Our Children Are Gifts!

I remember to love as a child loves.
I see the world with delight and innocence.
I am willing to respond to all things with curiosity and wonder.
I no longer need to judge but see life as a call for loving.

Children Are Loving Reminders

Our children come to us as Love incarnate.
Children give us the opportunity to strengthen our love.
Children teach us how to forgive and love again.
Children show us what is real within us.

Are you allowing your children to show you how to Love?
Are you willing to see how easily they forgive and return to Love?
Do you feel guilty when you withhold your Love from them?
Are you waking up to be able to listen and respond only with Love?

We are here to learn to respect and see things differently.
We are here to learn responsibility and respond with Love.
We are here to learn to cooperate and be share and seek the best for all.
We are can learn to respect, respond and cooperate with everyone.

When we look deeply into the eyes of another, we see need for love in ourselves.
When we listen deeply into the heart of another, we feel the call for love.
When we look into our own eyes in the mirror’s reflection, we recognize our request for love.
When we listen within our own heart, we feel the deep longing for natural innocence and love.

Every one of us is here to love and be loved.
In a world where much is neglected and forgotten, we need loving reminders.
In a world where people may never have know true unconditional love, we need to remember!
In this time in our human history, we must look and listen deeply to know it is our Real work to Love.

Everything and everyone calls for love, recognition, reassurance and positive attention.
Let us attend to ourselves in the very most positive way.
Let us attend to one another in the very most healing way.
Let us remember to be truly helpful by responding daily to the call for Love.

It is our function to be like an innocent child who listens within and looks upon another with Love.
Let us realize we are all children upon this earth often feeling lost, neglected, hurt and afraid.
Let us recognize how much every one of us want to feel safe, care for, comforted and loved.
Let us be the ones who respond to everyone, everything and ourselves with a willingness to Love.

Life is for giving and forgiving!.
When we give with Love, we remember our holy and healing purpose.
When we live in Love, we know the Love around us and within us.
We are all here to learn to remember and respond with Love, no matter what.

Love is the way we live with Gratitude and Joy,
Betty Lue
