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.

I Corinthians 13:4-8

Love (in awe, can I ever live up to this one?)

A good friend can tell you what is the matter with you in a minute. He may not seem such a good friend after telling.

Here is onee I found, and have a picture of what God

is doing for me in recovery...

Yes.

Acceptance. Page 449 from the B and B.

Yes. He does not care what color does come up

when the canoe pops out finally free from the

bondage.

And, as always, thank you for your special insight.

(I do want a shiny crystal one, or blue) lol.


Love,

Sherry

But, as I am finding out, He might just certainly shake his

head, pat me on my thick head and laugh; and just go on

with what ever plans He already had for me for the color.

And, it will be more beautiful than anything I could ever

have imagined.

Just exactly what I would need for the rest of the journey.

Love,

Along the same (a)ligne: lol.

I've come to believe that each of us has a personal calling

that's as unique as a fingerprint - and that the best way to

succeed is to discover what you love and then find a way

to offer it to others in the form of service, working hard,

and also allowing the energy of the universe to lead you.

Food for thought:

Brother, you say there is but one way to worship and serve

the Great Spirit. If there is but one religion, why do you

white people differ so much about it? Why not all agreed,

as you can all read the Book?

There is always something left to love. And if you ain't

learned that, you ain't learned nothing. Have you cried for

that boy today? I don't mean for yourself and for the

family 'cause we lost the money. I mean for him; what

he's been through and what it done to him. Child, when do

you think is the time to love somebody the most; when

they done good and made things easy for everybody? Well

then, you ain't through learning -- because that ain't the

time at all. It's when he's at his lowest and can't believe in

hisself 'cause the world done whipped him so. When you

starts measuring somebody, measure him right child,

measure him right. Make sure you done taken into account

what hills and valleys he come through before he got to

wherever he is.

An Inspiration

People are often irresponsible, illogical and self-centered; forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives; be kind anyway.

If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies; succeed anyway.

If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you; be honest and frank anyway.

What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight; build anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous; be happy anyway.

The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow, do good anyway.

Give the world your best, and it may never be enough; give the world your best anyway.

You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and God, it was never between you and them anyway.

Borrowing from Rusty:

May we hold one another in the deep and tender places

with compassion, and may we grace one another by

sharing our own vulnerabilities, being ever mindful of the

divinity within that makes soulmates of us all.

Beautiful.


Love,



Sherry
