don’t stand in the rain to hide your tears,

instead,

face the wind

so your tears can be felt by those

who need to know it is ok to cry……

When hatred wins, we all lose.

Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate:

only love can do that.

― Martin Luther King Jr.

 

In this world Hate never yet dispelled hate. Only love dispels hate. This is the law,

Ancient and inexhaustible.

– Gautama Buddha

We love because God first loved us. Whoever says, “I love God,” but hates his brother is a
liar. The one who does not love his brother whom he has seen cannot love the God whom
he has not seen.
– Jesus
The best among you is the one who doesn’t harm others with his tongue and hands.
– Prophet Muhammad

 

Retaliation is counter-poison and poison breeds more poison. The nectar of Love alone

can destroy the poison of hate.

– Mahatma Gandhi

 

It is easy to hate and it is difficult to love. This is how the whole scheme of things works.

All good things are difficult to achieve; and bad things are very easy to get.

– Confucius

Kindness in words creates confidence. Kindness in thinking creates profoundness.
Kindness in giving creates love.
– Lao Tzu

 

I believe much trouble would be saved if we opened our hearts more.

– Chief Joseph
Racial prejudice, anti-Semitism, or hatred of anyone with different beliefs has no place in
the human mind or heart.
– Billy Graham

 

And where love ends, hate begins.

– Leo Tolstoy

A warm hello to you today, thank you for stopping by for a visit.

In this post I am asking a question for more personal reasons.  Due to my multiple chronic illnesses, I unfortunately spend a lot of time watching movies.  Even if I am not actually watching movies, I have them playing in the background as I go about my day as I use them as a distraction.

So my question is, What is your favorite holiday movie?  

Thank you for responding, I am hoping to discover one movie that I have not yet seen!

Thanks again for stopping by.  Please know that each one of you are in my thoughts and I have prayed that today is treating you well and bringing you smiles.

i don’t want you here, living inside my head

questioning every decision,

every move I make,

putting useless worry into my mind,

creating chaos that cannot be calmed with relaxation or meditation

you want to destroy me

make me feel as if I cannot get better,  heal,  or live a happy life

 

i want to be lifted up

encouraged,

experience true peace,

 

so find a new place to reside

 

i am kicking you out

for good

sitting quietly among the trees

allow the sun to brighten your spirit

soaking in the power of divine presence

the rays seeping deep into your soul

internalize this moment for cloudy days

adding it to your reserves

so when the sun disappears and the storms rage on

you can recreate in your mind the feeling of better days to come
