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

Chapter 7, Page 14, Book 15

A heart is made of wishes and love makes those wishes come true.

July 14 - If wishes were kisses

 If kisses were the water I would give you the sea,
If hugs were the leaves I would give you a tree,
If love was time, I would give you eternity.

There are many types of kisses. There’s the kiss you give your children. There’s the kiss you give your sister…There’s the kiss you give your spouse!...A kiss is an expression of love and affection. 

Kisses kept are wasted;
Love is to be tasted.
There are some you love, I know;
Be not loathe to tell them so.
Lips go dry and eyes grow wet
Waiting to be warmly met.
Keep them not in waiting yet;
Kisses kept are wasted.


 One word that's worth a thousand pictures. - Inspired by Psalm 85:10 

Faithful love and truth have met; righteousness and peace have kissed.

This verse says that these seeming opposites have met together. They have kissed each other.  As friends and lovers do; as they do who have been long separated; as they do who, after having been alienated and estranged, are made friends again.

Mercy and truth have met together. They are not strangers no matter how far apart we separate them.  Truth reveals the nonnegotiable facts of life and will not compromise. Truth shines light on reality and does not care to hand out sunglasses. The greatest love affair with the greatest kiss is when righteousness kisses peace. 

A kiss is never just a kiss.  

We are blessed with peace through our faithfulness and Love. May we share this peace,  be humble, caring and loving in all we do and say, and share our hope with all.

Sending lots of Love and Kisses your way today !

I do like that scripture you mentioned here, Ma; at one time I had it memorized. I just liked how it said the part of righteousness and peace kissing. So true about the different types of kisses we have and give; a favorite kiss of mine is also a Hershey kiss :)

Yes, a Kiss is NEVER just a kiss. I love it. Good stuff about one of my favorite past times. I get more kisses per day in the motor home than I did int a big house. (smile) I love this RV!
Sweet entry MA! Stormy weather here but cool.


"Truth does indeed shine a light on reality." And "Love is for sure, one word that's worth a thousand pictures." LOVE these quotes.
