It takes hands to build a house, but only hearts can build a home.

Chapter 6, Page 28, Book 15

Though no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending. 

 Carl Bard

June 28 - now is the time for love

What can anyone give you that is greater than this precious little instant known as 'now'?

We all have at least one thing in our life that never seems to get done. By bringing that task to the top of the list and promising ourselves that we will do it as soon as possible is an act that could free a tremendous amount of energy in our lives. Doing things we don't want to do, or that scare us, creates flow in our lives and allows us to grow.  

We see the world as we are.
Remember the last bad day you had? Chances are you ended up in a grumpy mood and feeling fed up. Even though the sun may have been shining or people all around you were happy and laughing - you were miserable, which meant the day was bad no matter how you looked at it.

If you're depressed, think of the excitement that life offers. If you feel stressed look for opportunities with optimism in your heart. If you're lonely, realize the world is full of friendly people and go out and meet them.

By choosing to see the joy in the way things are, you'll soon feel the joy yourself!

Cancel the pity party. Love the people God brings to you.

I like that quote from Max Lucado. Life is too short to have too many grumpy days. We miss out on so much when we are in bad moods. Always good to find joy in pretty much anything and everything.

I'm heading to that chore later tonight. Shoes in closet, you're going to be reorganized. Your time has come! Thanks for the gentle push.


That Carl Bard quote has made my day, "Though no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending."
