Sharing love with others is a commitment I make over and over each day. Even though others may not always treat me with kindness or respect, I cultivate kindness through the way I respond.
My thoughts, words, and deeds create a bountiful garden filled with color and beauty. I not only plant seeds of kindness, I provide nourishment through positive attention, allowing them to flourish.
When others are impatient with me, or if I find myself falsely accused, I remain calm and centered. I open my heart to the love of God that transcends events or emotions. The way I respond to people or circumstances in life is my responsibility, and above all else I choose kindness.
Then Jesus said, “Father, forgive them; for they do not know what they are doing.”—Luke 23:34
