Dona Nobis Pacem



I always look past the outer shell of a person into their heart. It is just not an issue to me. It should not matter, if we are to love our neighbors as ourselves. Every year I write on the subject of LOVE. It starts with me and then I want to pass it on to you. The challenge is to love the people of this World and not discriminate against anyone. Tall order I know. I believe that we all have the same needs and wants. Love is a powerful tool especially when we are afraid to go out of our comfort zone and extend the hand of kindness. I also believe that we all feel pain and the hurt of discrimanation. I ask you to look past our differences and speak from your heart.

If we would stop thinking about ourselves and care more for others then the World would be a better place. Love is when you put someone Else's needs above your own. Once again, I challenge you to love unconditionally anyone that comes in your life.

Interesting concept. I find unconditional love difficult for those I don't really know, but I believe I can unconditionally respect humans and their individual beliefs.

Debra, Thank you and Happy Peace Day to you and yours.

JBR,It could start with just a few folks...just saying. I know I am a Pollyana.

Gail, I think you do love unconditionally, purely, honestly and non-discrimately. It is sorta of one of the things Jesus would do. I try to love everyone I come in contact with that kind of love.

Peace and love to you ,
Pam

Nessa, thank you. You are so very sweet. It works best when you find the meanest most arnery person you can find and let go and just embrase that person.

Beautifully written and presented, Pam. Just beautiful. I got such a warm fuzzy when I stopped in here today. Your words about unconditional love are deep and true.

I want everyone to know how much time you have spent on helping us get the word out for BlogBlast and also especially for the time you spent yesterday visiting so many at the Peace Globe Gallery and leaving comment after comment. That was so kind of you.

Love to you, my friend.
I hope you experience peace and joy today and everyday.

Mimi, now you don't have to say all that nice stuff(turning pink) because I know that all I did was very little. It is you, Mimi, and all your amazing Bees that I give the credit to. Thank you for being a Peace loving person.

You are indeed a kind and passionate peace queen.

Love to you.
Peace,
Pam
