Valentine's Day 2012

CHILDREN LEARN WHAT THEY LIVE
Dorothy Law Nolte
If a child lives with criticism,
he learns to condemn.
If a child lives with hostility,
he learns to fight.
If a child lives with fear,
he learns to be apprehensive.
If a child lives with pity,
he learns to feel sorry for himself.
If a child lives with ridicule,
he learns to be shy.
If a child lives with jealousy,
he learns what envy is.
If a child lives with shame,
he learns to feel guilty.
If a child lives with encouragement,
he learns to be confident.
If a child lives with tolerance,
he learns to be patient.
If a child lives with praise,
he learns to be appreciative.
If a child lives with acceptance,
he learns to love.
If a child lives with approval,
he learns to like himself.
If a child lives with recognition,
he learns that it is good to have a goal.
If a child lives with sharing,
he learns about generosity.
If a child lives with honesty and fairness,
he learns what truth and justice are.
If a child lives with security,
he learns to have faith in himself and in those about him.
If a child lives with friendliness,
he learns that the world is a nice place in which to live.
If you live with serenity,
your child will live with peace of mind.
With what is your child living?

As each and everyone who has yet to celebrate this St. Valentine's Day and for those who have already celebrated and for those who happen upon this post at a much later date--I can only hope and pray that there is a way for Peace, Love and Understanding to triumph and save our world from the ever increasing Greed, Corruption, Hate and Violence that has taken over.  Lord, Help Us Jesus, We Need The Prince of Peace, Now More than ever. After all, Only The Lion of The Tribe of Judah can defeat the forces of Intolerance and Violence that go hand in hand with Greed . . . .

Today is Still St. Valentine's Day, I hope and pray that this mere blog in encouraging Peace, Love and Understanding in the preservation of our home planet, because while we are alive--this is OUR HOME.
