In honor of the upcoming Valentines Day holiday, I am planning to devote the next few blog posts to a subject I feel passionately about: LOVE. And in hopes of helping you stay connected to those you love, next week Ill be posting downloadable pdfs of love-themed pages from my Zenspirations® Color, Create, Pattern & Play books for you to embellish, color and give to someone special. If there is enough interest I will also post a couple card designs. So if youd like to download free Zenspirations cards, please leave a comment to let me know whether you want to color it yourself or youd prefer to have one Ive already colored. Also let me know what kind of card you want me to post. For example, if there are a lot of people who want a “For a Wonderful Mom on Valentines Day” card, I can post that; if there are more votes for a card which says “For a Special Friend on Valentines Day” card, Ill post a design with that message… so even if youve never left a comment before, please take a few minutes to let me know if you’d like a card, and what youd like it to say.
Speaking of comments, I dont know if Ive told you how much I enjoy reading what you write. Quwatha, Sue, Elaine, Theresa, Debra, Sandy, Sharon, Sarah, Donna, Kara, Kathleen, Linda, Clover, Alyce, Janet, Kim, Laura, Jackie, Howard, Maria, beej, Jane, Barbara, Fran, MYT CR8TiV, Elisa, Wendy, Mary, Terri, Anne, Susan, Sharyn, Grace Ann, and all of the other ‘regulars – it means a lot to me that you take time to share your thoughts. THANK YOU! I often want to write back, and have been feeling frustrated that that the blog platform Im using doesnt allow me to respond to your comments. So Im embarking on a new adventure—Im going to be reworking my website and blog to facilitate interactive communication. Id welcome suggestions on platforms you like which allow for reciprocal conversation.
If you enjoy reading the blog, but havent subscribed yet, please take a moment to Subscribe to the Zenspirations® blog; Id like to be able to stay in touch no matter where I wind up hosting the website.
Everybody wants to be loved… love is essential to our souls, just as food is to our bodies. To me, love is more than a feeling; it’s a way of embracing the world and everyone in it. Love is a thousand little things which flow together to create an atmosphere in which kindness and hope can flourish. There are many kinds of love, but they all have one thing in common– love grows connections between hearts. When you look through the eyes of love, you realize that each person you meet has unlimited potential. You’ll see promise instead of imperfection, and beauty instead of bitterness. Let love fill your heart and there won’t be room for fear or negativity. Look with love, and you’ll see past someone’s character flaws to the spark of holiness inside their soul.
The love you share radiates outward… like ripples made by dropping a small stone into a pond. Love flows and grows… touching lives and healing hearts. The more love you give, the better you feel. Let love envelop you… Let love connect and consecrate you… Let love fill you and flow through you… Let love make you whole.
