Loving One Another

Gift of Love


Dreams are coming true
For those of us who believe
Just live with patience

It’s the gift of time
That will allow us to wait
For God’s best timing

Meantime we bestow
The gift of love on others
Living in “The Dash”

Living in the Dash

This morning I read a post by

Sehr Jalil, Sehr Jalil | is there anything that is not art? | blog
who stated clearly and succinctly on her “About” page
what she STANDS FOR.

It made me think long and hard about what I would write if someone asked me what I stand for. Living in the dash, 1939 – ????, I need to realize that I am on the latter 1/4 of the dash line (if each quarter represents 1/4 of a century – because of course, I intend to live to be 100).

And I’ll still be playing my accordion in 2039… you bet!!

What Do I Stand For?

Give the question some thought and see what you come up with.
Here is what I wrote back to Sehr Jalil. (You should click on that link and see what SHE wrote in her blog about that! Quite interesting!!)

My response:

  • peace
  • love
  • honesty
  • kindness
  • shared joy
  • integrity

I believe these are the teachings of Christ, who said the greatest of these is LOVE. So I send you the gift of love today, my dear WP friends.

What do YOU stand for?

Have a love-filled day.
See ya tomorrow!
