Giving away a little LOVE…

Feeling a giving mood coming on. Leave me your favorite quote about love and I will put your name in my trusty mason jar! On August first I will draw a name and send along a little LOVE to you! This is a beautiful book by Susan Branch one of my favorite artists!

Here is one of mine: A blessed thing it is for any man or woman to have a friend, one human soul whom we can trust utterly, who knows the best and worst of us, and who loves us in spite of all our faults. ~ Charles Kingsley

Here’s a favorite quote about love.

“Spread love everywhere you go: first of all in your own house. Give love to your children, to your wife or husband, to a next door neighbor…Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier.”

–Mother Theresa

“Choose your Love, love your choice”
from a little pillow on my bed!
I love Susan Branch!!

Without love, where would you be now?
(Doobie Brothers)

I like to ponder that quote from time to time…



People need love the most when they deserve it the least.
I Peter 4:8


“To be loved, you must love.” Matthew Kelly

Simple and true! 🙂 God bless!

“Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends.” John 15:13

This is the first thing that came to my mind,

“For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in him shall not perish, but have eternal life.”

— John 3:16

I used to have all of Susan Branch’s books … I want to collect them again – they are beautiful!


“I never knew how to worship until I knew how to love.” Henry Ward Beecher


“Life is the flower for which love is the honey.”

Victor Hugo

Our love must not be a thing of words and fine talk. It must be a thing of action and sincerity.
~1John 3:18

“If I could speak all the languages of the earth and of angels, but didn’t love others, I would only be a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal.”

1 Corinthians 13:1

If the people we love are stolen from us, the way to have them live on is to never stop loving them. Buildings burn, people die, but real love is forever.
– The Crow


“Love is the master key that opens the gates of happiness”


here’s mine:
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.

Says it in a nutshell doesn’t it?

But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8

There is only one happiness in life,
to love and be loved.

– George Sand –

blessings to you and yours,

“Smile and the world smiles with you”
Love your blog—why haven’t I peeked before> Marybeth

“Love isn’t love until you give it away”…unsure of the author.

Love is friendship set to music. (E. Joseph Cossman)


Oh, oh, oh…pick me!!! My birthday is August 5th so this would make a perfect present for me (hint, hint!).
P.S. I had bought some of your soap for my mother for Mother’s Day and she says that she remembers you – didn’t you used to subscribe to Mary Kenyon’s book list “Once Upon a Time”?


Oops…forgot to leave my quote!!! “Love is Patient, Love is Kind”

“Faith, Hope, Love. And the greatest of these is Love.”

Flowers are love in bloom. (My own quote.)

What a fabulous give-away. Please count me in. Now I’m off to read and gather some new quotes from the comments. xoxo


“and the greatest of these is to love thy neighbor as thyself”
susan, I hope everthing goes well with your surgery.

“All you need is love” -John Lennon & Paul McCartney

“It is a good thing to be rich,
and a good thing to be strong,
but it is a better thing to be
Loved of many friends.”

“Why not go out on a limb, that is where the fruit is.” Mark Twain

Hope your surgery goes okay, and your recovery is even better.



The Magic Of Love

Love is like magic
And it always will be.
For love still remains
Life’s sweet mystery!!
Love works in ways
That are wondrous and strange
And there’s nothing in life
That love cannot change!!
Love can transform
The most commonplace
Into beauty and splendor
And sweetness and grace.
Love is unselfish,
Understanding and kind,
For it sees with its heart
And not with its mind!!
Love is the answer
That everyone seeks…
Love is the language,
That every heart speaks.
Love can’t be bought,
It is priceless and free,
Love, like pure magic,
Is life’s sweet mystery!!

– Helen Steiner Rice –

Jen Bryant

Love is a verb, a choice, a light. It continues to burn after the candle has been extinquished on this side. It beckons from the yonder shore for us to rise to the occasion, to continue the ministry of Christ, to shine for the King, until our own ‘transformation’ where we shall be changed in the twinkling of an eye to reflect the very essence of Love, that being Christ the Lamb. (my own thoughts)
“Weep not for me. Wear my true love upon your heart always, for surely Love is stronger than death. I’ll see you in that glad morning my dearest.” ( inspired by a song I once heard)

Love is an action, not a feeling. (unknown)

I’m glad to hear that your surgery went well.


“If you judge people, you have no time to love them.” — Mother Teresa

I just thought of another one that I really like:
“True love listens, aware that within the mystery of exchange we are united and that tru exchange takes place not only in what we say but by what we hear profoundly. The mouth pronounces words, but the heart listens. And words remain in the heart – like a pebble thrown in a pond – leaving a lasting imprint in it’s very depths.” ~Daphne Rose Kingma


Here’s mine –
Every man’s life is a fairytale written by God’s fingers.
-Hans Christian Anderson
