Even though land seems to be in the middle of nowhere, I see a beautiful sky full of clouds with the sun’s light radiating through and between them. The ground to the left has been prepared to yield crops in its season. The field to the right has the potential to produce an abundant harvest as well. But for right now, it’s carpeted by grass and inviting passerby’s to sit, lay back and enjoy the view even picnic. A road well-travelled that says all are welcome! I see openness, potential, beauty, endless possibilities, peace, transformation, inspiration and a beautiful canvas to dream about the future.
What do you see?
Hugs and love from me to you! Valarie
It’s said that some of the loneliest people are in a room full of people but no-one can see their emptiness inside. They feel like they are on a road with no-one and no help in sight.
They smile and laugh but inside they’re crying out for help. Maybe the obstacles they are facing require more strength then they have or, the burden is too heavy for them to bear.
When discouragement and depression comes they can become vulnerable to suicide. Not because they want to die but because they can’t see any other options.
The tunnel becomes real as it offers a light of hope that they can escape the pain and torment. The light promises a new beginning someplace else or at least the end of suffering.
Lonely people can be anyone at any time in any stage of life. Reach out to those you see in need. Take the time to listen to their heart because you may not ever get another chance. Don’t brush aside their concerns because it seems insignificant to you.
Remember, we are all unique. What you can handle, I may not be able to. What you easily brush off may feel like a heavy weight to me. What may seem like no big deal to you is everything to me!
Love is real and powerful. Show more love in your words and actions to those around you starting today. Listen to someone ramblings; you just might help to save their life.
Hugs and Love from me to you! Valarie
Is love slipping away or, within her reach?
How many times have you looked back over your life and wish you could change something’s. How many times have you said or thought, ‘If only I knew then what I know now’.
The past is history, today is now and tomorrow is unknown.
There are people who planned for tomorrow yesterday but never lived to see it today. There are people who have plans for tonight but won’t live beyond this afternoon.
Enjoy every moment! Love every minute! Hugs & Love from me to you. Valarie
I had an amazing time in Las Vegas 2 weeks ago. If you haven’t been to the Grand Canyon…Go! Words and pictures can’t describe the view, feel and beauty of the scene.
I met up with two of my girlfriends for a great time. More pics and posts to follow. Until then…
Enjoy life where you are right now. Learn to love and appreciate those around you. Never settle being second in the life of others and especially your own. Like the Grand Canyon, you worth goes far beyond the eyes can see. Each formation tells a story and those who value you will take the time to discover what it is… a National Treasure!!!
Hugs and love from me to you.
Within your hands is the ability to show and be at peace with others. This peace will not always be welcomed or appreciated, don’t let that stop you. Be at peace with all people whenever possible. Never let anyone still your peace or break it!
Most importantly, be at peace with yourself. Love and Peace goes hand in hand, so next time you extend a hand, raise a hand, wave a hand etc., think of peace. Valarie
Love in action – Peace and love makes a better person.
There are days when I feel like I’m being judged. I take the path least travelled. I walk where others wouldn’t think twice about going and I purpose to love the unlovable. Am I different, special, bold, brave, daring, fearless, unique or more equipped? NO! I’m just me trying to love others the way God does.
I’ve walked through storms and have been tossed, drenched, cold, hungry, alone, lonely and left to drown but I survived because of LOVE himself seeing me through. The storms have strengthened me and opened my eyes to see others in the midst of their storms and extend a hand of love.
My storms have molded my heart and continually transform me into the love I have received from above!
So, the next time you see me in a storm, encourage me through because it might just be for you! – Valarie
As always, I believe in celebrating the uniqueness of each individual. We’re not carbon copies. We may be similar but never the same. Even identical twins have differences, not matter how subtle, if you pay attention. With that said, be proud of who you are. Never compare yourself to someone else because you’ll always fall short in your eyes. When you look in the mirror don’t focus on what you don’t have or how you don’t look. Learn to appreciate who you are and learn to love being you! I’ve learn this over the years with myself. Change what you can if that will make you a better person not just a prettier one. Happiness starts from the inside out not the outside in. Be outstanding by being you!
P.S. If you want to feel better about yourself, help someone else to feel better about themself! Just a thought.
Love & Hugs from me to you! Valarie
Let today be more than the giving of gifts. Give what cannot be lost, broken, returned, given away, pushed to the side or devalued. Give the gift of LOVE! When it is genuinely given, joy always follows and leaves a lasting impression in the life of the recipient.
Wishing all a Merry Christmas filled love, joy, peace, kindness, self-control, goodness, gentleness, patience, faithfulness and blessings. Valarie
