A Shining Light

The gifts that we are given at birth. The responsibility to pass them along to the people of the world. We need to show grace, kindness and love.

Our faith will guide us

We all given God's love even before birth.
The day we are born we take on responsibility.
The pleasures of the Universe are taught to us from an early age.
We need to have faith that we were placed here for a reason.
Our life should not be lived for our own pleasure.
It should be lived to learn and help those around us.
We need to be grateful, helpful and willing to lend a hand.
If someone is down we need to help them up.
To ridicule and look down upon is not how we are supposed to react.
We must stop and think of their dilemma and the best path to take.
There must be compassion shown from an early age.
Children know right from wrong while still being held in their mother's arms.
We must always pick the path of what is right even if it's not an easy path.

Kindness

Remember to be like a beacon of light in a stormy sea.
Reaching out to comfort the needy in a caring way.
Be positive, pointing to the path of light as you walk along.
Make a difference by helping in times of special need.
Our faith and gratitude will keep us strong during trying times.
Our hands will lift the sick, our tonques will guide our every word.
We will be standing by to help, when there is a cry for need.
We will be guided on the path with a guiding hand.
It will not be easy I have no doubt, where there's faith we shall be.
Our lights will be shining in the darkest days
They will not be dimmed by nay sayers with doom and gloom.
We will not be shaken in any way, we have a job we were born to do.
We will complete it, as it has been told.

Gratitude and Blessings.

We must open our hearts with gratitude for all that is meant to be.
Our blessings are given freely from the day we are born.
Our lives are meant to be shared with kindness and love.
As we walk along our way, we must take a moment to enjoy the view.
Remember to open your eyes to the sun and the wind.
The leaves blowing offer a gentle breeze.
See the dense forest and the beautiful blue sky.
The white clouds forming pictures high up above.
Take comfort from the gifts that surround us each day.
We shall gain strength knowing the good in the world.
It will carry us through our times of need.
Always look for the good, no matter how bad it gets.
Find an oasis amidst the darkness, search for the light and you shall see.

You have touched our hearts and that shows goodness prevails, thanks Nancy for a wonderful spread of wisdom. If we do what is right, and that none has to teach us, we should be fine. Then being grateful. When I feel in low spirits I look and see around me even our fellow travelers, meaning other species, are up and about without complaining. Every day is a gift and let us spread our cheer - we are after all the co-creators of this wonderful place - siva
