March 27th -  Love blossoms

The most precious gift we can offer anyone
is our attention.
When mindfulness embraces those we love,
they will bloom like flowers

 Thich Nhat Hanh

Our words, thoughts, attitudes, and actions are all seeds that we sow, and seeds produce harvest. Sow mercy; reap mercy. Sow judgment; reap judgment. Sow kindness; reap kindness. 



Where the mind goes, the man follows. In other words, positive thoughts are precursors to a positive life. On the other hand, anxious thoughts and negative expectations set us up for miserable lives.   You can choose your own thoughts and should do so carefully, since thoughts have a lot of power in your life. 

Don't let negative thoughts lead you into an unhappy life; choose positive thoughts that will strengthen and encourage you and others to have a life of joy, and peace.


Remember: 

In God’s garden of love, you are His forget me not.

I like that thought "the most precious gift we can offer anyone is our attention." It is so true we do reap what we sow; good reminder to make sure we are sowing things we want to reap, like kindness, mercy, forgiveness, etc.

Giving someone attention is important indeed. You are right when you say, "Our words, thoughts, attitudes, and actions are all seeds that we sow."
