Looking Out for the Well-Being of Others is TRUE Love

I was watching a movie with Makenna today, she is still on her Veggie Tales kick. Larry (the cuccumber) mentioned in the movie a line that I love. He said, "Looking out for the well-being of others is TRUE love." I completely believe that. Who completely takes care of us? Our parents do as we are children but then we are left to figure out life alone. At least that is how some people view their life. Taking this 'walk with the Lord' I believe is how Yvonne put it, I have realized that none of us are alone. It is what we choose to believe. God surrounds us and looks out for our well-being, whether we acknowledge that or not. Our loved ones who have passed away surround us and protect us along with our angles and spirit guides.

Once we acknowledge that we are being taken care of by the light of those surrounding us on the other side, we are able to look out for the well-being of others. It is when we feel very alone and in a dark place that we cannot do this. In times of darkness, we have to take care of ourselves first by turning to God and those who walk in the light.

I always consider myself one to look out for the well-being of others. It is just my nature. I love people and I love being able to make a difference in people's lives. Going to that homeless shelter only made me realize more how much I want to give to those less fortunate than myself. I believe my calling in life is to help others in any way that I can. Making other people's dreams come true is far more important to me that making my own come true. My 2010 resolution is to help others. It is to become aware of people's needs and give, give, give. I will also work on showing more graditude and continue taking my 'walk with the Lord.'
