These Horns Were Made for TootingToday, share something you love about yourself — don’t be shy, be confident! — but that few other people know about you or get to see very often.
It’s time for that random segment of: Wisdom from a Fortune Cookie!
I save my fortunes from time to time and decided since I couldn’t sleep I’d go through them. I found a real winner!
“You cannot love life until you live the life you love.”
There is a lot of truth in this statement! How many of us are just purely existing? If we are just existing how are we living the life we love?
I know I am living the life I love most of the time…just two young people missing from it. I pray they return some day…enough said on that.
Those that know me know my ultimate saying: “Remember God Loves You and So DO I!” These are just not words…my life is a life of love. As my Tartan Brother always says less hate and more love, and I try to live that to the fullest each day!
So are you leading and living the life you love?
In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Moved to Tears.”
I’m going to first start with a movie that always moves me to tears.
Whenever I watch this movie I always have to have a hankie or a box of tissues near by. The story is so heartwarming and full of love that I cannot help it. If you haven’t had a chance to watch this I highly suggest you do, but have some tissues handy. This is a love story from the beginning in the youth to the end in old age.
The second is a song by Tim McGraw entitled My Little Girl. It reminds me of how much I miss and love my daughter, and how it hurts that she is estranged from me. I know everything in time…but enough time has gone by…
The third is a song by Gary Allan that reminds me of my son and how I miss him and wish he’d let me in instead treating me like a yo-yo.
We all have our faults. We all have our differences and opinions. With that said we need to as a human race to put our faults, opinions and differences to the side and come together and help each other. The gratitude on a person’s face especially when they are a stranger when you extend a hand in true assistance is pure gold! Jesus said in Matthew 25:40 ” ‘I tell you the truth, when you did it to one of the least of these my brothers and sisters, you were doing it to me!” An act of true kindness is a pure gift of love and self-sacrifice!
Be kind to each other, yes we have our differences but that is what makes us humans! Remember it is easily to hate, but it is even easier to love. As Jesus put it Love is the greatest commandment.
Put politics and yes even religion (which is what man says about God and do not forget the man is flawed) aside and come together and see what we can happen when we help each other with no strings attached!
Just my two cents!
As I grow older I miss them more and more. My daughter will be turning 16 in April and my son will be turning 15. They are what is considered Irish twins, for two weeks they are the same age.
I’ve been fighting most of their lives to have a relationship with them…with no luck, every step I take I’m pushed back three miles. So now I’ve gone into the distance and continue to pray that someday they will want a relationship, and hear the truth of what happened. It doesn’t hurt any less but it hurts less in the long run.
After my Dad died I realized that our relationship wasn’t the best and we hadn’t spoken since I was in my late teens. We only have a little time with our parents before they are gone, cherish your parents and let them know your love before its to late.
