Your Mission for Today

Dear God, what would you have me do today?

My beloved Child, your mission for today is to be a light. Be merciful and kind. Be hopeful, helpful, and filled with the light of my love!

“You are the light of the world—like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden. No one lights a lamp and then puts it under a basket. Instead, a lamp is placed on a stand, where it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father.” ~ Matthew 5:14-16

Knowledge Without Love

Love Matters

Knowledge without love (compassion, patience, kindness, integrity…) doesn’t usually go far in influencing others. Love matters! Above all, people need to know we care about them- defenses are lowered, walls come down, doors open, frowns turn to smiles and real communication begins.

Typically, we think that talking is the best way to influence others. We work hard to prove our points and push our agendas. But often it’s our ability to listen and sincerely care about what others are saying that has the greatest influence. Only then, by God’s grace we may have a platform to speak.

May God bless our relationships, and when times are tough, we can meditate on these beautiful words…

” If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing. Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

Love never fails!”

-1 Corinthians 13

Kindness is Like Snow

Kindness is like snow ...

“Kindness is like snow—it beautifies everything it covers.” —Kahlil Gibran

Kindness beautifies…

It turns frowns to smiles, uplifts the weary soul, and spreads rays of healing light everywhere it goes. Like snow, it also purifies, by covering the pain of our past with a glistening white blanket of love!

In a world so desperate for peace, acts of kindness have the power and potential to bridge every divide and heal every heart. It truly beautifies the world. Mark Twain wrote, “Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see.” God’s Word also tells us that practical acts of love are more than words . . .
