Pillow Talk

Purpose: when you aim for an Intention; Resolution; Determination; to propose as an aim to Oneself. (Webster)

when i was a child, my purpose was to be kind and polite. loving came naturally and i trusted without trying.

when i was a teen, my purpose was to be kind and obey. kindness and love still came naturally, but i learned not to trust everyone.

when i was an adult, my purpose was to be kind, love, forgive, trust and show acts of mercy and grace to all, even to those that i did not trust.

now i am older, my purpose is to be kind, love and always be forgiving, trust with showing acts of mercy and grace to all and believe that my life has a purpose, even when i do not know what it is.

i anticipate what i will learn tomorrow, but for now, i will purposely live today.

Purpose: Intentionally being kind; Resolving to forgive; Determined to believe.

This blog really struck a note for me as I am a certified Life Purpose coach. I think that many women over the age of 40 have lost their passion... they feel that they have no greater purpose, but I don't agree.

We all have a purpose and were all uniquely created by our wonderful Father. Our greatest purpose is to honor Him in all that we do...

I think that you are doing it splendidly my dear Darlene.

I love your pictures. The camera is good to you.

It's rare when I like a picture of myself. I just don't see myself in most pictures.

Thanks for the inspiring thoughts.

And your poetry. It gives me a new way of looking at things.
