Loving Kindness

Kindness provides a house, but loves makes home.

Kindness packs an adequate sack lunch, but love put a note of encouragement inside.

Kindness provides a television set or computer as a learning aid, but love controls the remote control and cares enough insist a child "sign off".

Kindness sends a child to bed on time, but love tucks the cover around a child's neck and provides a good hug and kiss.

Kindness cooks a meal, but love selects "your favorite foods" menu and lights the candle.

Kindness writes a thank you note, but love thinks to include a joke or a photograph or book mark inside the envelope.

Kindness keeps a clean and tidy house, but love adds a bouquet of fresh flowers.

Kindness pours a glass of milk, but love occasionally adds a little chocolate sauce.

Kindness is doing what is decent, basic, courteous, and necessary for an even, smooth, and gentle flow of life.

Love is taking an extra step to make life truly exciting, creative, and meaningful! Love is what makes thing special.


"the teacher asked the pupils to tell the meaning of lovingkindness. A little boy jumped up and said , "well, if I was hungry and someone gave me  a piece of bread that would be kindness. But if they put a little jelly on it, that would be loving kindness."

Bless the lord, o my soul... Who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies; who satisfieth thy mouth with good things. Psalm 103:1,4,5
