The key…

 tumblr_m2sqixNR7Y1qjnc56o1_500

Do nothing out of rivalry or conceit, but in humility consider others as more important than yourselves.
Phillipians 2:1-4

Pure love, pure motive.

Don’t give in to the temptation to manipulate, positioning myself over or ahead of anyone else.
Don’t try to own it all and don’t try to take what belongs to someone else.

Listen for the whispers that instruct me and boldly take steps in the direction I am being led.
Cultivate my soil.
 That is the key to joy and contentment.

Nothing will be withheld from me.

Encourage others to own what they have been given.
Build up, cheer and affirm — wherever possible.

Understand that some rival because they are afraid.
Understand that sometimes — that might be me.

We weren’t made to self glory — we were made to reflect glory.

    • Thank you for reading and for sharing the link to your blog… I did read it and I’m still thinking it over. What a servant your Dad was, and how he loved your mother! What precious memories to record. While I am thinking over several captions, the one below resonates with me this morning…
      “What we hold on to and what we let go, is as telling as the words we say. It took me years to understand it, but the words of Henry David Thoreau make perfect sense to me now.
      “The price of anything is the amount of life you exchange for it.”
      I realized that there were certain things, and in the past, even certain people, that simply violated my sense of thrift, exacting things out of me well beyond their worth. That concept was lost to me when I was young, but as I got older, with truth stripped of its clock of immortality, it was clear.” LB Johnson.

      These words will have an impact on my day.
      Thank you for sharing ❤
