Today I’m going to have love thoughts and when tomorrow becomes today I’m going to have love thoughts

For me, getting started in the morning is always the scariest time. Seems that all my “doubt thoughts” are at work in full force. I don’t know why it’s so hard sometimes, to not just think but to actually feel that a good day is coming. I know that opening the ‘Love door’ is more powerful than opening the ‘sad door’.  I know this to be true because, if the only thing I had to look forward to upon awakening every morning is to ‘fear thoughts’, I wouldn’t be here today. Now, I’m not talking about your everyday kind of fear A.K.A. terror. That save your ass kind of terror so you don’t get run over terror. I’m talking about, the kind of fear that makes everything seem impossible or dreary or depressing. I think we as a race of people would have all committed suicide a long time ago if that was the best we all had to look forward to. But because of love that is everywhere at all times for us to seek, knowing that if a person acknowledges love and all that is necessary is to say to yourself. “I can and I will feel alive.” But there is a hard part and that is to look inside yourself for that tiny thread of love. It means you’re also going to have to have a little faith that “the times they will get better”. Hey, this ain’t easy and probably sometime you’ll need to use a Herculean effort to stay focused on that little thread of love while keeping your foot on failure. But in the end it’s going to be worthwhile for love will grow and grow. I just went outside to let my dogs out of their kennels. Bob stopped and looked up at me and said “give me a scratch behind my ear and you will feel better, a tiny bit better”, then he added “it’s a start.” So just remember that we all wouldn’t be here if there were only dark clouds of sadness. So even if you think you’re going crazy, don’t believe it. Just look at something pretty, anything to get you looking for love. I’m writing this spontaneously and the phone just rang. “What do you need Katy?”, “Juan just arrived to say that our big 14,000 gallon water tank is empty what shall we do?” These are all Love questions that stomp on loneliness and hopelessness. I’m now too busy helping and when I get done helping love doesn’t just leave when I stop to take a breather.  Love says “that was good”, so just remember that every time it feels like whatever you’re doing, or feeling,  or thinking is good, that’s love. Remember the old saying “if it looks like a duck, if it quacks like a duck, it must be a duck.”
Well I’ve just reread what I’ve had to say about Love, on my trusty iPad. By the way, it has a real nice feature. It automatically spells most of my words, so what I have to say is not just gibberish. By gollies, the preceding words make sense to me and have raised my spirits to feeling pretty darn good. And I feel like I’ve earned my keep. So guess I’ll treat myself to a bowl of Raisin Bran cereal that tastes good in my mouth and helps me be regular out the other end. That’s Love Too.
Love is God, God is Love
See Ya
