Children Need Love

When you see a child who has never known love there is a vacant look in her eyes.

Give that child the knowledge that she is loved and you will see a change come over her.

Notice what love and acceptance will do for the look on her face.

Let her know that she will not be harmed if she accepts love.

Show her good things in life, puppies, kittens, and rainbows.

Run with her through the sprinklers and let her laugh out loud.

Teach her well and love her truly.

An Elderly Person

Make a visit to a rest home and take a look at some of the elderly people sitting alone and staring into a void where once there was love.

Touch that person's hand, say something kind and give them something pretty, like a flower. Sit and chat with them, ask them "How are you today? Can I do anything for you?"

Be aware of the change that will come over them. This may seem like a minor act of love, yet to that elderly person it may make a world of difference.

It can make them feel that they are still worthy of love. If you do that, visit that elderly person and show some kindness, then please take the time to visit again, at least once a week, to keep that light in their eyes and the feeling of love in their heart.

Give of yourself and your time and the rewards will change your life also.

My Little Marvin

Marvin Finds a Home

A lost, lonely, frightened and sick little dog was found and taken to the animal control center to be euthanized. He did not care, for he had nothing. Animal shelter rescued him from that fate, cleaned him up, fed him and gave him the medical attention he needed. Still, the little dog was timid and frightened.

My daughter saw him, begged me to adopt him and I did. The love we have given that precious little dog has made a huge difference in his life. His eyes are bright, his fur is shiny and soft, he is healthy, playful and content.

He knows he has a home, all the love he wants, all his needs are fulfilled and he is happy, very happy. Love made a tremendous difference in his life -- love saved his life. For the remainder of his life, he will have all he needs and plenty of love. And he brought a special kind of love into my heart and life.

Love a Plant

Give some loving attention to a neglected and weak plant and watch it grow into a healthy and lovely plant. Love comes in all forms for all things.

If a baby animal in the wild is neglected by its mother and the pack, it will die. It is the same for humans. If a human of any age does not know love, that person can die inside, in the heart, in the spirit - so can a plant.

Love Begets Love

All things that receive love returns love in many different ways.

When you Find That Special Love

When you find that special love in your life, the one that touches the deepest part of your soul, hang on to it. Love often does not come easy, it takes time to settle and grow. Love needs attention and work, just like when a seed is planted, it needs to be nurtured and cared for so it can grow.

That special person is the one that fills your heart with a love that is like no other. That is a love for life. It is that love which nothing can harm or end, not even death. True love which was meant to be can conquer all threats, it goes beyond all outside influences and beyond death.

I believe that there are twin souls who have spent many life times together. They always find each other because their love is eternal. I have a twin soul and I know the love is profound.

That Special Someone in Your Life
