Acts of Kindness

Today, see if you can stretch your heart and expand your love so that it touches not only those to whom you can give it easily, but also those who need it so much- Daphine Rose Kingma
I have many, many matters of the heart when I look at my family and my love ones.  But lately my own personal matters of the heart have spread far beyond the ones to whom my love is easily bestowed.
When I take a look in the local and national newspapers, I see matters of my heart increasing.  World News Tonight is guaranteed to be a tearjerker, and my heart just wants to expand.  There are so many people in need of love, or some form of love. Maybe a smile, a hug, a kind note or words of encouragement is all it takes to lift the spirits of another. What I’m really enthralled by is how every one of these acts of kindness carries with it a good old fashion dose of “what goes around comes around”; how all of these things return to the original sender after completing some sort of cycle. Need love? Give love.  Need a hug? Give a hug. Need encouragement? Be encouraging. Get the picture?
 Today I will smile and spread cheer. I will be compassionate. I will love freely and openly, and I will love much.
 Today I prepare to sow my seeds; my seedlings are called Acts of Kindness.  I expect a bountiful harvest.

Order in My Life

(ôr'dər)  Law. A direction or command delivered by a court or other adjudicative body and entered into the record but not necessarily included in the final judgment or verdict.
I am at my best when order is present within and around me. I understand why order is important to my success. It is easy for me to become bewildered, dumb-founded, and disillusioned when my life is out of order.  This scene would be similar to an uprising in an uncompromising, unruly territory.
Giving in to placing order in my life is like escaping into a world of peace, love, and tranquility. FINAL JUDGMENT is in favor of the plaintiff, me. Just the ruling I need.
