A beautiful thunderstorm.
Watching a seagull soar against the wind.
A quiet sunset.
I love you.
It seems as my heart is so taken by the smallest of things! Think of all the little moments taking up so much room. Listen… Winnie the Pooh talking to Piglet & explaining this concept as fact. And it is fact! Simply a fact! Open your heart & let the smallest of things in… recognize them… & keep them forever!
This quote made me think so much it is later in the evening than I expected! First & foremost, I try to live, love, listen & speak with patience, grace & humility. The jist is do I practice pretense, dependence, defense & / or offence?
- Am I pretentious?
- Am I dependent?
- Am I defensive?
- Am I offensive?
I have decided to take all of this in small bites of time instead of monthly, annually… I thought has just today been a positive day? Then I laughed remembering another little tidbit about a prayer giving thanks for God’s guidance ~ I remember it something like this but am putting in my thoughts about the quote…
“Thank you God for today & I was realistic, grounded, free thinking, accepting, open-minded, kind & gracious to others. Thank you God for being my support Thank you God for allowing me to live, love, listen & speak your truth. And now I have to get up out of this bed & start my day!”
So often this is the way I wish it was! I could start in reverse & go “without” all the issues that pile up during the day. Add up a day + a month + a year + a past of negative… Give God the Glory as he is as forgiving as we are repentant!
My goal is to LIVE in the moment, LOVE through a giving heart, LISTEN with my mouth shut & SPEAK softly!
