A Sweet Inspiration: Love Letter Cookies!

Love Letter Cookies

From: http://www.etsy.com/listing/89970234/love-letter-cookies-1-dozen

I love this concept! What an awesome valentine! This cookie says: “If you were a wink. I’d be a nod. If you were a seed, well I’d be a pod. If you were the floor, I’d wanna be the rug. And if you were a kiss, I know I’d be a hug.”

Valentines day gifts don’t have to be expensive (although it’s okay if they are). What really matters is the thought! Just make it sweet!

Poem: Footprints in the Sand

 

Insert Footprints Poem Here

Footprints

One night a man had a dream. He dreamed he was walking along the beach with God.

Across the sky flashed scenes from his life. For each scene he noticed two sets of footprints in the sand. One set belonged to  him and one was God’s.

When the last scene of his life flashed before him, he looked back at the footprints in the sand.

He noticed that many times in his life there was only one set of footprints.

He also noticed that it happened at the very lowest and saddest times of his life.

This really bothered him and he questioned God about it.

“God, you said that once I decided to follow you, you’d walk with me all the way. But I noticed that during the most troublesome times in my life, there was only one set of footprints. I don’t understand why you would leave me when I needed you most.”

God replied:

“My precious child, I love you and I would never leave you. During those times, when you only say one set of footprints, was when I carried you.”

-Anonymous (but has also been attributed to different authors)

I love this poem. Sometimes we don’t see God in our lives and that is the times we need Him most. This simple poem tells us that if we let Him, God will carry us through those tough times so that we will once again see Him in our life and walk with Him side by side. The imagery is beautiful in here but the message is poignant. This poem will definitely get us through the tough times.

Poem: The Paradox of Our Time

THE PARADOX OF OUR TIMES

Is that we have taller buildings, but shorter tempers.

Wider freeways, but narrower viewpoints

We spend more, but we have less.

We have bigger houses, but smaller families

More conveniences, but less time.

We have more degrees, but less sense

More knowledge, but less judgement

More experts, but more problems

More medicines, but less wellness.

We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values.

We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often

We have learnt how to make a living, but not a life.

We have added years to life, but not life to years.

We’ve been all the way to the moon and back

But have trouble crossing the street to meet the new neighbour.

We have conquered outer space, but not inner space.

We’ve cleaned up the air, but polluted our soul.

We’ve split the atom, but not our prejudice.

We’ve higher incomes, but lower morals.

We’ve become long on quantity but short on quality.

These are the times of tall men, and short character;

Steep profits, and shallow relationships.

These are the times of world peace, but domestic warfare,

More leisure, but less fun; more kinds of food, but less nutrition.

These are the days of two incomes, but more divorces;

Of fancier houses, but broken homes.

It is a time when there is much in the show window, and nothing in the stockroom.

A time when technology can bring this letter to you,

And a time when you can choose,

Either to make a difference

…. or just hit, delete.
