Chapter 1, Page 31, Book 20

Spread love everywhere you go; first iof all in your own home.  give love to your children , to your wife or husband, to a next door neighbor…Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier.  Be the living expression of God’s kindness; kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your soul, kindness in your greeting.

Mother Teresa

January 31st - Love never fails 

Love all, trust a few, do wrong too none.

William Shakespeare

This is the last day of January and tomorrow we’ll be celebrating the month of Love, February.  Every post for the next month is going to be about love.  It’s one thing the world needs more of.  If we could all spread a little love everywhere we go, what a wonderful world it would be. 

It’s not the love we receive that completes us, but rather embracing love as something we give. Love is the quality that erases prejudice and moves us to forgive, gives us peace of mind in a turbulent world and keeps us sane.

Love sees broken souls and heals them.  Love hears plaintive cries and answers.  Love discerns a need and fulfills it.  Love does not see color, race or features; love sees people.  The power of loves knows no boundaries, no walls,  It holds no record of misgivings, but believes in second chances.

Love does not ask for anything in return.  For when we give love and see the difference that one act of love can make, the feeing is priceless, indescribable.

Sometimes, because of our experiences in life, we forget how to love, but we should always remember that without love we lose the most important part of us.  

Love is more important than money.  We work to provide for ourselves and our family, but without love there is little to inspire you to work harder or to have nicer things  There is no one to leave the things you’ve worked hard for in life and you can’t take them with you when you pass away.  Unconditional love is priceless.

Love recognizes no barriers.  It jumps hurdles, leaps fences, penetrates walls to arrive at it’s destination full of hope.  

Maya Angelou.

Looking forward to your February posts on love, Ma! The world definitely needs more love and it can get it if we just love others like we love ourselves!

WHAT? and I thought January was the month of love. Oh well, Sherry will be agreeing with you of course, and yep She is my VAlentine.
Quotes by Mother Teresa are perfect for Love. She definitely exhibited it. As always looking forward to your words of wisdom.

Such a heart-felt post! Jackie DeShannon said it best, "What the world needs now is Love..... not just for some but for everyone."

We need love to thrive, and showing love to others makes our lives worthwhile. And... it doesn't cost a single penny to be kind.


love is the breath of life. it makes us whole. "kindness in your face" can bring happiness to all who see it.
