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

Chapter 2, Page 3, Book 19

When you give some of the light from the candle, by lighting another person’s candle there isn’t less light because you’ve given some away — there is more.  That works with love, too.


February 3rd - share some love

Love only grows by sharing.  You can have more for yourself by giving it away to others.

Brian Tracey

Years ago one of my sons asked me how it was possible to love all of my children.  He had just had his first child and couldn’t imagine that I was able to love all of my 7 children as much as he loved his daughter.  I told him that I did love them all because when you share love it only grows and grows.  The the more I had to love, the more love I had.

Truth is when you share anger, rage grows.  When you share love, love grows.and when you spread love, the love comes back to you many times over.  When people love, they want to help, encourage and even rescue others.  People that love want to relieve the suffering of others however they can.  It is by loving people that we can solve the problems caused by others bent on hate.

Love grows by sharing love with others. 

Spread love everywhere you go:  First of all in your house…let no one ever come to you without feeling better and happier.  Be the living expression of God’s kindness; kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile, kindness in your warm greeting.

That is so true that love grows when it is shared. I always say "kill them with kindness" especially if someone is not treating another person fair. Love them and hopefully they'll change their attitude and their ways and become themselves a more loving kind person.

Love was something Mother Teresa did for sure - heard a little blurb about her in church this morning!

Truly beautiful answer to your son. You know it is a logical question once you hold the first one, there is no feeling in the wrold like that. That is said as a man, it is impossible for us to know how you mothers must have felt after carrying them for =months...

Sending Love from a beautiful day in Florida

love makes the world go round. "When people love, they want to help, encourage and even rescue others. "
