Some 'LOVEly' quotes....
Love is not a possession but a growth. The heart is a lamp with just oil enough to burn for an hour, and if there be no oil to put in again its light will go out. God's grace is the oil that fills the lamp of love.
Henry Ward Beecher
I think sometimes it feels impossible not to let that light go out. We can only get burdened, overwhelmed, pushed away and hurt so many times before it has a lasting effect. How hard it is to keep smiling, keep going, keep loving. But we do, we push onward and upward, we persevere and we let God and others fill our lamp. May your light shine with love this holiday season.
Faith , like light, should always be simple and unbending; while love, like warmth, should beam forth on every side, and bend to every necessity of our brethren.
Kind of a great picture don’t you think… love is a light. It shines out from us and lights the world around us. When we love, we live and when we love, we spread so much tenderness and affection and a sense of contentment that others can’t help but latch on to it. Have you ever noticed that when you are feeling good, emitting positive vibes and are truly content that most others around you feel the same? Have you ever noticed that when you are full of happiness and smiling, the world smiles back?
Let us always meet each other with smile, for the smile is the beginning of love.
Mother Teresa. . .
A smile really is the beginning of love. It starts there and spreads from head to toe and then emits forth, in a ray of light, in a powerful presence and it changes the world.
May you smile today, spread light everywhere you go and share your love with the world.
