Family First


Treasures In The Garden

 What we need…….. is each other. 

 That is our most precious gift.

The greatest treasure in one’s life

is one’s family.

We may not be the perfect family,

but we love each other

with all our heart          

Timeless Reminder

Family is where we love, learn, share, are significant, gain character, are always a success, be important, and are always very special.

 

I choose to live with joy in my heart.

My word for today is “FAMILY!”

Counting blessings

Treasures In The Garden

What blessings we’ve already got…….money can’t buy.

STOP………. looking for what

we haven’t got in our life.

And start a gratitude

attitude

for what we do have…….

…….love, family, good health, happiness….

The blessings are countless….

Write them down.

Add to them everyday.

 The “wants” will be small by comparison.

My word for today is “BLESSINGS”!

I will live in JOY!

 

 

A Special Day


Treasures In The Garden

 

Every day is a special occasion…….

We should not save anything for a special occasion:

Everyday we wake up is a special occasion.

There are things that we have not yet seen.

There are things we have seen and done

and not yet realized they were special.

Savour, not endure. Try to recognize the special moments and cherish them.

We must not take tomorrow for granted ….

see old friends we haven’t seen in ages

Call family,

 Apologize, mend fences,

Write that special letter, 

Tell our family and partner that we LOVE them

.add laughter and lustre to our lives

when we open our eyes and realize “today is SPECIAL!”

Everyday, every hour, every minute, every second is a gift!

Anne Wells (New York Times)

That’s what makes every day so SPECIAL!

……. because we are ALIVE!

 

My word for today is “SPECIAL!”

Happy Mother’s day


Treasures In The Garden

 

We would like to wish all Mother’s a very Happy Mother’s Day. And may all Mother’s who have passed away enjoy eternal HAPPINESS.

A prayer we said for all Mothers around the world, in church this morning:

 

God of LOVE

listen to this prayer.

 God of holy people, of Sarah, Ruth and Rebekha

  Holy Mary, Mother of Jesus,

bend down your ear to this request

and bless women of our families.

Bless them with strength of Spirit,

 they who have taught our children

how to stand and how to walk.

 Bless them with the melody of your LOVE,

 they who have shared how to speak,

how to sing and how to pray to You.

Bless them with a place at your eternal dinner table,

they who have fed and nurtured the lives 

that were helpless, but embraced in their LOVE.

 Bless the women of our families today,

now , in this lifetime, with good things, with health.

Bless them with joy, LOVE, laughter, and pride in our children

and surround them with many good friends.

 May the women who cared for young life

be carried one day to Your Divine embrace:

there for all eternity,

to rejoice with family and friends.

 This blessing and all graces, we pray,

 descend upon the women of our families. Amen.  

My word for today is “MOTHERING!”

I remember my Mother’s prayers and they have always followed me. They have clung to me all my life. Abraham LIncoln.

Growing In Wisdom


 

 

Treasures In The Garden

 

Good things come to those…….

 

As we get older we find out

that true happiness is NOT in

how much money we make

or how much education we have achieved,

how big our house is,

 how fancy our car.

 It’s finding PEACE, JOY, CALMNESS

in our life – that will be the most important things to us.

 Our FAMILY is what matters

 LOVE is what matters.

 Things of QUALITY–  not QUANTITY!

Soul Writings

 

……. who wait and grow in the ageing process slowly, wisely and graciously!

 

My word for today is “WISDOM!” 

Hugging Time


 

 

Treasures In The Garden

 

 

I miss my kids…….

 

There are moments in life

when you can miss some one

 so very much 

 that you just want to

pick them from your dreams

 and hug them for real.

 

…….I miss having family.

 

                               My word for today is “Hugs!”
