“Love is the strongest force the world possesses and yet it is the humblest imaginable.” ~ Mahatma Gandhi
Good morning, dear friends. To me, Sunday seems to be the perfect day to speak of love. Our world needs so much love and it begins with each of us ~ doesn’t it? In preparing my Sunday posts, I want them to be of value. Words or an image we can carry with us throughout the week. That said, I hope today’s post about love will speak to you.
“We do not remember days, we remember moments.” ~Jennifer Nevin
“Science teaches to think but love teaches to smile.” ~
“Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same.” ~ Emily Brontë
“What the world needs now is love, sweet love it’s the only thing that there’s just too little of. What the world needs now is love, sweet love, No not just for some but for everyone.” ~ Songwriters: Burt F. Bacharach and Hal David
Ironically, I was preparing this post on Friday when I learned of the nightmare unfolding in the lovely city we called home for thirty-two years ~ Virginia Beach, Virginia. I spent the last four years of my career with the Virginia Beach City Public Schools in the Human Resources Division. During my years in Human Resources, I witnessed the ’employment termination’ of many disgruntled employees and often I thought, “I wonder what will become of them.” I also wondered, what caused them to do the things they did. I certainly did not know. But, they knew and possibly others knew also.
Doesn’t hate, violent behavior and vicious speech all spell ‘lack of love’? Clearly, I don’t have the answers. Oh, I wish I did. But I do know we must find solutions to the violence, and soon. Solutions which will offer hope to those who have lost their way.
As you go about your daily rounds this week, I ask you to think of those who lost their lives, their families, the survivors, my lovely city and the people who call it home. Because for them ~ “There are moments which mark your life. Moments, when you realize nothing will ever be the same and time is divided into two parts, before this and after this.” ~ unknown
Thanks for listening. Scatter love along your path.
know I wish you and yours a lovely day.
