Love is on the rise as it searches out broken, lonely, wounded, scared, discouraged, angry and bitter hearts to pour itself in. We’re asking if you or someone you know is in need of love, let us know immediately! No-one should be without love.
Hugs and love from me to you. Valarie
Good morning everyone! I would ask, ‘What do you see?’ but instead, I’ll tell you what I see. A reason to be thankful for all that I have.
These young mothers and children snuggled close together would be a beautiful site if it wasn’t for their situation and surroundings. It doesn’t matter if it was bad choices on her part or unfortunate circumstance. Too many people today would see this pic and start posting cruel, racist and heartless words. Is this a sign of how society is becoming self-absorbed? Has the heart and love of man indeed grown cold?
Regardless, poverty has faces and affects all races.
All I want to do is reach out and hold them both and help them to make everything ok. I understand not everyone can be or wants to be helped but that doesn’t mean I can’t try!
I would rather they tell me no them assume and never try.
Hugs and Love from me to you! Valarie
Far too often we allow others to take us for granted. We do it out of fear, love and even devotion. Our misery has become comforting because it’s better than being alone.
Take a look in the mirror; you are more than a door mat for someone to rest their feet on. You’re not the giver of all receiver of none.
Don’t let others take you for granted! Kindness isn’t a weakness and your humility isn’t a stepping stone for others to walk on.
Don’t be afraid to walk away from someone who doesn’t see the value in you. Walking away may help you find your way.
Love in action – Valarie
This time of the year, hearts are open and the spirit of giving is in the air. Kindness can be seen and felt from people who are normally caught in their own lives and needs. Children are excited as they count down the days to Christmas and vacation. It truly is a special time of the year for most.
Let us remember those who are not as fortunate, blessed even to enjoy this festive time of the year. Their only concern is their next meal or where they will lay their heads. Christmas is just another day and gifts will be something for others to enjoy. A child’s only thoughts and words will be “I’m hungry and I’m cold!” as they quietly bow their heads cry because there will be no toys for them to open.
I’m not trying to make anyone feel guilty for what they have, only to remind us to remember the people next door, your co-worker who has been fasting 3 or 4 days a week because they have no money to eat every day and the food at home has to last. Say a prayer for them and if possible share what you have. Embarrassment or pride will make them say they are fine so, don’t ask just give discretely and walk away. They’ll appreciate it more than words can ever express and please don’t wait or expect them to say thank you. If you see them avoid your eyes or, a tear starting to form, know you’ve touched their heart.
Love never fails, so keep showing it! – Valarie
I saw a post from Simple Life on 21 days of gratitude challenge. I thought wow, that’s awesome, 21 days to share why you’re grateful. I’m grateful for the ability to see others through the eyes of love. Regardless of how someone acts, my response is a choice. No-one can make me respond a certain way. My response good or bad is solely on me.
I’m thankful and grateful for all the love, encouragement and support I receive from family and friends, as well as patience and longsuffering of my flaws. I’m grateful to God for creating me the way he has, the more I learn of myself, the more I see how special I am.
With anything else understanding how special you are will help you to see how unique and special others are too!
Having an attitude of gratitude will help to keep you humble and appreciative of everything you’ve been blessed to receive and keep you from comparing yourself to others. Valarie Lovelight
Love chooses to see, believe, and hope for the best!
Infinite love, takes you into the realm of the unlimited, unhindered, unaltered and unconditional.
Remember, love has no boundaries except for the ones we give it. Love never changes people do! Love has no conditions, we do!
Dare to love others infinitely, unashamed and unafraid from the heart, giving of yourself and seeking nothing in return!
Occasionally we need to remind others that they’re not alone! We never know what someone is going through because they always wear a smile. Perhaps things are chaotic and they’re barely able to stay afloat but still they smile through it all. Maybe they’re always mindful of others but no-one is mindful of them.
There really doesn’t need to be a reason to let someone know that you are thinking about them. Do it just because! Let me know that you’re here, you care and you miss them. Do it because you love them! Valarie
Love needs to be seen, heard and felt!
