Love, a beautiful treasure

The good and the bad

Well, I watched a short yet beautiful video a friend sent to me the other evening. And it was truly something out of the ordinary (see it below.) Uplifting and simple and thought provoking. It was acts of kindness set to touching music. It brought happy tears to my eyes. It stimulated my mind and excited my spirit against the run of the mill news of the day.

Something that made me think there might still be hope left in this world.

Our hope lies in the pages of the Bible. A new world is in the making, we can't see it physically, but we can spiritually, it's our Father's plans, hopes and dreams. That world is bright and real and it's on its way. But what about the here and now? How about everything our once innocent eyes have seen and all our once innocent ears have heard - it's everywhere and so frequent we've gotten a bit used to it entering our minds like dirty smoke and smog as we watch TV or read the news and gets lodged somewhere in our minds. We've managed to get past our first gut reactions and our minds have grown accustomed to the fact that it's out there, it's real, it's ugly...but it's not accepted. Or is it?

Random acts of kindness

What are we? Just people. Or maybe there is something special about humankind. Why do we know what we know? Or enjoy what we enjoy in life that is truly good...fine arts, clothing, music, culture, friends and family. Cute cuddly little animal friends. And time together eating, dancing, laughing, playing.

Why DO we dislike each other? Why can't we love everyone? We're all different. And that's part of the answer. But still, we're all the same. Our hearts beat the same rich red blood.

Respect and simplicity, being humble instead of proud. Is it that hard to give a little..just a little would be a nice start. Showing someone else we care instead of worrying about how we look to others. Letting your friend have his way instead of you having yours. It can be done. I'm not saying it's easy, I'm just saying it can be done. But it takes work. And that's also part of the answer. It's easier to not work or try or care or help or smile or give just a little. It may be easier, but it's not better. And easier won't change the world. It takes work. Courage. Kindness. Love. And love ain't easy. True love takes work.


It takes making right choices every day. Good choices you can be happy with and proud of at the end of the day. And at the end of your life.

It can be done. It is worth it. It brings happiness. Friends. Good times. Peace of mind. Accomplishment. Success. Unity. Satisfaction. A reason for living!

And it starts...

...with choices that turn into decisions that turn into kindness that turn into acts of giving that turn into...

Yes, it is truly that simple ... love is the answer and simple acts of kindness can make all the difference in another one's life if we just do as He tells us to do.

Dear Bluebird : Don't be troubled dear heart. Take all the sweet, and kind love in your heart, and share it with everyone that will love you, delight in the very presence of you. There are great and wonderful souls as you know that cherish everything about you, and understand wholeheartedly the kindness you want our world to have. I experienced the presence of God once in a tramatic moment. God is great peace without any pain or suffering . There is enough love , in the people we can love , without the ones who cannot show love.

For those who are unwilling to follow God, or show love , or kindness, don't be troubled over them. All you can do is to say a prayrer for them, wish them well in your heart, and leave them for God to change them, if that is what God wants.

The good in this world needs you, and deserves you more than anyone that could never appreciate the beauty of you. The cold, the brutal, the calous, the mean, the wicked. They either catch up, or remain behind, and follow their different power, one that is not so loving, or so kind. The choice is theirs.

Always remember that even the sweetest little dog is capable of taking a piece of bread from your hand that you offer in kindness, and will appreciate your gift by kissing your hand. Nearly all humans know right from wrong. Everyone that is human knows that he, or she can either like you, or not like you, love you, or not love you. It's their choice, and their road to decide what they wish to choose. Your kindness deserves kindness , and thats the way it should be, and if it is not available in one place, then it will be in another. God Bless You Dear Heart.

Dear Sky9106,

Thanks for your support and kindness.

We praise God well when we get down our knees and ask for help to love, we can't do it on our own, God is the answer. Let's humble ourselves to Him.

Yes, let's give thanks and praises to the Most High God...our Father who wants His children to ask for help and to look to Him.

Yes, you're so right. God is love and Jesus told us to love our neighbour. If only we all did that the world would be such a better place.

All we need is love and that is the truth. It is sad to see all the pain and intolerance in our world. I love the concept of acts of kindness or paying it forward. Good stuff.
