Good Morning Everyone! and to all our American Friends, Happy Independence Day!
We have a Japanese term we use in the PL Church, Musubi: Oneness, togetherness with others. one of my goals, my ambitions, something I strive for every day. Not just sometimes, I really believe and pray that I can attain this with every breath I take. I can’t live in tomorrow or next week, even next month. I live today, now, in this very moment. and I do my best to live each moment with Makoto,(utmost sincerity) I pray Shikiri: PL’s unique way of prayer, asking God’s blessing with a sincere promise to accomplish what I need/have to do Once a moment is lived it cannot be taken back and relived.
As a child I recall my Mother telling me that one should never say something hurtful or negative about someone else because once that word(s) was/were spoken they could not be taken back. I’ve never gotten that.
Good relationships begin by greetings and acts of respect and courtesy. Our action not only words, show how much we value others. Often actions speak louder than words. We have much to be thankful in our lives, lets share a smile today, say hello to someone you haven’t seen or heard from in awhile. Pass the feel good feeling around. It is free and it is yours to give.
This is an amazing picture in so many ways.. I don’t know the photographer, but the person who pinned it was Jef Palmer, this photograph was on Pinterest. Totally awesome.
