Happy Heart Day: Show & sow LOVE

Here is Eva Faith. She is the newest member of my household. Here she is, standing on the promises of God. Good kitty!!! 


HOW we know what love is: 

Phil 4:8: Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.

1 John 3:16: This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers.

2 Tim 1:7: For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline.

Sure Romantic love is great. Sure I am probably saying that since I am engaged to MACK this year. No, actually I am not. Years and years I have gotten valentines from my parents and my brother. Without FAIL, Dad sends me chocolates and this year is NO exception! 
Thanks Dad!! 


Today is a day we can show love to EVERYONE!! 

Engaged or not, hitched, attached, it's complicated, swingin' single or NOT, we can show love to others, the way that God shows love to us! Put away the big box of chocolates and Kleenex and get to LOVING others! Send an email to a friend, buy a stranger a coffee, compliment someone you don't know, call you Mother, help your neighbor, extend a hand to that certain person who maybe rubs you the wrong way! 

Show love and SOW Love
What we plant will be what we harvest... don't forget!

MACK SOWING love after I foiled his hair!! 

Heart Healthy tips! 

Watch salt and sugar: People are so concerned with calories that they often over look sodium and sugar in foods! Limit sugars to natural sources like fruits and steer clear of sodium laden foods like fast food, processed and frozen foods. 

Get those Omega-3's in!! Salmon, oatmeal, walnuts are great sources. Or you can take Udo's oil, flax oil or fish oil daily to cover it, either way it's heart healthy! 

Get your heart pumping with at least 30 minutes of activity a day for general health. Keep active, moving and breathless when you are working out and you  increase your capacity to use oxygen. The more your heart can use, the more fit you are! 

Reduce stress in your life! Eliminate obligations and situations that keep you under unhealthy pressure, limit time with strenuous people and toxic relationships! You can clear your schedule as fast as you filled it and your heart will thank you. 

  Walk in forgiveness. Holding resentments will only hurt you and have been linked to stress related illness. Don't drink poison hoping someone else will die, walk in love and forgiveness and HEALTH for your heart, LITERALLY! 

Happy HEART day!!

Two thigns:

1) I LOVE this reminder - that LOVE is not necessarily what we paint into this little wrapped box, and the vast ways that we can show LOVE to others. Thanks!

2) I'M ADOPTING A KITTY TOO!! Where did you find Eva Faith? I am most likely going through the Animal Humane Society. The amount of time I've spent on PetFinder is ridiculous though.... something I'm sure you'd understand. :) Throughout my life I've had two dogs, a parrot and several other smaller birds, and once upon a time a turtle. But this is my first cat! Any advice for me?!
