Chapter 5, Page 29, Book 15

A little more patience,
a little more charity for all,
a little more devotion,
a little more love;
with less bowing down to the past,
and a silent ignoring of pretended authority;
brave looking forward to the future
with more faith in our fellows,
and the race will be ripe
for a great burst of light and life.

Elbert Hubbard

May 29th - a little more love never hurts

With a A little help, a little love, a little time, we each can all make a difference!   It's always possible to love a little more.

Love a little more than what is necessary, work a little harder than what is required, be a little kinder than what is usual, give a little bit more than what you feel you can afford, stand in prayer a little longer than what you intended and be a little more patient than what you feel you can handle….it is that little extra effort sparked by sincerity in the heart that makes your ordinary self extraordinary

Since you can't run out of love by loving,  and you can only get better at it, here are few reasons to love a little more each day. 

It gives our life a meaning.  Through loving others your life becomes more meaningful, so in the end of the day it's win win for everyone

Love because it feels just so good and clearly there are so many people who need the feeling of being loved

It attracts more good things because loving helps you to notice all the things you can be grateful for in your life and gratitude is the basis of growth. Once you appreciate the gifts in your life, you keep finding more.

Everyone can do it. You can be broke, ugly, sleepy,  or single, but you can still chose to love 

There are thousands of ways to do it. Expressing our love is such a creative thing. We can choose simply sending positive thoughts towards someone or to cook a dinner for your friend.

 The most common ways that people express love are through words of affirmation, gifts, acts of service, quality time and physical touch. We can all make the effort to expand upon these endlessly and have fun doing it.

 Think of your fellow man 
 Lend him a helping hand 
 Put a little love in your heart…

by Jackie DeShannon, Randy Myers, and Jimmy Holiday.

I like how we can just give a little bit more; it is possible to do that; just a bit more every day and what a different world this could be.

My daddy always had a bucket of old nuts and bolts. When he would have me digging thru it for another nut like the one I just found and I would say,'There is not another one here daddy."
His answer was always the same, "There is always one more in there." When I dug a little more I found he was right.

I agree with Jackie DeShannon we should all put a 'little love in our hearts.' The world would be a better place.
