Whimsical Finds & WholeHEARTED Words of Affirmation

Feel a bit tired? A little stuck, lonely or confused? Just a reminder you are not a collection of your failures and flaws. So let them fly gently away from your exquisite branches. Neither are you the weather, which at times bitterly moves you or bids you to bend.

Look closer.

You’re connected to the vine; rooted in love, growing in strength and wisdom, healing in the tender light of loving kindness.

You met my friend, Jenny Sweeney HERE, and when the artist’s magic love wand touches sweet creatures (like her mama’s rescue donkey, Peaches), POOF…the atmosphere is suddenly a little sweeter to breathe.

Timeless Love Song from 1971

And you can tell everybody this is your song
It may be quite simple but now that it’s done
I hope you don’t mind
I hope you don’t mind
That I put down in words
How wonderful life is while you’re in the world

Know the Love Language of Your Heart?

Maybe more importantly…do you know theirs?

In the early 90s, Dr. Gary Chapman identified five ways of receiving/expressing love and a sort of template for discussing needs and desires bloomed into existence to help couples better communicate.

It fascinates me that in Chapman’s 2010 study (10,000 participants), the breakdown of the 5 love languages reflected quite evenly distributed results:

Words of affirmation: 23 percent
Quality time: 20 percent
Acts of service: 20 percent
Physical touch: 19 percent
Receiving gifts: 18 percent

Learning your loved one’s primary love language can strengthen your bond in a significant way and become a sort of gift that keeps bearing fruit.

Here is a great place to learn about 5 love languages if you care to go deeper.

A Lovely Prayer

Do you know your partner’s favorite song? Your best friend’s or your kid’s? If not, discover it soon. Because it can be a way for you to feel close to their heart even when miles and time separate you. Know what I mean?

My mama’s favorite song is “The Prayer,” and every time I hear the beautiful chords play in the introduction, all at once I’m with her in spirit. The notes remind me of her love, her laugh, her tears, her mercy, and her amazing heart.

MUSIC is a sort of quantum magically mysterious connector which transcends barriers including space and time.

I pray we’ll find your light/And hold it in our HEARTS/When stars go out each night/Remind us where you are…

A Potted Plant – by Hafiz

I pull a sun from my coin purse each day.

And at night I let my pet, the moon
Run freely into the sky meadow.

If I whistled,
She would turn her head and look at me.

If I then waved my arms,
She would come back wagging a marvelous tail
Of stars.

There are always a few men like me
In this world

Who are house-sitting for God.
We share His royal duties:

I water each day a favorite potted plant
Of His–
This earth.

Ask the Friend for love.
Ask Him again.

For I have learned that every heart will get
What it prays for
Most.

    Good morning Michele. You bring so much love and beauty to the world. Thank you for todays post, which was a life affirming way for me to start my day. I watched your latest video. What was that darling house with the white and yellow painted floor? Loved it!

      Hi Celia – thank you for your support and encouragement. The little home with yellow check floors was Storybook Cottage in Leipers Fork (near Franklin, TN) we rented on vacation last summer. So inspiring and the interior design is by City Farmhouse (they are legends!). I brought along a few things to style some shots and had some design fun. 🙂
