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! 💗

And the joy we bring to others, the same with, we are blessed."
