You do not have to be good

Photo of Human Walking in the Woods during Daytime

You do not have to be good.
You do not have to walk on your knees
for a hundred miles through the desert, repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body
love what it loves.
Tell me about despair, yours, and I will tell you mine.
Meanwhile the world goes on.
Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain
are moving across the landscapes,
over the prairies and the deep trees,
the mountains and the rivers.
Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean blue air,
are heading home again.
Whoever you are, no matter how lonely,
the world offers itself to your imagination,
calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting –
over and over announcing your place
in the family of things.

Love is a verb

“My wife and I just don’t have the same feelings for each other we used to have.

I guess I just don’t love her anymore and she doesn’t love me.

What can i do?”
“The feeling isn’t there anymore?” I asked.
“That’s right,” he reaffirmed. “And we have three children we’re really concerned about. What do you suggest?”
“love her,” I replied.
“I told you, the feeling just isn’t there anymore.”
“Love her.”
“You don’t understand. the feeling of love just isn’t there.”
“Then love her. If the feeling isn’t there, that’s a good reason to love her.”
“But how do you love when you don’t love?” 

“My friend , love is a verb. Love – the feeling – is a fruit of love, the verb.

So love her.

Serve her.

Sacrifice.

Listen to her.

Empathize.

Appreciate.

Affirm her.

Are you willing to do that?”

To dare to dream in the midst of…

“To dare to dream in the midst of adversity,

in the midst of failure,

in the midst of complacency,

is to have hope.

That hope, that dream, is a gift from God.

It is His way of telling you that He has a plan for your life if you will listen and give Him a chance to bring it to pass.”

Attaining perfect beauty rules

h1.jpg

For attractive lips, speak words of kindness.
For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.
For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.
For beautiful hair, let a child run his fingers through it once a day.
For poise, walk with the knowledge you’ll never walk alone.

We leave you a tradition with a future.
The tender loving care of human beings will never become obsolete.
People even more than things have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed and redeemed and redeemed and redeemed.
Never throw out anybody.

Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you’ll find one at the end of your arm.
As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands: one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.

Your “good old days” are still ahead of you, may you have many of them.
