"Cast your bread upon the waters, for after many days you will find it again. " Ecclesiastes 11:1

Yesterday I made a quick trip to my mothers to meet with the landscape architect that was giving her ideas for her backyard. He is a grace to all who know him...kind, considerate of others all the time, and very hard working. His story was one that amazed me as he once travel extensively, made huge salaries and had actually gave it all up to follow his love...working with people, designing water features for their homes, landscaping etc. He told us yesterday he had planned to return to college to get his PHD in human sexuality. He sat at mom's little table with all of us gathered around, now focused on him and not on the plans on the table... and he told us people in relationships seem to forget to care about each other. He described his parents as much in love today as they were 40 years ago when they married. They still act like newly weds, always wanting to be together... enjoying each other, respecting each other, loving each other and caring for each other.

We all seem to forget about the special others in our lives, myself included. We are all focused on ourselves, our plans and our life. Somehow we lost focus on the other person in our life as being more important. We are busy skirting around edges doing all the peripheral things and forgetting to do the HONOR<> RESPECT. We are doing the maintenance on the work of the house, laundry, cooking but are we truly working on the affectionate part, the caring part?

Life involves both risk and opportunity when it comes to relationships and loving. Because there are no guarantees in life that there will be a tomorrow... we must live and love today. Life offers up love and the time to seize it is now...playing it safe may find it gone tomorrow.

Remember to show your love to that special person today.


"If clouds are full of water, they pour rain upon the earth. Whether a tree falls to the south or to the north, in the place it falls, there will it lie. Whoever watches the wind will not plant; whoever looks a the clouds will not reap. As you do not know the path of the wind or how the body if formed in a mother's womb, so you cannot understand the work of God, the Maker of all things." Ecclesiastes 11: 3-5
