God wants me to know...that love is effortless

True giving happens when you are overflowing from the inside, and cannot help but share. When there is so much love within you that it has to flow to others or you would burst open. There is no thinking involved, no willpower in such sharing. It just flows out. If you have to force yourself to be kind, to love, to feel compassion, you've missed the first step of filling in your own Self with these emotions.

This is so true! When I have to force myself to give of myself, it's time to take out the mirror and do some analyzing.

  5. Hi, I'm following you from the MBC!

    As moms, I think we are expected to give a lot, so I think when you are feeling taxed, you need to take a moment for yourself. You can only take care of others well if you take care of yourself well--that's advice I got as a new mom and I think it's true. I am so much a better mom, wife, volunteer, etc., when it does come from inside. Thanks for the words of wisdom.

  6. Im from MBC as well. I really enjoyed this post!
    I think everyone has to stop...no matter how busy we are...and remember that life really has no meaning if we do not reach out and share ourselves with others.
    Its so important in this world we live in....thanks for the reminder!
