During the month of February, let’s celebrate Love. This is done by giving more thought to love and its beautiful life-giving, harmonious, positive energy. Love will change any negative condition into a positive one. If you have a relationship with another person whose behavior tends to be negative, such as temper tantrums, insisting on their own way, critical or just difficult to get along with, quietly love that person. That way you give them what they are asking for.
It is interesting to watch children respond to love. Emma Smiley, who founded The Children’s Church of The Golden Key in Victoria, British Columbia, instructed the teachers that if a child was disruptive or unhappy, they were to stop what they were doing and love that child. Dr. Smiley knew that love is more important than anything regarding children. Of course, this is true for adults, too.
Children should never be subjected to guilt or condemnation. Rather, they should be given generous amounts of love and acceptance.
Everything responds to love. Celebrate love by giving more love to everyone and everything around you. If you desire for your prayers to be answered, add more love to them. You do this by quietly tuning in to the source of love within you and letting it fill your whole being with its magnificent power and energy.
Celebrate love by living life lovingly. What does this mean? I asked this of some friends. Here is what they wrote: “Each day, each experience in life is an opportunity to ‘let only thoughts that bless dwell in my mind’. This love expands to every God-being, animal, bird, bug, flower, tree, raindrop, mountain, skyscraper, and our world.” – Jana Ostrom, Kalispell, Montana
“To live life lovingly means to live life from the divinity within you. Living life lovingly is to love all that is, unconditionally.” – Carole Fogle, Show Low, Arizona
“Live life lovingly is when Love is at the center of your universe and your life so that everything revolves around Love. What you do for others and yourself comes from Love.” – Barbara Moseley, Phoenix, Arizona.
Love makes all things right. Love sees only the good. Celebrate Love. Look with the eyes of love and see the magnificent goodness of God in yourself, all people, and the world. – Lovingly, Rev. John

A Little Humor …
On a tour of an old European castle, a young American visitor becomes very nervous. Finally the elderly guide, noticing how jumpy she is, tries to reassure her. “Don’t worry,” he tells her. “I’ve never seen a ghost in all the time I’ve been here.”
“And how long is that?” asks the tourist.
“About 400 years.” – Michael Knigge
