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 . . . 🙂

Meow, Not Roar

Sometimes courage does not come with a roar.

“Integrity without knowledge is weak and useless, and knowledge without integrity is dangerous and dreadful.” from Rasselas, ch 41 by Samuel Johnson 🙂

What cape?

Superman has one. Batman too. Others might not, but they still have super powers where they either go around doing good or doing bad.

For us in the real world, there is no such thing as a superhero cape, just the courage to do the right thing when it is call for no matter what the consequence(s) might be. It is not putting fear aside, nor doubt, nor quieting the voices around you telling you not to go through with it. It is not having a lot of muscles or brain power or the so-called “right connections”; all these things exist, but you rise above them, bypassing them. Why?

Because to do the right thing comes from within.

To everyone a lovely weekend. 🙂

Take the backseat

I love watching old movies, and last month I watched a movie with Bob Hope called My Favorite Burnette. He played a photographer wanting to be a detective, and when the chance came to “be” one, he took it, carrying his fear along with him.

But sometimes that is just it, courage does not mean the absence of fear, it means that fear takes a backseat in what we know needs to be done.

And about that movie, it was a laugh riot. 🙂

for the month of february, PLEASE GIVE A DIME. Or ten cents, or an equivalent. For each day, set this amount aside for the whole month, 28 days, and at the end of the month, donate it to a children’s charity. A small big difference. Pass the word along if you please. 🙂
