“I am not sure exactly what heaven will be like,
but I know that when we die and it comes time for God to judge us,
He will not ask,
‘How many good things have you done in your life?’
rather He will ask,
‘How much love did you put into what you did?”
~ Mother Teresa
I found this quote this morning and thought it was a good reminder for none of us know our exact ‘expiration date’ on this planet unless one chooses to expire early which I hope you will not. ♥
I’ve always thought of kindness and good deeds to be highly regarded, but as I’ve grown older, I find that putting love into everything we do is just as, or perhaps even more important. It was refreshing to find Mother Teresa’s quote today to confirm that someone else thinks the same as I do. Isn’t that always the way? We find comfort in connecting with others?
It’s the simple things my friends. Love, kindness, gratitude, forgiveness, peace. Being the best we can be in all aspects of our lives. Living spherically, listening to others with an open heart to all they say and omit. Compassionately communicating to help, not harm. Stepping back when it does not serve you or others to jump into the fray in whatever form. Stepping up with courageous kindness when it does serve you and others. Not being afraid to speak the truth in a kind way. To listen, to be heard, to connect. To add love in all you do. To be a role model and shine your heartlight. To enjoy The Presents of Presence.
Today, try to infuse love into whatever you are doing. Slow down and be present, be the present of love. Share a smile, a hug and a “I love you” with someone you cherish. Really feel the loving connection and be grateful. Use your beaming heartlight for good.
