The path of love is not easy to walk
Littered with noise, cluttered objects, peevishness, annoyances
To walk along a forest path,
hushed boughs above you
soft grass below you,
It is easy then to feel peaceful,
calm waves of agape floating away
into the universe
So much more difficult when
stepping over piles of dirty laundry
ringing phones, bickering children,
cross co-workers, honking horns

No need then, to send it out


Love is still
all around you

Breathe it in
And set your feet straight
Back on the path again.

Thank you...I needed this lovely reminder in the midst of my day full of loud, bickering (healthy and loving) children and too much to do (in the home we are blessed to live in).
