From every human being there rises a light that reaches straight to heaven. And when two souls that are destined to be together find each other, their streams of light flow together, and a single brighter light goes forth from their united being.
Have you ever noticed the streams of light through the clouds. I think of the escalator to heaven, and this.
Some churches have a candle lighting service as part of the wedding of two people.
Love is light. Love does not fail. Love is imperfect. Love exceeds all of mans desires. Love grows like seeds when tended with care. Love is gentle .Love is kind. Love does not judge.
I can keep going.  I believe in Love.  I can not help it.  I even believe that we are supposed to love our enemies.  Yes I do.
Sometimes love is a hard pill to swallow. Not all that we want or think that we want is good for us. Sometimes the person we love or think we love does not love us back. Sometimes that person dislikes us deeply. Sometimes love turns to hate.  That person may be a friend,a spouse, a love, a child, a stranger we have not any knowledge of.
Truth be told I can not think of anyone I hate.  I may not agree with the opinions or behavior of some, but they have the right to be who they are.
How many of us have a relative that we can not stand to be in the same building with? Some are so revolted they can not be in the same city.  Some will just ignore that person, others will antagonize them. Some will do all they can to poison the minds of people they know ,family,friends,and acquaintances.
How many of us have walked into a store or restaurant and just had that awful feeling of  nasty.  Yes hate does change the atmosphere.  Love changes the atmosphere too.
Have you ever just felt that warm fuzzy feeling?   Know that when you meet someone for the first time that there is something really special about them?   Look into their eyes and there is a sparkle, a glimmer, twinkle or just something you can not fathom?
When that happens  you know you have been touched by something special.
Love is special, it touches your heart,your soul so deeply that you  are changed.
I know that feeling , I have felt it several times.  I also know that is  special, and worth remembering.
I hope that each of you find this feeling, remember it and embrace it.
There is nothing quite like it.
with love,

Allelujiah , the Lord our Messiah’s birth celebration draws nigh.

This is a season of love. We are to love our neighbors, as ourselves.   The feast of His birth should be filled with joy.

There are so many people who do not even have a roof over their heads, food on their tables, clothes to wear,no medical care,jobs or family to be with.

Yet some of us seem so full of ourselves that we can just create havoc. I do not get this.  We do not know each other, how we live, what the pain in our lives is. We do not know the humbleness or beauty of the spirit of the one we attack.

The fact of the matter is that we are all people, we bleed when cut, die without love,suffer when we are hurt.

I pray that all people receive the blessings they need to accomplish the desires of their hearts and souls.  I ask God to bless my enemies, as they are His children too.   I am not being holier than thou, rather I have learned in my life that there are many more important things than me.

I do need to learn that I am valuable, and have to learn that it is ok not to be the answer to everyone’s problems. I do need to learn to take care of me for a change.

I have to admit that I would still reach out to  help my detractor’s. That is my nature. I have been bitten by the good Samaritan bug.  When we learned that in Sunday School,  I knew what it felt to be the injured person. I knew I could help those around me, and not let the other person down.  I am far from perfect, and I still try to be a good person. I will not let anyone take that away from me.

The truth in the world is that some people prefer to be sheep and be lead. Others will be leaders, whether  they want to be or not.  They take the initiative to do for others and show the world that love does exist.

They have the faith in their fellow human being. They believe as I do that most people are good. I want to believe that, so I choose that path.

I will not let anyone change the way I behave toward others or that I believe people are good.   I am responsible for myself.  That is enough for any one person to deal with.

“I pray that all who read this blog will be blessed by God.

I pray that peace enters their hearts and minds. I pray for my enemies that they will know forgiveness.   I pray that I can be the woman God wants me to be. I am a work in progress. amen”

I am still quite sure that being nice to folks is the way I want to go. For my friends who have asked why I just tell the unhappy blogger that she should either take a long walk off a short pier, jump in front of a bus, tie her tongue in a knot, or to do something to herself beginning with a F.

Well although those are what some will do, for me I am just finding forgiveness suits me.  Anger,hostility,being cruel are an ugly way to live one’s life.  I find that letting God handle the hate etc is so much easier.  I am equally capable of verbal jousting, and have been a public speaker on several occasions.  I do not find it necessary to jump on the hate bandwagon. There is too much hate in this world as it is.

If I am to succeed in being a good person for the sake of honoring God, then ,I am going to have to keep being nice.  It takes a stronger individual not to retaliate in kind, my gramma would say. I hope that I am that strong person. I will keep casting bread on the water.   I want to be more kind in my actions and words.  It does not matter what the person thinks. What matters is how I feel about me, was I doing the right thing? Was I the best Patti I can be, or will I be any happier by being rude,cruel,or mean.   I think we all know the answer to that one.

Some people want to cause trauma in this world for their own reasons. Drama belongs on a stage, not in my life.

I wish you blessings, peace,love and the joy that freedom can bring.   grammasrunamuck/Patti
