrust, and hostility to evaporate

– Albert Schweitzer

 

A little thought and a little kindness are often worth more than a great deal of money.

John Ruskin

Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see.

Mark Twain

Here is a video ‘Kindness’ written and performed by my daughter Deana Hoyles.

Here is a video to remind us of those who aren’t receiving Kindness. Let’s take action first by prayer.  I would like to see Child Abuse obliterated in our generation.

Thanks for reading my bLoG!

So this is Christmas, so what have you done?

What a Powerful question.

So this is Christmas
And what have you done
Another year over
And a new one just begun

This time of year I have a Performance Appraisal. It gives me the willies; those old feelings arise, I don’t want to think that I did not measure up somehow.

Ralph Marston said, Don’t lower your expectations to meet your performance. Raise your level of performance to meet your expectations. Expect the best of yourself, and then do what is necessary to make it a reality.

The question still stands!

So what have we done for:

  • Family
  • Charity
  • Neighbor
  • Job
  • Character
  • Personal Growth
  • Thankfulness
  • Pay it Forward
  • Having fun
  • Peace

The question at this time of year; should we measure/compare to others, let us off the hook, to see our strengths, weaknesses, are there any unresolved issues.  Whether we want to or not, we leave a trail of who we are. Only you/I , at the end of the day can answer the questions.

so this is christmas and

It is one thing to succumb to undue pressure another than to move out of our comfort zone to challenge ourselves.

In a psychology course the author said that EXPECTATIONS are made up of OUR experiences, OUR beliefs, OUR values, OUR perceptions, OUR knowledge. And yet we place them on OTHERS to perform to OUR standards not THEIR own.

The REALITY – placing our expectations on others often get an unwanted reaction. Other people are giving what they are capable of out of their experiences, their beliefs, their values, their perceptions, their knowledge. Not y/ours.

Remember that this doesn’t mean that you or I won’t have hurt feelings or disappointments. Let’s not let that define who we are or impede y/our self-worth. We need to move forward and be objective.

In reality there is only one that can present an expectation to all of humanity and that is the creator.  If I give away all I have, and if I deliver up my body to be burned, but have not love, I gain nothing. 

“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare/well being and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.”

“Feed your fears and your faith will starve. Feed your faith, and your fears wills.” Max Lucado

“Put your expectations on God, not on people.”  ― Joyce Meyer

“Strive for excellence, not perfection, because we don’t live in a perfect world.” ― Joyce Meyer

Brian Tracy – Your attitude is an expression of your values, beliefs and expectations.

So as Chuck Swindoll will say; The remarkable thing is, we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day.

Choosing to be positive and having a grateful attitude is going to determine how you’re going to live your life.  Joel Osteen

So we are back to the questions without comparison, undue pressure, but move out of our comfort zone to make a difference.

So This is Christmas and What have you/I Done?

So what will we do for:

    • Family
    • Charity
    • Neighbor
    • Job
    • Character
    • Personal Growth
    • Thankfulness
    • Pay it Forward
    • Having Fun
    • Peace

Now What are we gonna do about our unfinished business?

 

Would you like to take a few minutes to listen to these videos; thanks.

It has been said that when ready for commitment; Kissing helps us choose a great mate. I read somewhere that the endorphins produced by kissing are more than 200 times more powerful than morphine.

Kissing is so great that it helps us live longer and enhances self -esteem, a great de-stressor exercises facial muscles and of course there is a bonus; Kissing burns 6 calories.

There is a motherly, sisterly, friendly kiss that is important to relationships. It is a wonderful, kind, loving gesture.

It is simply splendid to hold your little child inside your hug and just kiss their little cheek.  It is one of the most wonderful thing in the world.  It is also a most wonderful privilege to be able to hold your little grandbaby and just kiss their little cheeks and squeeze their chin with delight. To kiss your grandbaby Goodnight is more wonderful than kissing an angel.

Day 26 nanny and emma

Blowing Kisses; how cute is that. Blowing kisses ‘see you later’ type kisses is marvelous cause you know you will see your child or grandchild later. Wow you cannot beat a child’s love.  SO sweet is a child’s love.

Kisses, even to the air, are beautiful.

Louis Armstrong sang a song A Kiss To Build A Dream On – Lyrics by Bert Kalmar, Harry Ruby and Oscar Hammerstein II in 1935.

Give me a kiss to build a dream on
And my imagination will thrive upon that kiss
Sweetheart, I ask no more than this
A kiss to build a dream on ….
Give me a kiss before you leave me
And my imagination will feed my hungry heart
Leave me one thing before we part
A kiss to build a dream on
When I’m alone with my fancies…i’ll be with you
Weaving romances…making believe they’re true
 
Give me your lips for just a moment
And my imagination will make that moment live
Give me what you alone can give
A kiss to build a dream on
(instrumental break)
When I’m alone with my fancies…i’ll be with you
Weaving romances…making believe they’re true
Give me a kiss to build a dream on
And my imagination will thrive upon that kiss
Ah sweetheart, I ask no more than this
A kiss to build a dream on

LOVE

What is love?  The short list.

  • emotion
  • affection
  • affirmation
  • virtue representing human kindness, compassion
  • actions toward others
  • compassionate
  • consideration
  • communication
  • forgiveness
  • gateway
  • gracious
  • sacrifice
  • honor
  • laughter
  • pay it forward
  • personal attachment
  • present- in the moment
  • respect
  • sexual
  • not envious
  • not abusive
  • not angry
  • not selfish
  • not hurtful
  • not compromising

 

Here are a few quotes highlighting love:

Jonathan Edwards said, “Love is the sum of all virtue, and love disposes us to good.”

Mother Teresa said, “The hunger for love is much more difficult to remove than the hunger for bread.”

“If a man shuts his ears to the cry of the poor, he too will cry out and not be answered.” – Proverbs

The strength of love is shown in great things; the tenderness of love in little things.”  Robert C. Chapman

Today I want to be  a prompt and a reminder that love and appreciation is very important. It is true our feelings come and go and we oft’ become disoriented in life. Anytime we are side tracked we can find our way back by looking at the perfect example of God’s love.  He invented love.  

Like a lot of other things, love can be enjoyed or abused. Casual or appreciated. Genuine love is an unconditional, sacrificial, kind, caring, faithful, expressive, mature, compassionate, respectful, lifelong commitment. If we say we are Christian and do not love then we do not know truth but have become a liar.

Love is not supposed to be painful. A lot of people misrepresent the Bible and say we have to be obedient to husbands at any cost. Nowhere in the Bible does it say that. Peter did say that wives should respect the authority of their husbands in order to promote harmony within the family; as well as to submit to one another in mutual respect. What the Bible is not suggesting is for wives to become doormats nor feel inferior. If you are an abusive person, please seek help now. Don’t wait until you’ve made a terrible mistake that you will never be able to correct. If you are being abused, please talk to someone you can trust, whether it be a family member, a counselor, a friend, a pastor, a teacher or a doctor. Don’t delay.

Love should be at the forefront of everything that you and I do. Without love, our speaking and doing is noise! Let’s focus on kindness and goodness .

I encourage you to work on your relationships. My prayer for you is a complete, safe and happy relationship.

This week take time to read the entire book of the Song of Solomon.[check the end of this blog to direct you the site] The focus of Song of Solomon/Songs is not progeny but of passion. “Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth—for your love is more delightful than wine.”

Do you still get the butterflies when you think of your love? Romantic and sexual  love is an incredible gift from God so don’t give it to just anyone and it will be a wonderful, worthwhile adventure.

You are free to believe as you wish but for me I follow God’s word, the Bible. God wants us to be blessed in love within the context of the marriage. I believe God wants to us to wait for marriage to express sexual love.

At an early age; I envisioned being in a marriage relationship, where there is no shame or bashfulness. You can express every physical desire and have a deep, expressive, loving, wonderful relationship. Ahh  here you can share your hearts, your dreams, your goals, your strengths, your weaknesses, your present, your futures, and your bodies together and without shame!

I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God. [Romans 12:1-2]

I hope you make time to have a love relationship with your partner, family and with God.

His Rose

A rose
Pink yellow white red or blue
Reminds me of you
Gently takes the thorn
From my skin
Silk and scent
Takes me to the place
Where we spent
Love’s first passionate kiss
Perfection
Is your silhouette
My love is greater
Than ten thousand red
Not a blast of hurry
Stayed on love and bliss
Set free
Unending love forever mine
Like the petals fold
My heart in thankful prayer
Inhale again aroma sweet
Your beauty smile and living
In celebration
Nothing says
I love you
Like His single rose of June

“I hate endings. Just detest them. Beginnings are definitely the most exciting, middles are perplexing and endings are a disaster. . . . The temptation towards resolution, towards wrapping up the package, seems to me a terrible trap. Why not be more honest with the moment? The most authentic endings are the ones which are already revolving towards another beginning. That’s genius.” ― Sam Shepard
