August 9th - Center your heart

I don't want to live. I want to love first, and live incidentally.

Zelda Fitzgerald

Sometimes we find it difficult to see the good in people, places, or situations that aren’t to our liking. What we really need is to encourage ourselves to look deeply into all things in our lives to see the inherent goodness at the heart of everything. 


The heart has its reasons of which reason knows nothing.

Blaise Pascal 

In our active, goal oriented culture, we learn to distrust stillness and to engage in busywork on the surface of life. This tendency can blind us to the good that lies at the heart of all things. But all we have to do to see again is stop for a moment, let go of our preconceptions and our agendas, and settle into the very center of our hearts, 


Life is short and we have never too much time for gladdening the hearts of those who are travelling the dark journey with us. Oh be swift to love, make haste to be kind.

Henri Frederic Amiel

I liked that how to live life. I liked especially how it started off with worshiping God; I think it helps put everything into perspective if we do that first, keep God first in our lives and everything else I think will fall into place.
