In the USA, February 14 is a day to remind ourselves to rekindle, celebrate and express love, so I thought you might like to contemplate an excerpt of a poem by Gerry Comstock from the Daily Word . . .

Justice is love holding the balance.
Mercy is love being gracious.
Faith is love believing.
Charity is love giving.
Patience is love waiting.
Endurance is love abiding.
Hope is love expecting.
Prayer is love communing.
Sympathy is love tenderly touching.
Comfort is love soothing.
Sympathy is love tenderly touching.
Comfort is love soothing.
Enthusiasm is love burning.
Work is love laboring.
Peace is love resting.
Understanding is love accepting.
Listening is love receiving.
Forgiving is love cleansing.
Teaching is love reaching.
Giving is love circulating.
Receiving is love blessing.

Feeling love and not expressing it is like wrapping a wonderful present but not giving it. Wherever you are on the planet, let your love be a circle of blessings as you give it and receive it.

 We all need to read this one over and over until it becomes part of who we are !

HOW TO STAY YOUNG

1.  Try everything twice.

On one woman’s tombstone she said she wanted this epitaph:

“Tried everything twice, loved it both times!”

2.  Keep only cheerful , positive friends.

The grouches pull you down.

(Keep this in mind if you are one of those grouches!)

3. Keep learning:

Learn more about the computer, crafts, gardening, whatever.

Never let the brain get idle.  ‘An idle mind is the devil’s workshop..’ 

And the devil’s name is Alzheimer’s!

4. Enjoy the simple things.

5. Laugh often, long and loud.

Laugh until you gasp for breath.

And if you have a friend who makes you laugh,

Spend lots and lots of time with HIM/HER.

 
6.. The tears happen:

Endure, grieve, and move on.

 The only person who is with us our entire life, is ourselves.

LIVE while you are alive..

7. Surround yourself with what you love:

Whether it’s family, pets, keepsakes, music, plants, hobbies, whatever.

Your home is your refuge.

8. Cherish your health:

If it is good, preserve it.

If it is unstable, improve it.

If it is beyond what you can improve, get help.

9. Don’t take guilt trips. 

 Take a trip to the mall, even to the next county, to a foreign country,

but NOT to where the guilt is.

10. Tell the people you love that you love them, at every opportunity.

I love you, my special friend.

 11. Forgive now those who made you cry. You might not get a second chance.

And if you don’t send this to at least 4 people – who cares?

But do share this with someone.

Remember! Lost time can never be found.

Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.
