“We have all the love in the world.
If that’s all that we have ~ you will find we need nothing more”*
With love and affection,
*lyrics from the song "We Have All The Time In The World by DAVID, HAL/BARRY, JOHN
There is beauty everywhere in life. It is our own personal natures inside of us that detract from this rightness when we focus on what’s wrong with everything instead of concentrating on what’s right and making that even better. Should be simple, but it isn’t ~ definitely something for us to work on however, beginning today.
Share yourself; with love, compassion, forgiveness, understanding. Give of yourself; care, reach out, think of others and their needs.
“The light in your soul shines brightly, illuminating life’s beauty when you make a positive difference. I promise this is true.”
~ Penny L Howe, 2014
Are you your own person? Congratulations but I caution you to remember the following:
A necessary component of independence will always be the ability to recognize not only one’s right to freedom, but also the acknowledgement (at the same time) of one’s own short-comings; to know that within your sphere of self- determination there also exists a need for others.
An abyss, exists as a deep and bottomless pit and if you were to find yourself within a physical chasm of this kind, there would be no way to remove yourself without the aid from others – and so it is in life. No matter how free, independent and “on our own” you wish to be, you cannot succeed without support.
Autonomy or free will of self, serves no useful function unless it is partnered with the shared need and responsibility of and for others.
Life shared is life well lived. No man or woman is an island, nor should they be. Our need for one another has never been greater than it is today.
Let us build no further gulfs between each other, instead, close the existing gaps. Let us cultivate and grow within (and in spite of) our differences. There can be no autonomous abyss where free thought is coupled with the partnership of love and understanding among all.
Have an excellent week, with great affection,
Here I am telling you a story instead of writing it. I do not pretend to have any acting skills what-so-ever, but am hopeful you will still enjoy my short story narrative!
Hope you liked the story, make today your happy day – you are loved!
I light a single candle
Shining peace upon the land,
I give thanks for all my treasures
Nurtured close at hand,
My heart does store most precious
All the love that it can hold,
Gentle thoughts do comfort me
Your blessings are foretold.
I’ve seen you in my mind’s eye
I’ve felt you in my soul,
Reaching I embrace you
And lovingly enfold.
We all were made for loving
To our hearts be true,
And as the glowing candle
I share my peace with you.
~ Penny L Howe
On the first day of happiness, a smile upon my face
I send a loving greeting filled with warmth and grace.
To all who live upon this earth who share with me this day
I wish you all the very best in every single way!
*With sincere affection, Penny
I have definitely had days like this! Anyone else?
Have fun on your last day of 2012. Make it a good but safe one!
Celebrate the new year with as much diversity in your life as you can!
It’s a very good thing!
Here are three extremely short videos made by people just like you and I.
The first two videos are by talented young people offering their own fresh approach to diversity.
I think we can learn from that too! Enjoy, learn and be inspired!
Happy New Year,
