To go to the ends of the world

to help a stranger

To give someone incredible kindness

they will never forget

To treat animals and all of nature

with respect and compassion

These are the things that give life true purpose.

To value your special uniqueness

as a beautiful child of God

To elevate your mind

with the higher value of integrity

To upgrade your living environment

planting seeds to enrich the soul

To give a child caring devotion

so they feel they are loved

To rise above your circumstances

with faith in the power of God

And with the purity of healing love

in your heart

your life will know no boundaries.

      Think we're on the same wavelength, and I'm glad somebody understands. I'm so tired of well-meaning people trying to tell me what I've done or am doing is right or wrong because, "what if....." or "you need....." (so do others!) Thank goodness for my son who thinks this way too. Great hub.

      To have a deep hunger for God

      and love Him as much as we can

      To delight ourselves

      in the study of His Word

      To put Jesus first in our lives

      and worship God with praise and joy

      To humble ourselves before His throne

      and give to God the highest honour,

      respect and glory

      Quite though provoking

      I believe, with FAITH in the power of God you can achieve your life purpose. You are right! "And with the purity of healing love in your heart your life will know no boundaries."

      Thank You.
