The Making of a Garden

Your mind is a garden. Your thoughts are the seeds.

💘The Power Of Love💘

”Three things will last forever: Faith, Hope, Love…and the greatest of these is Love” 1 Corinthians 13:13 Hello, dear friends… Hope all is well with you. Everything is going great here…tickety-boo💘 I recently returned from a trip to Southern California During moments of unpacking… coupled with hours of 💤 napping… along with what I think I am best at doing…(nesting) A lovely realization came over me… A heightened awareness… that we have all been created for greater things… to love…and to be loved… A Love without conditions…or expectations… bringing peace… helping each other… on our journey. Wishing you… 💕 Love 💕
