Do it with your heart!

Do it with your heart!

This saying comes from the Dhammapada, which is a collection of quotes from Buddah. I once took a class in Eastern Philosophy and read the entire book. It took a while because the sayings really make you think…Here are a few more:

“Do not give your attention to what others do or fail to do; give it to what you do or fail to do.”

“As irrigators lead water where they want, as archers make their arrows straight, as carpenters carve wood, the wise shape their minds.”

“It is easy to see the faults of others…it is hard to see our own.”

“Like a lovely flower full of color but lacking in fragrance, are the words of those who do not practice what they teach.”

Take each of these with you today, and see if you can find the truth for yourself! Thanks for stopping by, and have a wonderful day! Be well! ^..^

Lao Tzu

Lao Tzu

I just have to admire Lao Tzu for his wisdom and his words that I find inspiring! More Lao Tzu quotes:

“Knowing others is wisdom, knowing yourself is Enlightenment.”

“Be content with what you have; rejoice in the way things are. When you realize there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you.”

“Great acts are made up of small deeds.”

May you have a magnificent Monday! Thank you for stopping by! ^..^

God gave us dogs. He gave us the dog to show us what unconditional love is. He gave us the dog for companionship. He gave us the dog to comfort us in time of need. And, he gave us the dog to lift our spirits! Here is a video that my cousin shared with me about God giving us the dog!

I hope that you enjoyed this as much as I did! And here is to the little flower that lives with us in our house and is a great source of love, joy, and comfort to us both!

Yes, I have a tasty garden! At least the deer seem to think so! :) Because the deer like my garden so much, most of what I have planted are deer proof or deer resistant plants. There is a difference between the two. The deer proof plants they just will not touch, like my rosemary. The deer resistant plants are plants that the deer will not normally eat, but they will eat if they are hungry enough. I caught a few photos of one such deer who actually nibbled on the rosemary only to spit it out! So for today, I share with you photos of this lovely doe! The captions speak for themselves! Enjoy!
