Daisy, I love all that you contribute here. Thank you for you inspiration.

I love this today. How easy it is to do some little thing that will make someone smile today. My husband and I are going for fresh apples, the season has arrived, and we will get enough to share with some of our neighbours. So easy and so appreciated by them, both the apples and the thoughtfulness.

The thing is, I learned this from them. When I was sick, when Bubba was sick, flowers and cards and ginger cookies showed up at my door and made my heart smile.

Let's all do one little thing today, to make the world a better place.

Thank you Ann, what a lovely thing to say and I love your suggestion for us all to do one little thing today to make the world a better place, I would go one further and say let us all do one little thing every day to make the world a better place. I love reading all your prayers and posts too, especially the special ones selected from your treasures. I get a feeling of peace within myself each time I visit this thread, it's a good way to start and end my day. All my love. Mxxxx

Prayer of Thanks for people

God of Love,
I thank You for the people in my life who are easy to love.
I thank You for my family and friends who understand my actions,
who support me in my decisions,
and whose presence can lift the burden of a thorny day.

Help me with those who are difficult to love.
When they come at me with criticism and wild expectations,
when they ignore me or try to bend me to their will,
let me recognise their flaws and their dangers.
But then let me remember your attitude toward them,
and lead me to see them in the light of Your love.

Amen
________

Random acts of kindness...let's do it. I try, but I can try harder.
Loving all the helpful inspiration - it means so much to me.

Today,
I want to pray
that tomorrow
I can share
with as many people
as possible,
as many bits
as possible
of that tremendously
amazing love
and that tremendously
amazing kindness
that was placed
in each of our hearts
the moment we were born.

Somehow I believe
that every time we share
one of these little bits,
something magical happens:
this small bit makes
a small change in this big world
a small change that may live on
for more than hundred years
beyond our own death
and who knows, well
into eternity...

many bits to share - hans van rostenberghe

Religions are different roads converging upon the same point.

What does it matter that we take different roads
so long as we reach the same goal.

I invite you to enter for a moment
into Sacred Time and Space,
into a way of seeing that is broad and spacious.
See this Day, from the time you arose this morning
until you sleep this evening, as one Ceremony,
divided into small and familiar rituals,
your Heart as the Altar.
You, part of the Cycles of Light and Darkness.

Now begin to see your Life,
from the moment of your Conception
until the time of your Death
as one long, continuous Ceremony,
filled with many rituals,
some familiar, some unknown and challenging.
Your Home and all Your Relations, the Altar.
You, part of many Seasons and Cycles.

Now see this Ceremony of your Life
as part of a much larger Ceremony that extends
Seven Generations into the Past and Seven into the Future,
made up of many Births and Deaths.
This beautiful spinning Earth the Altar.
You, part of the great Ebb and Flow.

Now, if You will, imagine this larger Ceremony
to be but one part of a Ceremony so grand,
so magnificent as to be hardly comprehensible,
a great, vast Ceremonial Circle, rich and vibrant
with millions upon millions of swirling
Circles of Dancing Light,
and You, one of those Dancing Circles,
a Dancer on the Altar that is the Universe,
where Time is Eternal.

~May You Dance In Beauty.
