Compliment Freely

Often we are thinking wonderful thoughts about a person but don't convey them.  Sometimes it happens when we are not with the person and sometimes he or she can be right in front of us. 

Let's act on those thoughts and feelings of admiration, appreciation and whole host of other beautiful sentiments by giving compliments.
* Say it *
* Express it with hugs * 
* Send a card *
* Write an e-mail *
 * Make a call *

Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.”
~Leo F. Buscalglia

A compliment is verbal sunshine
~Robert Orben

I can live for two months on a good compliment.
~Mark Twain

Try to catch yourself today. 
Compliment your family, friends, neighbors, co-workers and strangers. 
Compliment freely and generously.

Have a beautiful day!

Twice Blessed With Kindness

This week I was twice blessed with kindnesses by my dear sister Maria. 
First she surprised me with this lovely card.

We both love birds ♥ and flowers♥

She followed the Seven Flowers Pop Up Card tutorial if you want to give it a try.

And she also gave me a new Pandora Charm for my bracelet.

Happy Little Bird is her name.
And it was "Just Because".

Then today she surprised me again by spreading some joy about my blog
on her beautiful blog Calm Energy
Please stop over to visit Maria.

Today I am shining brighter having received her beautiful kindnesses.
Tomorrow I will surely pass it on.

The heart of the giver makes the gift dear and precious.
~ Martin Luther

Wishing you a beautiful day!

The Power of Prayer

Lately I've been adding to my prayer list more and more  - a lot of concerns for individuals, serious problems in many parts of the world and natural disasters striking what seems regularly. 
There are times when one can feel grossly inadequate to help.  However, I am reminded to never under estimate the power of prayer.  
It is a kindness that we can bestow upon others, and ourselves, everyday.  
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 
And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
~Philippians 4:6-7

Prayer is exhaling the spirit of man and inhaling the spirit of God. 
 ~Edwin Keith

Through prayer, others will be blessed and so will you. 
Let the blessings flow.

Wishing you a beautiful day!
