Gift-Of-Love

Greetings everyone!

When we give the Gift of Love, we are giving from our heart without any expectations of receiving in return. We don't have to give from our wallet to be giving, either. When we 'show' we care; when we 'show' compassion, understanding, empathy; when we have and 'show' respect for others; when we do something, even seemingly small like helping another carry something or things or hold the door for another or say something to cheer up another; when we listen to another to actually listen; when we give up just some of our time for another or others are all ways to give the Gift of Love. There are so many ways to give the Gift of Love that do not cost a single cent and giving should be throughout the entire year, not just around Christmas. When we give selflessly, our self worth, self esteem, and self respect are all boosted. Therefore, when we give to others, we gift ourselves as well and no amount of money can buy this for us. "Giving is the joy of living." ~ Artsieladie Quote

Regardless of our faith, in Love we can believe,
For Love's within us all, if we choose to retrieve.
Should we choose to leave Love in a dormant state,
Then we invite into our heart the bitterness of hate.

Those who believe in the power of Love,
Radiate and spread around all the beauty of.
Those who deny Love to flourish within their heart,
Spread misery around, since it's all they can impart.

We have all been blessed with the greatest Gift,
Though some choose to away from Love, drift.
The presence of Love or not is always crystal clear
In how we treat others; how others we revere.

Love is not selfish, cruel, apathetic, unforgiving;
Does not embrace greed or a miserable way of living.
Instead, Love is selfless, compassionate, and kind,
With consideration for others a natural state of mind.

Love is not ego serving, boastful and bragging;
Doesn't tune out a guilty conscience nagging.
Instead, Love is humble, modest, and reserved;
Accountable and accepting of what's deserved.

Love is not jealous, envious, resentful, or bitter;
Nor shallow, spineless, a flip-flopping fence sitter.
Instead, Love cultivates virtue, values, and integrity,
Making real in oneself a comfortable place to be.

When, our Gift Of Love, we cultivate with care,
We then reap to scatter Love seeds everywhere,
Always hoping they'll take root in another's garden bed,
Where there's being tilled the opposite of Love, instead.

When in our hearts we grow Love, we never have to feel
Afraid that another will come along and from us, steal
What we are growing and therefore, in possession of,
Because all they can take from us is some of our Love.

Once in the thief's possession, Love can only grow,
Infiltrate and change the current seeds they sow.
So, when we give the Gift Of Love and without request,
We can know in our heart we have given the very best.

In this day and age of money taking precedence,
Love is still free to receive and to dispense.
Love cannot be bought nor can Love be sold,
Making the Gift Of Love untouchable by gold.

We need not save our Love for special times and places,
Just for special occasions and to gladden special faces,
For the magic of Love is released every time we give
And multiplies within us when the Gift Of Love we LIVE!

Merry Christmas!
💗 Have a Blessed Day! 💗

We set aside 'one' day for thanks to give,
But shouldn't we every day, this way choose to live?
Is this the only day we can be thankful for
All the ways we're blessed, too many to keep score?

We have warm get togethers with our friends and family.
We have good times, feast on good food, substantially.
We express our Love, our caring, and compassion,
But is this the only day for niceness to be in fashion?

We have so much to be thankful for every day we live;
So many ways we're blessed to share and from them, give.
Not just on this day set aside for Thanks Giving,
But throughout the year in our every day of living.

Yet, at the stroke of midnight, as this day ends,
We resort to our old familiar patterns and trends.
Christmas is the same, like sentiments we deploy.
So, why can't we see how giving brings us so much joy?

When we give to others, "truly from our heart",
We make others' lives better and warm our inner part,
Making giving an investment that cannot be surpassed.
Hence, feast on giving, but with taking tend to fast.

Thankfulness and giving fit together like a glove,
Since gratefulness reveals blessings, an abundance of,
Breeding in us generosity, to then with others share,
Since, we've learned, we have plenty we can spare.

Perhaps, with this Thanksgiving, when we give thanks,
We'll also choose to lift ourselves into better ranks
And be among those who, like with their daily bread,
Count their blessings daily and the abundance of, spread.

"If we ALL gave a little, it would add up to a lot
And not a single soul then would ever be forgot."
We would multiply our blessings in ways so profound,
Thanks Giving we'd have to celebrate then year around!

💗 Have a Blessed Day! 💗

Master-Artist

Greetings everyone!

I am always so amazed when I look around and see all the wonderful, Masterly Created creations by God. To me, nowhere is this realization more profound than when I am surrounded by nature. Springtime is the grandest show of life, both with the new birth of and the renewal of life. But autumn just dazzles the eyes with such a splendid array of colour that just can't be unseen. When I think of all the damage and destruction humans have done to our earth and continue to do, I am sickened beyond description.

As I look around, the beauty I do see,
What an awesome picture, painted for you and me!
God, thee Master Artist, Master of Design,
Created ALL this wonder with His Touch Divine.
Only a Master's Golden Brush in every Stroke with Love,
A rainbow for His Palette, across the sky above,
Could possess such Magic, a Power so profound,
To paint in 'living' colour, giving life all around.
