Anytime is the Perfect Time to Put Love into Words

Sometimes things happen in our lives that cause us to stop and think about the things that really matter and the people who are really important.

Today, take the opportunity to tell someone they are very important to you. Tell them how much strength you get from their support, how much comfort from their caring. Tell them they make a difference in your life that you are grateful for.

The greatest gift you can offer is simply to tell someone that they mean a great deal to you and that your relationship is a treasured gift. Offer to them in return the valuable gift of love that they have so generously given to you.

You could wait until someone’s birthday to send flowers or a gift. You could wait until Christmas to tell them how much they mean to your life. You could look at all the holidays to see which one day would have the most meaning, which day would best express your love…

Or you can realize that your loved ones are special everyday. Tell them how much you love them every time you get the chance. Only then will it come close to equalling the love they bring to your life.

Remember that anytime is the perfect time to put love into words.

What is Love?

Love is beautiful. Love is sharing. Love is the giving and taking two people who feel so deeply about one another. Love is sensitive. Love is overwhelming. Love is the most important emotion one can have. But love is not always simple. Love is not always uncomplicated. Love may not always be easy but it is always more than worthwhile.

Love is being happy for the other person when they are happy; being sad for the person when they are sad; being together in good times and being together in bad times. Love is the source of strength.

Love is being honest with yourself at all times; being honest with the other person at all times telling, listening, respecting the truth and never pretending. Love is the source of reality.

Love is an understanding so complete that you feel as if you are a part of the other person accepting the other person just the way they are and not trying to change them to be something else. Love is the source of unity.

Love is the freedom to pursue your own desires while sharing your experiences with the other person the growth of one individual alongside of and together with the growth of another individual. Love is the source of success.

Love is the excitement of planning things together the excitement of doing things together. Love is the source of the future.

Love is giving and taking in a daily situation being with each other’s needs and desires. Love is the source of sharing.

Love is knowing that the other person will always be with you regardless of what happens missing the other person when they are away but remaining near in heart at all times. Love is the source of security.

Love is the source of life.

An unknown author attempted to define “What is love”, a beautiful description that is based on the passage found in Paul’s first letter to the Corinthians, Chapter thirteen:

“Love is not passion, Love is not pride; Love is a journeying side by side. Not of the breezes, not of the gale; Love is the steady set of the seal. Deeper than ecstasy, sweeter than light, Born in the sunshine, born in the light. Flaming in victory, stronger in loss, Love is a sacrament made for a cross.”

Life can be a perpetual romance. It’s true that life changes, but when two really love each other, that love deepens with the changes of life. It matures and enriches life instead of wearing thin like the rings that first were slipped on a finger. Love must be nurtured and kept alive by acts of kindness and thoughtfulness.

Life is short. Don’t forget to say I love you to the one person in this world you value most. Know the importance of repeating what he or she already knows.

Love Is Everything

“Love is kind. It will help to build someone up and be your most loving best friend”

I may speak in tongues of men or of angels, But if I am without love, I am a sounding gong or a clanging cymbal.

I may have the gift of prophecy, And know every hidden truth; I may have faith strong enough to move mountains; But if I have no love, I am nothing.

Love is patient; love is kind and envies no one. Love is never boastful, nor conceited, nor rude; Never selfish, not quick to take offense.

There is nothing love cannot face; There is no limit to its faith, its hope, and its endurance. Love will never come to an end. According to Saint Paul 1st Corinthians 13

“Love listens”

Psalms 119:149 says, “Hear my voice according unto thy loving-kindness.”

When we love others, we listen to them. Sure, it takes time and effort to focus on them and hear what they are saying. But when we do, it shows genuine concern and respect.

J.P. McEvoy once said, “When you talk you are only repeating what you already know — but if you listen you may learn something.”

What a boost to your self-esteem to know that the person you’re talking with is truly interested in your thoughts, opinions, and feelings. The give-and-take of communication is the nourishment that causes every relationships to grow and thrive.

When the author of Psalm 119 pleaded, “Hear my voice according unto thy loving-kindness” (verse 149), he was expressing the truth that the God who loves us also listens to us. Listening is a part of loving.

Listening to your significant other, family and loved ones, friends, or a fellow worker may just what that person needs to be encouraged. Go ahead and listen. God Himself shows that love listens.

Never assume that you know what they’re thinking or feeling. Care enough to pay attention. Hear what being said. Don’t simply nod as you mentally formulate your next response. Few compliments surpass the tribute of your genuine interest. Listen, talk, listen, talk, listen, talk.

Listening may be the most loving thing you do today.

Attitude – Who Should I Be?

By nouveauauplaza

Attitudes are relatively lasting organizations of beliefs which makes us tend to respond to things in particular ways. Actually, attitudes are never seen directly. We infer their existence from what people do. If they seem to act consistently in a similar fashion in a particular set of circumstances, we infer the existence of an attitude which predisposes them to act that way. Attitudes include positive or negative evaluations, emotional feelings, and certain positive or negative tendencies in relation to objects, people, and events.

In addition, one definition of the word attitude [Aeron.] is the position of an aircraft or spacecraft in relation to a given line or plane, at the horizon. Also, it is “the angle of approach” that an aircraft takes when landing. Chris Spicer once wrote: “Attitudes are to life as the angle of approach is flying.” He adds, “Attitude is the way we choose to think about things; attitudes will cause us to react and behave in a certain way.” He also says that attitudes are not in born or accidental. They are learned and absorbed reactions; therefore they can be changed.

In my 23rd year of existence in this lifetime. I was once in an environment with knowledgeable people (having or showing knowledge or intelligence) where I feel convinced to develop my thinking toward myself, others, and life. I recognized my need to make an effort to begin focusing on my growth. As I grow, I discover that it hurts to grow but I discover as I grow. It’s tough – like physical exercise… you may not like it while doing it yet it’s worth the effort for it would make you to become a better version of yourself.

As the time goes by, I stumbled across at the Scriptures in Jeremiah 18:6 saith the Lord, “Behold, as the clay is in the potters hand, so are ye, in mine hand.” I then realized that I am not a finished product yet. God is the great potter… God is my potter and I am His clay. Like the vessel that he made of clay was marred in the hand of the potter so he made it again another vessel as seemed good to the potter to make it. Today, this vessel is far from finished, but I put myself in the Potter’s hands. He keeps working on me and shaping my attitudes and actions.

“Thou art the Potter, I am the clay. Mold me and make me after Thy will. While I am waiting, yielded and still.”

Live Life

“Live Life as if it is your only life to live… because it is! Live life as if it is your chance to give your performance of a lifetime. Life itself is the opportunity we have been waiting for.”

Life is totally unpredictable. It’s going to push you over, kick you while you’re down and hit you when you try to get back up.

Not everything can beat you. Things are going to change you, but you get to choose which ones you let change you.

Listen to your heart. Follow your dreams. And let no one tell you what you’re capable of.

Push the limits. Bend the rules. And enjoy every minute of it. Laugh at everything. Live for as long as you can.

Love all, but trust a few. Believe in yourself and never lose faith in others.

Settle for nothing but only the best. And give 110% in everything you do.

Take risks. Live on the edge yet stay safe. And cherish every moment of it. Life isn’t tied with a bow but it’s still a gift.

Appreciate all the rewards and jump on every opportunity because opportunity doesn’t knock twice. You can put things off until tomorrow. But tomorrow may never come. You seal your fate with the choices you make but don’t give a second thought to the chances you take.

Not everyone’s going to love you, but who needs them anyways. Challenge everything and fight for what you believe. Back down to nothing but give it to the little things in life. After all, that is what makes you.

Forget the unnecessary; Remember everything and what’s important. Bring it with you everywhere you go.

Learn something new. And appreciate constructive criticism. Hate nothing but dislike what you want.

Never forget where you came from and always remember where you are going.

Live Life to its fullest. Have a reason for everything even if it’s totally insane. Find Your Purpose in Life and Live it.

What It Means to Love

Monday

February 04, 2019

Humanity always stands above all of Earth’s other beautiful creatures because of our wonderful capacity to love. Our affections and emotions lead us through a lifetime of enjoying and discovering boundless devotions.

Love moves the human spirit and surrounds the heart that dwells within it. A passion that crosses the bounds of time is one of the best things anyone can ever find.

Love is pure, purposeful, and amazingly quite unconditional. Most of us will climb mountains which are never high enough just to touch the magnificent thing that is love.

To Love…

To love is to share life together to build special plans just for two to work side by side and then smile with pride as one by one, dreams all come true.

To love is to help and encourage with smiles and sincere words of praise to take time to share to listen and care in tender, affectionate ways.

To love is to have someone special one who you can always depend to be there through the years sharing laughter and tears as a partner, a lover, a friend.

To love is to make special memories of moments you love to recall of all the good things that sharing life brings. Love is the greatest of all.

What it means to love is all of the above and so much more.

Love is a hallmark of humankind that we’ve known and experienced since the beginning of time. Our endeavors, dreams, and pursuits are often just means to getting to the most important feeling.

Love simply encompasses everything, and it’s intrinsic worth is a blessing.

And we all must determine for ourselves what love means, where it is found, how it is described, when it is present, and why it is important.

However, I think it is best to first love yourself and spread love to someone else for you can only give of what you truly do have.

… Love is the greatest power in the world, and nothing can stop all the good it can do — make it a part of your life.

Contentment

Saturday, February 02, 2019

Little or Much

As the world evolves and innovates… each generation raises the contentment bar, it seems. With every new technology advance, we seem to need more and more things to be satisfied.

My generation, when I was growing up, we didn’t have Laptop or PC, multiple Mobile devices and other Gadgets. But I hear young people complaining and whining because the one they have isn’t the latest model.

The standards for true contentment, though, know no calendar. The secret of contentment is found in God — not in man’s inventions, creature comforts, techno-toys, or amusement etc. It’s accepting what God has given us, and by His strength making the most of it.

As the Bible passage in Philippians 4:11(KJV) once wrote: “Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.”

Do we have enough?

No matter how much we accumulate, it seems we never have enough. The more we have, the more we want. Most of us are not content with our lot because we want a lot more.

As Henry Kissinger once said, “Tragedy is wanting something very badly and not getting it. But many people have had to learn… that perhaps the worst form of tragedy is wanting something badly, getting it, and finding it empty.”

Even in the most fulfilled lives, there’s still an emptiness that only God can fill. Let Him guide your steps and bless your way, today and everyday.

True contentment comes from our Lord alone. We must ask Him to flood us with His presence and strengthen us with His love, so that we will be satisfied with what He has given. Only then can we rest in contentment.
