Get on Board

It’s amazing how much we miss out on, just because we don’t turn up!

How often have you been invited out, and then just said “No” for no real good reason?

What happens when you say “Yes”?

Love

I’ve been thinking about the importance of Love. Yep, you’ve guessed it, Valentine’s day is coming!

I’m single, so many people would hunk that this day has no meaning for me.

But that’s not the case.

I want to use this upcoming event to bless all those I love by telling them just that. I love them.

But I’m not going to wait. I want the people I know and care about to know right here right now.

I love you.

Whether you are someone from my past, someone whom I’m in contact with now, or someone I’ve yet to meet, the fact is that to some degree (admittedly stronger for some people) I love you.

I’m so glad that I was given a heart that can’t hate, and is predetermined to like others.

This is what I think of real love:

Love is never giving up.
Love is caring more for others than for yourself.
Love is to not want what you don’t have.
Love is to not show off, be proud or, forcing yourself on others,
Love isn’t always “me first,”
Love is to not fly off the handle,
Nor to keep remembering the bad things other people have done,
Love is to not be happy when someone is begging you for something,
Love is to love the truth
Put up with anything,
Trusts In your faith always,
Always look for the best,
Never look back, but keep going to the end.

Love never dies.

I want this to be my ideal, and to aim for this type of love in all I do.

I Love my Friends

I have a lot of friends. Yay!

I’ve got friends at work, at church, in England and also just from randomly meeting people in Japan.  I had no idea that I could meet and keep in contact with so many people.

I think I used to have a problem with trust. Because I found it hard to truly trust people it was hard to let them close.

When I started at Jesus Lifehouse everything changed. My world exploded. I suddenly knew more people than I knew how to keep track of (thank God for Facebook).

It took me a while to figure out what to do with them. The answer; Love them. And with love comes trust.

lf there’s anything that l know, it’s that love is infinite.

You can always make more when you need it.

 And just because you wanna give some to somebody else, doesn’t mean that you’ll take any away from me.

Twitches movie

It’s so simple. I’ll keep in contact with as many as I can and as often as I can, but the main thing is to think of them, to love them, and to hope for good things for them. (In my case I pray for them)

If I hadn’t opened up my heart and started trusting people again, I might still be able to count my friends only with my fingers (possibly my toes too)

Now I need a computer because I think the number of friends I have is possibly only calculable via algebra.

Are you making new friends? What’s stopping you?
