How Many Times

How many times have I called after my children, “Be good.”  In every day we must make good choices, do good deeds and be a good role model.  All the while knowing this act of will comes with little reward.  There Are obstacles and pain in being selfless.  The kind hearts often bear the brunt of pain and unjust.  And it is true – perfection is not an achievable perception – but there is an attainable goal in being that kind person through and through: The gift we give our self by being thus – dignity – and this = self-worth, self-esteem and self-respect.

I come to you with open arms in my quest to send sunshine; my highest attribute that can never be taken from me is…“I am a good person,” and I pray for many that will be enough.

  2. I have discovered that when I #reblogWednesday a blog, it produces a stirring of my gift and I am connecting. I am connecting the Fruit of the Spirit Model of Living with my Better Butterflies to your sense of Timing as I read this devotional. http://www.wyswoods.wordpress.com

  10. I have a habit of asking my toddler (and my dog), “Are you making good choices?” To me, it shifts the focus on being good to acting good—and there’s always an opportunity to make a good choice.

  11. Wow ! This answers so many questions people of all ages always keep asking. I love the way you are sending the sunshine to make the world enlightened. Keep up the good work, we all need to get inspired and believe that no matter what happens, we should be able to look in the mirror and be proud of our honesty and kindness 🙂
