Chapter 4, Page 17, Book 15

We've got this gift of love, but love is like a precious plant. You can't just accept it and leave it in the cupboard or just think it's going to get on by itself. You've got to keep watering it. You've got to really look after it and nurture it.

John Lennon

April 17th - Love nurtures

The grass is not, in fact, always greener on the other side of the fence. No, not at all. Fences have nothing to do with it. The grass is greenest where it is watered. When crossing over fences, carry water with you and tend the grass where ever you may be.

Robert Fulghum

In today’s society, we're encouraged to move fast, and to covet what we don’t have, instead of nourishing what we do have. We can damage beautiful relationships if we don’t give them the attention they deserve. Much like a plant needs water, love and attention, so do human beings!  

Different plants thrive together in a well nurtured garden. Just as they thrive, they pass on a message to mankind - God created us all to thrive with one another and planted love in our hearts for this reason. Let's learn to embrace each other, knowing Love is all we have to keep us growing and going.

Kemi Sogunle

If you love something you have to protect it.  Every day we have to make choices that ensure the things we love continue to thrive. So if you find a way of life that is good for you, do whatever it takes to keep it. 

To love is to nurture.

Love is like a new born baby it needs to be nurtured. Love is like a flower it needs to be tended. Love is like a garden it needs to be nourished. Loves don't grow on its own, you need to plant it, weed fertilizes, water it and protect it.

I like that; love needs to be nurtured. I realized yesterday I need something to nurture, LOL. Had nurtured son when he lived here, then of course Koda in his final couple years, can nurture hubby, but also time to go out and volunteer here at our new place :)

Tying yours and Betty's comments ans statements together always gives me a time to smile. Smile of things I might know, but they aren't always recalled until SOMEONE mentions them in a Blog entry or comment.
Nurture is definitely a good word. Nurturing Love, even better.

Love this, "If you love something you have to protect it. Every day we have to make choices that ensure the things we love continue to thrive." I agree 100%.
