We Reap What We Sow

February 25, 2009

Have you ever doubted that we reap what we sow?

We do! Beyond a shadow of a doubt. You plant the seed of a vegetable. You get the exact vegetable. Not another one. So be careful. You are planting seeds every moment of your existence, and those seeds will blossom. Sow bad seeds, get bad results. Sow good seeds, get good results. It makes perfect sense.

And be aware that you are planting seeds. It is important to monitor the seeds. You might ask yourself, “Why do I have to keep planting seeds?” The answer is that you can’t help yourself. Every thought is a seed that will eventually blossom. So, monitor your thoughts.

As I look back over disappointing times in my life, I can plainly see that I set it all up by the seeds I planted. Of course, I didn’t know it at the time. I wasn’t aware that every person has her or his garden and is not going to get apples if they grow oranges.

Ask any farmer. It’s his business to deal in reaping and sowing.

Thoughts are seeds. Take care when planting them.

Stop – In The Name of Calm!

February 23, 2009

“Stop worrying about the future,
the past, the unknown. Stop scurrying
from one draining activity to the next.
Stop long enough to close your eyes,
breathe deeply, and whisper a prayer.”

– Molly Ringwald, Heavenly Ways to Handle Stress

Our society fosters the belief that “busy is good”. The more items on our daily agenda and the more tasks on our plate, the more important we feel. From a stress perspective, more is not better. When we begin to dread our daily challenges and resent their toll on our psyches, it’s time to say “Stop. No more.”

Ponder:
When was the last time you said “yes” to a commitment though you wanted to say “no”?
What choices can you make today to say “no” to more unneeded stress?

Do I Love YOU?

February 17, 2009

Beyond the shadow of a doubt
As the mighty river flows
As the meadow gaily plays
With the wind on summer days
Bout as deep as deep can go
from the canyons to the sky
Like a mother as she cares
For the baby that she bears

Do I love you? Don’t you know by now?
Do I love you? Must I show you how?
Do I love you? Do I have to say?
Do I love you? Yes in every way!

About a  sacred as a hymn
and a Bible full of prayers
From a whisper, to a roar
Very much and even more
And I will say it with my eyes
And I’ll share it with each night
If in death the good Lord is kind
You’ll be the last thing on my mind

Do I love you? Don’t you know by now?
Do I love you? Must I show you how?
Do I love you? Must  I always say?
Do I love you? Yes in every way!

Do I love you? You should know by now.
Do I love you? Must I show you how?
Do I love you? I will always say..
Do I love you? Yes in every way!

Do I love you? You should know by now.
Do I love you?…(fades)

Yes I love YOU

I love YOU in every way & every day…
