Honor Love



why all men

honor love

is because

it looks up,

and not down;



not despairs."

~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

Look up into the eyes of the beloved and see the gleam

of happiness that permeates the soul.

Look up to and elevate those who think of others, share

the love and understand that God does not make any junk.

Honor is your true worth and stature based on the

harmony of your actions.

Your honor is the honest and true feelings that

establish one's personal dignity and character.

Today, be honorable, aspire to be loved by others the

way your Higher Power loves you when you do His will.

Happiness is honoring love.

Happiness is helping someone help themselves.

The Possible





is lit




~ Emily Dickinson

If it has a name that means some body has

done that or thought of that.

If it doesn't have a name, and it is something that

promotes kindness and love, helps people become

more patient and tolerant, helps to make this world

a better place, imagine that.

Today, create the thought, the word, the name

that will signal the beginning of world peace.

Today, let you imagination run rampant,

become the person God wants you to be.

Happiness is knowing that anything is possible.

"Today is not

how can our

works and


if they are

always to be the fittest, continue always the same?

Change, indeed is painful; yet ever needful;

and if memory have its force and worth,

so also has hope." ~ Thomas Carlyle

The only constant in God's world is that things will change.

What you hope for, what you work for, what you live for,

even your understanding of your Higher Power, will change.

Grow wise, accept, have gratitude, embrace the challenge

of the change and know that God will not bring to you

anything that He will not see you through.

Always remember that the joy is in the journey,

if you are happy now you will be happy

when you reach your destination.

Happiness is hope that things will change.

~ Hosea Ballou

Happiness is an attitude that dwells within your soul.

People, who you may rely upon to give you happiness

may not always be there when you need them.

Places, that you may depend upon to give you happiness

will change tomorrow because God's world is always changing.

Things, that you think will make you happy will disappear,

become old and broken, become obsolete, and eventually

will be throw out by the children.

Today, be cheap, have a happy soul.

Today, don't pay for the counterfeit,

rely on God to give you what you need.

Today, be grateful, and if you look closely enough

you will discover that God has already given you

everything you need to be happy.

Happiness is not paying for the counterfeit.

evil." ~ Aristotle

Evil, calamity, disaster, hurt feelings or a stubbed toe

will cause the pain, the fear is how you handle it.

Fear not, let go and let God.

Fear less, learn to avoid the evil, the mean people,

the places where disaster is pending, and above all

watch where you are walking.

Fear is not knowing.

If you do not know, ask a friend, reach out for help,

look for opinions from both sides of the fence and

seek to put balance in your life.

Do not try to hide from fear by ritual or worship,

but allow your soul to bask in the Light of Knowing,

a loving Higher Power who will teach you faith.

Happiness is giving your fears to God.

blind." ~ Mahatma Gandhi

Retribution is payment for both good and bad,

but what about the accidents?

Could the accident have been prevented or was the

action premeditated??

People, places and things in your life will be better

if you seek the better and the accidents will occur

less frequently.

Keep kindness and love in your heart, practice patience

and tolerance and you will not have as many accidents.

It is no accident when you are doing the will of your

loving Higher Power, the God of your understanding.

Today, be not judge and jury, ask your Higher Power

to show you how love can be the best retribution.

Happiness is no accident and requires no retribution.

or said


at last to me." ~Walt Whitman

God will not let you get away with anything that is not kind,

loving, patient and tolerant and the best that you can be.

Guilt, shame and remorse are the rewards for being mean,

selfish, self-centered, grandiose and arrogant because in

the end it is always just between you and God.

Life is the mirror and the people, places and things that you

choose to surround yourself with will reflect your true heart.

Today, no matter where you go, no matter who you go with,

let your mirror be bright and shiny and a good reflection

of the Great Creator who made us all.

Action Not Words

"Most men

use of their

speech than

own understanding." ~ George Savile

Just keep talking and you will eventually tell me

how little you know.

Today, it is the actions, not the words, that will

show God and His world where your heart is.

Be kind, hold the door open, and if you need words,

please and thank you will suffice.

Be loving, smiles and hugs work well, and if words are

needed, tell someone that God loves them and so do you.

Be patient and tolerant, bite your tongue, no toe tapping,

no big sighs, just words of encouragement to get on with

doing the will of your loving Higher Power.

Be the person God wants you to be, a good example,

all action and very few words.

Need a word, can't find the right expression, pray,

and allow the Light of the Universe to guide you.

Happiness is saying the next right thing.

There is a God today, and it is not you.

Don't worry, be happy, take, make, do whatever

you can to have this life be the best there ever was.

The only thing standing between having a great day

and having a lousy day is your attitude.

People, places and things will try to waste your time,

God will give you the chances, the choices are yours.

Today, be God's Timex, take the beating

and just keep on ticking.

Today, forgive and forget, get on with your life,

the Clockmakers world hum like Rolex.

with the




the simplicities." ~ Norman Vincent Peale

Simple is I.

I love, I need and God will provide.

Complex is we.

Is that what we, us, they, want or need ?

Worry, stress, unrealistic expectations, fear,

and all of the negative thoughts and feelings

could drive a insane person to drink.

When is enough, enough??

Keep it simple; when I think of others and I do,

from a kind and loving heart, what I and my God

have the chance to do, things are done successfully.

Sanity is simplicity.

not thyself

in thy

faith in God

if thou hast

not charity

for thy

neighbor." ~ Francis Quarles

Faith without action is dead.

God has made this world reciprocal:

you give, you get;

you get and you share what you get,

and you will receive more.

Good alone is selfish, self-centered, smug,

complacent, grandiose, self-flattering and mean.

Have faith, God was wise to make us feel better

only by sharing the good.

Charity begins at home, a good place to practice, but

it lives on in the works that do the will of a loving God,

a Higher Power of your understanding, your acts of

random kindness and unconditional love.

Happiness is knowing that charity is from the heart.

Do you believe that what the teacher, the preacher,

the baker, the candlestick maker or the Indian chief,

told you was the last word from God ???

Don't believe.

Mahatma Gandhi

Patience begins at home.

God, family, friends, neighbors, fellow travelers,

church, synagogue, temple, wat, mosque, tribe, or

whatever meeting you may attend, your patience

must always begin with Self.

What disturbs us about others is usually what we find

wrong in ourselves; grandiose, arrogant, liar, cheater

thief, selfish, self-centered, angry, mean and insensitive

to the needs of others.

Your list is yours to deal with.

"Let God's will be done and what is the lesson I can learn

Being loved by

~ Lao-Tzu

To love and be loved is very easy

when there are no expectations.

Self love, family love, friends love, people love, pets love,

God love, they all matter and when you put them all

together they make for a very happy, joyous and free life.

Ask your Higher Power to give you the guidance

to find the balance in your love

Do not love only the healthy and happy, ask God for the

strength to have compassion for the sick and suffering,

learn to know tough love.

Do not seek to have everyone love you,

The definition of gentle is doing the will of a loving Higher Power.

It is good to know that the Devil lives at the bottom of the abyss,

he lurks in the shadows, he occupies the heart of mean and

angry people, however, it is important to impart that knowledge

but leave your legacy as knowing how to walk in the Light.

Following the path of God will steer you clear of the abyss,

keep you in the Light, and lead you to gentle friends who have

Hugs should be gentle.

Kind words and gifts from the soul are gentle.

"The hell

the hell we make

by habitually fashioning

our characters in the wrong way." ~ William James

Want Heaven? , fashion your character in a manner that is

the right way, the way that does the will of a loving God.

Seek through self examination, prayer and meditation to

improve your conscious contact with the Higher Power

of your understanding and you will intuitively know

how to handle life on God's terms.

Prayer is a conversation, from the heart, and meditation

is letting you soul listen for the answers to your prayers.

If your prayer is a simple "thank you",

please have Heaven here on Earth

What you may consider a defect, a quirk, a nuance of character,

an oddity, a style, a twitch or a tick others might see as a

normal and natural way of being just another soul.

Thank God we are all different, no one can imagine how boring

this world would be if we all met the same standards and

Boring might be OK, but only if the standards and thoughts

to see

~ Fyodor Dostoevsky

Love everyone.

The Latin language did it right when they had

three separate words for love; amo, amas, amat,

I love, you love, they love.

I love my soul mate, that one special person in my life

who is my better half, the person who completes me,

the person who walks beside me as we seek to do God's will.

You love family and friends, those people who share

a common blood bond, a spirit of togetherness,

a desire to help each other do the will of their Higher Power.

They love everyone, a love for God's world just as it is,

to be shared, improved and delivered to the next generation

as a legacy of love.

Do not antagonize yourself today, harbor no hateful thoughts,

do not entertain jealousy or envy, leave your false pride at

home, instead learn to practice your many types of love,

and know that God intended for everyone to love and be loved.
