This Love Of Which I Speak ~ ~ ~

This LOVE of which I speak . . .

. . . is patient and kind;
love does not envy or boast;
it is not arrogant or rude.
It does not insist on its own way;
it is not irritable or resentful;
it does not rejoice at wrongdoing,
but rejoices with the truth.
Love bears all things,
believes all things,
hopes all things,
endures all things.
Love never ends.

1 Corinthians 13: 4-8

Sending this LOVE to you today Anna Lin

Earth Teach Me

s of s 3b3e695d1a2922a4f5002055119f5371

Earth teach me quiet ~ as the grasses are still with new light.
Earth teach me suffering ~ as old stones suffer with memory.
Earth teach me humility ~ as blossoms are humble with beginning.
Earth teach me caring ~ as mothers nurture their young.
Earth teach me courage ~ as the tree that stands alone.
Earth teach me limitation ~ as the ant that crawls on the ground.
Earth teach me freedom ~ as the eagle that soars in the sky.
Earth teach me acceptance ~ as the leaves that die each fall.
Earth teach me renewal ~ as the seed that rises in the spring.
Earth teach me to forget myself ~ as melted snow forgets its life.
Earth teach me to remember kindness ~ as dry fields weep with rain.
~An Ute Prayer

The Best Kind Of Friend

porch fd2b1c0a4b60c2bc8c6aba7fc244ac8c

The best kind of friend is the one you could sit on a porch with,
never saying a word, and walk away feeling like that was
the best conversation you’ve had.
– Unknown

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Oh the inexplicable comfort of feeling safe with a person —
having  neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words,
but pouring them all out just as they are, chaff and grain together,
certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them,
keep what is worth keeping and then with the breath of kindness blow the rest away.
~ George Eliot OR Dinah Maria Mulock Craik
