A Meaningful Life

Waste no time.
Say what you really mean.
Keep your promises.
Be grateful for every encounter.
Learn from every thing.
Bless the day.
Forgive all mistakes.
Listen with your heart.
Take time to Love.
Extend peace to everyone.
Be yourself.
Breathe fully and freely.
Let go with ease.
Touch with your eyes.
Smile with warmth.
Be happy.
Treasure what is eternal.
Love Your Whole Self.
Give your best.

Short and Sweet reminders today.
Seek and find ways to remember.
Lift your heart with song.
Create your own loving reminders.

This creates meaning. 
This gives us joy.
These experience increase awareness.
These fill our days with fulfillment.

Create altars of beauty.
Give yourself gifts of Goodness.
Savor the Holiness.
Honor All You Are.

Look around you and what do you see?
Look within your and what do you feel?
Where you see beauty, there you belong.
Where you feel harmony, there will you thrive.

You are the seeker and the creator of your own meaningful life.
You are the giver and the receiver of all you truly desire.
You are the One you seek.
This is the life you have chosen to live.

Loving with trust and freedom,
Betty Lue 

If I live in a house of spotless beauty with everything in its place, but have not love, I am a housekeeper--not a homemaker.  
If I have time for waxing, polishing, and decorative achievements, but have not love, my children learn cleanliness - not godliness.  
Love leaves the dust in search of a child's laugh. 
Love smiles at the tiny fingerprints on a newly cleaned window.  
Love wipes away the tears before it wipes up the spilled milk. 
Love picks up the child before it picks up the toys.  
Love is present through the trials. 
Love reprimands, reproves, and is responsive. 
Love crawls with the baby, walks with the toddler, runs with the child, then stands aside to let the youth walk into adulthood.  
Love is the key that opens salvation's message to a child's heart.  
Before I became a mother I took glory in my house of perfection. 
Now I glory in God's perfection of my child.
As a mother, there is much I must teach my child, but the greatest of all is love.
