What is truely important in this life?
With all the things going on in the world, I think sometimes we wonder what is truely important to us, deep in our hearts. I started this post last week and just had the title listed without any text. It was funny. I actually received several comments without having really said anything except my question. I know we all wonder about this and it surely fills our wonderings and dreams.......what does mean the most to us? Here are some of my thoughts on this: (What is truely important in my life?) My family (I love them so much and am constantly praying for them, for their happiness, health, safety, etc. To be a good person........with all the terrible things in the world, I want so much to be a good example to others and to inspire and help people Faith......I think that my faith in God is of great importance. It helps me constantly. Friends.......what would life be like without them; I shudder to imagine! Charity.......I think a lot about those who are homeless, afraid, alone, confused.......there is so much we can do to help others. One of my favorite people is Mother Theresa. She was an amazing, wonderful person. She gave to others and helped others so unselfishly. She cared about the dignity and soul of others. I admire her so much and would like to be like her in many ways. Humor.......I think it is good if we can smile and laugh and be happy and bring laughter to others. Not at the expense of others but in good humor and joy in life. Nature.......life is so beautiful and the natural world inspires me so much. There is so much beauty and love in nature for us to enjoy! Children.......I love children. They make me so happy. Their wonderful voices and laughter and energy fills me with joy!! Art......I love to see beautiful art......that is filled with goodness and gentleness. I admire the artists that have the integrity to share beautiful art that uplifts us. Music.......beautiful music truely can make us happy! These are just some of the things in life that mean so much to me!! I would love to hear about what is dear to your hearts!! Be well and take care! Debbie www.artmajeur.com/debbieschramer www.sunflowerhouse.etsy.com
