Celebrate Letting Go Takes Love


The consciousness of loving and being loved brings a warmth and richness to life that nothing else can bring.”
~ Oscar Wilde ~

And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord: and thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment. And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.
~ Mark 12:29-31 ~

May God Remove

It only takes a simple attitude adjustment to build a little positivity, and little positivity is what makes great things possible.
~ Unknown Author ~

But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible. Then answered Peter and said unto him, Behold, we have forsaken all, and followed thee; what shall we have therefore?

And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That ye which have followed me, in the regeneration where the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve throne, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.

And every one that forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name’s sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life. But many that are first shall be last; and the last shall be first.
~ Matthew 19:26-30 ~

Hello friends. Sometimes, adjustment is wisdom, in action, because it is, what it is.

Especially when we breathe and practice the pause during challenges.

Abundant blessings and keep the faith.
