We are Earth’s Children … shall we grow up now?

~

Please read!

All of us, every single person, is born with amazing potential for growth!

Each of our lives – so very precious,

and necessary!

How can we know the significant difference any one person

when given love, opportunity and education

might make in the tomorrow of our days,

when we, like children, base many of our (adult) decisions

on our personal emotions and preconceptions;

and not on intelligent reasoning?

Poor “life changing” decisions are made:

… in the name of  intolerance,

… in the name of indifference,

… in the name of power,

… in the name of religion,

… in the name of greed,

… in the name of hate!

It defies intelligence and logic to not preserve

the most valuable resource we possess.

The human race (in it’s entirety)!

The most

valuable commodity there is

“Every single one of us!”

Together

there is nothing we can’t accomplish

If we work as one!

We are Earth’s children! But are we still growing?

Faith can shape us, filling our souls with untold riches …

… unless fashioned into a weapon to be

used against others.

Our global citizenship can become a harvest of abundance …

… unless we stratify and divide within ourselves deciding we are superior based on  the false premise of entitlement.

Our capacity for loving (and forgiving) can expand our futures!

Our capacity for hatred and fear can destroy it!

Shall we grow up now?

Going my way?

It’s Friday morning, here in the Northwestern part of my country of America, just a few hundred miles from the Pacific Coast and only a couple miles from the magnificent Columbia River, where I make my home.

I’m sitting here on the patio in the backyard with my first cup of coffee and it is a gorgeous morning. Contemplating today, on what’s been happening in my life, my country and my world. All of which I am a part of!

penny l howeLast fall I had hoped to have things in order so I might go on a world wide tour of our planet (beginning with my country and our nearby neighboring countries.

I have made so many wonderful online friends everywhere and my hope remains for the ability to meet them, in person. I stay very determined with this goal!

It doesn’t seem complicated with today’s transportation, but the complexity of rules, regulations and procedures of traveling to various countries is a whole ‘nother thing! So this will take longer than I had thought.

In the meantime, each day that I blog, I’m meeting even more wonderful people from everywhere and I love it! Something to look forward to, these awesome connections of like-minded creative, caring and loving people. Like You!

On a final note:

dreamstime… I would like to remind everyone that it is SILLY to hate because of skin color, ethnic differences, beliefs and any other demographics (that come to mind) separating us from one another. WE are not each other’s ENEMY! The true enemy is: Lack of Education, Awareness, and Understanding as a result of which these things, Poverty, Cruelty, and the Senseless destruction of life (all kinds) continues to happen. Stop the hatred! It will destroy all of us (humans).

As for myself. One day at a time I will continue to work on making a positive difference, one person at a time! Unconditional Love Rules, sharing and caring follows and happiness results. Anyone want to come along for the ride?

Have the best weekend you can, all my love to all of you,
