In July I traveled to Synod YOUTH Workshop as a sponsor with teenagers from our church and felt the love and excitement in a way that they love to show it! The sunny heart on the bricks during my early morning walk (before teens awake!) confirmed the love that is all around us...may you see this on Love Thursday and each day.
my close friend Becky gave this heart to me many years ago although I cannot even recall the occasion anymore. I notice it "floats" around my house as many items tend to do, never quite landing in one spot. A counter... windowsill... the wall... even in a car for awhile. Each time I spy it though it makes me smile and reflect on the love between friends, all this emotion in one soft and colorful heart.
My hope that today on this Love Thursday you have a friend floating around in sight to make you smile.
as September arrived my thoughts turned to ways to encourage both teachers and parents at the beginning of each week. "MondayMoments" brings a positive quote to dwell on throughout the week. My hope is that you will visit and share words that speaks to you as well...enjoy each moment.
Don't judge each day by the harvest you reap, but by the seeds you plant. Robert Louis Stevenson
school has begun (well... tomorrow) check here each week for a quote to encourage you this year. Teachers, student or parents please feel free to add one!
"Creativity is so delicate a flower that praise tends to make it bloom, while discouragement often nips it in the bud. Any of us will put out more and better ideas if our efforts are appreciated." Alex F. Osborn
