Love Stay Away

Some people have been burn by not so real love that when real love comes along they turn it away.

The “weather” outside is . . . 🙂

Love Your Enemies

It take courage and denial of self to do so.

“But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you.” Matthew 5 vs 44

Can it always be done?

The “weather’ outside is . . . 🙂

Sacrifice For Love?

Have you ever seen The Lord of The Rings movie? At first, I didn’t like this movie (I still prefer the book) but I have grown to appreciate it. In the movie are two characters, Aragon and Arwen.

Arwen: Do you remember what I told you?

Aragon: You said you’d bind yourself to me, forsaking the immortal life of your people.

Arwen: And to that I hold. I would rather share one lifetime with you than face all the ages of this world alone.

She gave up living forever to be with the man she loves. How romantic or foolish? Which brings me to the reason I am writing this, is love about sacrifice?

That is from a book and fantasy; although, some have done it. Jesus did it for all humans. “Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again. No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. . . .” John 10 vs 17 – 18

What are you willing to give up for love?

My entry on 1o January, 2011.  Added the words for love to the title.

Life Matters. Oh yeah. 🙂

It is breaking

Are you breaking your own heart?

Or you have broken it already?

Life Matters. Oh yeah. 🙂

Not Good Enough

If you are not good enough for you, why would you be good enough for someone else?

I f you are trying to be good enough for someone in a relationship, you are in the wrong relationship.

Have a happy summer. 🙂

Love you. Take care. 🙂

Reality and Image

Is who you are different from who you portray to be? Is the real you different from what others see?

I am looking at Amanda Bynes and my mind went on the whole Disney child-actor thing. In the Mickey Mouse club you had to have an image, I guess, of purity. You acted in their movies and you had to maintain a certain way about you. Maybe today it is different, I do not know. Not blaming Disney.

On the flip side, if you acted, portrayed, or did the opposite of “purity” then you got an image of being fast, wild, and loose when in reality you were not.

So it is with certain people in the entertainment business around the world. You may be in box A when you really are living out of box B. Or vice versa.

And so it is with certain people not in the entertainment business but the so-called average, everyday people. You and me.

Who are we really? If you know, kudos.

If you are masked then . . .

“We wear the mask that grins and lies,

It hides our cheeks and shades our eyes–

This debt we pay to human guile; . . .” Paul Laurence Dunbar

Have a happy summer. 🙂

Love you. Take care. 🙂

Add Amanda Bynes to your prayer list.

 

But Can He/She Parent?

“Parenthood is a state which some miss by chance and others by design, and a vocation to which not all are called.” Jane Howard

So those of you who are considered good parents, do not forget to lend a hand to those who are not, especially if they are willing to accept advice and help. 🙂
