Lovey Love... Believe in love.

Love is all around you. Is is consistently apparent in the rustling wind, the frothy beverage, the simple smile, the colorful faces. It is never silent. It screams at us; every moment, every minute ever meeting. It forges its light into every dark pathway.

It is our fault for failing to recognize it, grasp onto it and never let it go. To recognize love in your life is the first key to unlocking a number of successes in our lives. It is screaming at us behind closed doors, in a restaurant, and in your community. To believe and accept it, is where we MUST act. To capture it and believe it is our duty.

To believe in love. To live in it married to truth is even more enlightening.

The truth is a mighty and intense opportunity that we must not fear. However if we can grasp the understanding for of true optimism, and love life in and out of every situation will bring true joy.

Live in Love,
Davy Desmond

I like Steak... How About You?

In her interview with Time magazine in 1989, Mother Teresa said

"It's a big sadness; it's always the children who suffer most when there is no love in the family. That's a terrible suffering. Very difficult because you can do nothing. That is the great poverty. You feel helpless. But if you pick up a person dying of hunger, you give him food and it is finished."

There is a great reality that sweeps throughout the earth; It is the reality that millions of children DO NOT have enough food, clothes, and medical treatment. When I say the word 'enough', naturally everyone has a different opinion on what 'enough' is. Often in America, many have 'more that enough.' The ability to have a lunch break, the beauty of enjoying a meal with a family, and the ability to go to the movies at any time. These things are all wonderful things, and also a wonderful blessing.

However, once one sees the reality of a person not having anywhere NEAR 'enough', the understanding of this concept changes. The word enough changes to necessity and the human's desperation for survival. It is not a selfish thing to be blessed, but rather to recognize that to who much has been given, much much more will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked.

We know it is the duty of those who have much to give much. We know it is also the duty to enable others in the world to receive this beautiful blessing as well. No matter what you have been given, no matter what you know, may you not grow weary in giving this blessing to those who are in front of you, behind you
, right next to you and across the ocean.

I hope that the next time you are enjoying a steak... ENJOY it! However, may your enjoyment of it make you EVEN more grateful, more loving and more content knowing you can serve others. Do not take the options, choices and the blessings we have been given go to waste. Eat, be fed, and feed.

always, davy

Brierly Ashour

When the goldenrod is yellow,
And leaves are turning brown -
Reluctantly the summer goes
In a cloud of thistledown.

When squirrels are harvesting
And birds in flight appear -
By these autumn signs we know
September days are here.
