thought for today...



Surrendering to the Call of Showing Gentleness

There are times in life when gentleness can accomplish that which force and fierceness cannot.
 and to give answers about the Hope I have with gentleness and respect.  
There is a gentle side to me and I am being asked to show it.  To make it evident. 
 I believe that showing gentleness is not the same as showing weakness. 
 It means showing a Christlike consideration for others.  That is something I can do.

May gentleness permeate my being during this year of Surrender and may it be evident to all.

  9. So very lovely, Dear, thank you. When I worked at Wal-Mart, I always tried to be gentle and loving to the crying children. They usually stopped crying. Thank you, Lord.

  10. Fritz Perls said, "Don't push the river. It flows by itself." As a person who used to be a big pusher, I have learned the wisdom of a gentle touch. Now when I can just remember that....!

  11. You know that is so true, and I have done it many times. You are the winner when you don't get angry. And later you feel so much better for not loosing it. Happy New eYear and God Bless.
