World Peace


It is not so large … this World of mine.
Some would deem insignificant in Space and Time.
But it is the World, that I touch …
And is all of the World … to me … as such.

Mine alone is this chance to express,
All that is Kindness, and The Best.
Open, only to me, is this moment to show,
Expressions of Love and Compassion I know.

In this instant of contact, in our shopping …
Or, perhaps on the street, we pass.
My chance to say “I love you”
Only briefly, will last.

So I catch your eye, give you my smile …
Say “Forgive my intrusion, please.”
“I am aware and have noticed a way …
To appreciate You … and give My World … Peace.”

this is a marvelous gift to give the world, however large or small your personal "world" is. thank you for consciously sowing peace rather than being one of the many who unthinkingly sows discord.

It does seem that each word, action, and, at an even more rudimentary level, each thought allowed ... is simply a matter of exercised Choice. I have ... we all have ... the ever-present option to make each Moment, Circumstance, and Happening, better ... or bitter. "The better butter can make the bitter batter better." [smile]

I do delight in your choices, Darling Lime, to opt in favour of gentleness over harshness ... kindness over insensitivity ... and harmony over discord. You bring Peace into my World.

Lovingly ...

My same thoughts...everyday...and so I comment with a smile and hope that
it will add to your storehouse...of smiles to give away. Love and Light, Laura

Having dwelt with your Spirit's reflections ... embraced your blog's lovely Presence ... and gratefully expressed my appreciation to Life for your generosity and kindness in providing a Place of Welcome in your World ... I thank You, Precious Laura, for dancing Life's Dance of Love with me. You have just made my World a more pleasurable Place/ [loving smile]

There is (rarely) a sweet Song that enchants and enthralls the Soul. This Song is sung with each visitation of your gently caressing Spirit, Dear, Dear Calli. The Magic that is You always stills me in a moment of blissful wonder. And I am, yet again, so glad that Life brought our pathways to each other.

Yes ... I am unabashedly and unashamedly smitten! [smile]

lovingly ...

Beautiful, JM. And thank you for that glorious dose of love you left on the doorstep of Willow Manor today. Peace and love to you, as well, dear friend. Even though we've not met, I feel I've known you for the longest time.

"Kinship" defies adequate definition, My Darling Willow. ... but is a rare Gem of life that I have learned to recognize ... polish ... and enjoy.

Our lovely Kinship is one of particular satisfaction and appreciation to me. The beautiful facets of Love, Respect, Admiration, and Appreciation reflect beauties that I know will bring unending pleasure as time matures our Kinship.

I do love You ...

Just wanted to stop and say hello and to say I need some of your healing magic not for me but for a dear friend. Any and all prayers are needed as the outcome of this is not looking good.

Sorry I've been slacking...been busy! I hope all is well with you.

John-Michael said...

Please, Precious Jillie ... there is no such thing as "slacking" between us ... EVER! Ours is a kinship of Understanding and Acceptance that has neither requirement for, nor thought of anything but each others' Comfort and Joy. And all that I am and have is yours, in your Heart's focus. For I know (without qualification) that the burdens of your Heart merit whatever I can manage to provide. So ... you have those Prayers ... and my most caring Thoughts and Considerations. I thank you for the compliment of allowing me to participate in this Occasion.

Lovingly Yours ...

How many times can I say that I gain something wonderful whenever I come here, and still have the words carry weight? I know all words written here carry weight with you, John-Michael, but just repeating those same ones, for me, feels less-than-right. Anyway, I do appreciate your time and effort to convey your soul to us. I truly do. God bless.

John-Michael said...

I'll share a little secret with You, my Darlin' SulDog Friend. I have been hoping to see You here all day. Yep!! Your very Presence carries more "weight" with me ... in all of the most meaningful and significant ways ... than words could ever encapsulate. Knowing that You and I have shared one of our precious Connections means a great deal to my inner well-Being. Surely does!

So, I say "thank You Jim!" For, you see, you have touched and made special (once again) my day. [smile]

I love You ...
