Bonds Of Love
How glorious this Earth would be if only everyone followed their example. Wars would disappear overnight. Not a single child would go unfed. Joyous laughter would replace angry shouts. Hitting would turn into hugging. Smiles would sail from face to face, heart to heart, and soul to soul. Everyone would feel the love of God flowing through their hearts and through the hearts of their neighbors. And everywhere you would look you would see the shining eyes of another Child of God and member of your family.
Donít be afraid then to build the bonds of love. Donít be afraid to share yourself with others. You may even find yourself "enlarging your family" as you invite your fellow Children of God into your heart, soul, and life. After all, we were meant to love. We were meant to share joy. We were meant to give kindness to everyone we meet. Mother Teresa of Calcutta said: "Let noone ever come to you without leaving better and happier. Be the living expression of Godís kindness: kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile." That is how my wonderful neighbor and her "adopted" family live and that is how I hope to live as well. May the same be true for you.
