Breathing-Fragile-Life caregiving comfort compassion conscientious-ness exercise healing Joan Winifred

Cheering UP

“Strengthen the hands that hang down and the feeble knees, and keep making straight paths for your feet, so that what is lame may not be put out of joint but, rather, may be healed.”

“Pursue peace with all people. […] (Hebrews 12:12-14)

PRO…verbing…(compassion exercise, huh?) every day opportunities abound and are found… around..

Anxiety in a man’s heart weighs it down, But a good word cheers it up. (Proverb 12:25)

Being aware (and remaining aware) of what people/fellow-breathing-fragile-life need… is necessary to be of any help.

(A SMILE, a KIND word, practical assistance, etc.)

“trying” to help… is a self-sacrificing-life-style for some of us (dedicated to compassion)…however, all of us, at one time or another, need help in one form or another.

How can I help today?

What help do I need today?

attitude birds choice comfort compassion education Hope Joan Winifred mind food spiritual food things i learned worries

3 little birdies

26 Observe intently the birds of heaven; they do not sow seed or reap or gather into storehouses, yet your heavenly Father feeds them. […] (Matthew 6:26)

To the animals he gives food,To the young ravens that call out for it. (Psalm 147:9)

An observation:  Do birds worry?!  No, they are busy eating, singing, flying, soaring–being birdies, lol 🙂

Worrying is paralyzing and damaging!… (and gets ya no where.)

“when” human“kind” (chooses compassion) …there is enough for everyone (to share)…🙂

the earth is rich!… full of plenty to sustain/maintain life… for birds, for people… for all-fellow-fragile-life!!… “when” man”cruel” selfishly mismanages Earth… misuses resources/abuses power…causing poverty, famine, hunger… and not just for food.

My positive outlook/Hope:  ultimately/eventually everything will be alright… with compassion (and Divine Intervention) education!

enjoyed this past reading(s)…

The Bible makes many references to birds, often to teach valuable lessons. For example, concerning the ostrich and its incredible speed, God said to a man named Job: “When she rises up and flaps her wings, she laughs at the horse and at its rider.”*The ostrich is the largest living bird, and it is the fastest runner, able to reach speeds of about 45 miles an hour (72 km/h) for short bursts.  (Job 39:13, 18) God also asked Job: “Is it by your understanding that the falcon soars, . . . or is it at your order that an eagle flies upward?” (Job 39:26, 27) The lesson? Birds perform their feats without any help from us. Their abilities testify to God’s wisdom, not ours. [excerpted “Observe Intently the BirdsAwake! 2014]

What i’ve come “to learn” through Bible study/practice (through the years)…is putting my personal preferences aside… and attempting to do “God’s” Will (and not just live by my own selfish will/desire/limited understanding/perspective of things/life)… aka living to the best of my abilities in harmony with the unfolding, progressive Divine Purpose… aka compassion, etc…things turn out alright & PEACE is found!:)

My experience: “there is more happiness in giving than there is in receiving.”

Check it out IF You🙂 choose…(further reading and research)…matthew/6/
