The Meaning of Love

loveMorning Inspiration….

 

Love is beautiful. LOVE is a commitment. Love is patience. Love is kind. Love takes work! It doesn’t take vacations. It doesn’t depend on what someone else does or doesn’t do. True love is ever lasting. The degree of love may be raised or lowered, but true love never fails. When you have it, keep it, protect it, nurture it, respect it, cherish it, reciprocate it, because it is rare to find true love. Please understand that love is a GIFT. If you have someone who loves you through thick and thin, consider yourself blessed. If you have someone who stands by your side when you do right or wrong, consider yourself blessed. If you have someone who loves the WORST of you and the BEST of you, it is a sign that someone sees something SPECIAL in you. Your job is to love yourself enough to RETURN the love to the person who loves you back!! Remember these words and you will always be loved. Never forget who loves you! It starts with you!- Tammy Rayson-Brown

What if

FMorning Inspiration…imagine that if God gave us a report card on how we treated each other, our cheating on one another or how we lie, cheat and steal just to get ahead in life. I know we are not perfect, I know I am not and sometimes being honest is scary but always the best policy. When something is not working and you just do not know how to get out of a particular situation…make sure you are honest about everything that you do and even though it might hurt the other persons feelings. They can only respect you for being honest. God always says honesty is the best policy.

In the words of iamrennyren…..Imagine if God looked at a report card every time we asked something of him. if we asked for a new house and he told us no because you didn’t get an A in sharing. What if you asked for a family and he said no to you, you don’t deserve one because you didn’t get an A in commitment. We need to start being more like God and stop judging people by our own mental report cards and giving them the same grace, God is showing/giving us. If God knows none of us are perfect, do we expect everyone else to be? Do not judge others and you will not be judged. Do not condemn others, or it will call come back against you. Forgive others, and you will be forgiven.-Luke 6:37

Inspired….

Came across http://patinspire.org What is Friendship and it got me to thinking about the different friendships I have in my life and are we sharpening each other or are they just dulling my edges. Wanted to share what inspired me this morning and also give you all somethings to ponder on throughout your day.

Thanks http://patinspire.org for my Morning Inspiration….

Friendship is a social system that provides reciprocated comfort, protection and support. Friends share grief, pain, happiness, excitement and disappointment. They become “A single soul dwelling in two bodies.” Aristotle

Many social relationships such as marriage rely on friendship for success. Friendship and intimacy work well together.  

True Friendship is characterized by

  1. Compassion
  2. Empathy
  3. Sympathy
  4. Mutual understanding
  5. Honesty
  6. Trust
  7. Kindness
  8. Support
  9. Emotional safety

  11. Commitment
  12. Affection
  13. Love
  14. Respect
  15. Positive Influences

Friendship speaks its own language. Acting friendly is a social habit which is not the same as friendship. What language is being spoken in your friendships?
