What joy do you bring to the world and to those who are around you? Some people waste their precious time thinking about the great things that they will accomplish. Thinking doesn't quite get you there, now does it? No one knows what your thinking, unless you share your thoughts with others. I know people that are always suggesting what could be done, but as I hear the words I want to scream, "haven't you done that yet?" "What's keeping you?"
Maybe they are really saying, "I would like to see this done, so who wants to do it?" Maybe it is a question of ability, they can't for some reason. Sometimes it's a question of coming up with the funds to do it. Other times, people are overwhelmed with their own ideas. They have so many, channeling through, is it a matter of prioritizing? Some become defeated and give up. These are the people that think of themselves as failures. They aren't failures, they just never got there, for many different reasons.
Everyone has something to offer and most great accomplishments begin with an "idea" followed by baby steps. There are times when you just have to do it. Maybe you need a gentle push? People that are home see all the things that need to be done, and lack the drive to get started. It helps to go out and then come back again. You really do see things differently. Working and scheduled people never place too much on their plate at once, making each job doable, a little at a time. Eventually, it all comes together.
Do you try your best to bring to those around you the warmth that is inside of you? Your gift to others could be the warmth of your smile, companionship and friendship. Share with them your song, laughter, and joy. Bring sweetness to the world around you.
I often wonder what it would be like if God had not created woman for men. Woman are the creators of beauty, just look around and see for yourself the ways we bring it!
There again, to be perfectly balanced, just what would it be like if we didn't have the men in our life to motivate us, giving us the drive to see to their happiness, and comfort?
Soon it will be father's day and as we women prepare something "special" for them, we know what a gift they are to us.
