March ’18 Blog Train

Love Knows No Borders
Location:  Rush Ranch, Eastern Oregon
Wx:  Snow, Cold

Parkland, Florida.  It is difficult to see any wisdom in current events.  Yes, difficult to see how we can glue all the broken pieces back together again.  I’m not talking about politics, democrat or republican.  I’m talking about human values.  Our nation’s heart for each other.  At the very least, I wish that we lived in a world where all children are safe, healthy, fed, clothed, educated and nurtured. My husband is a direct descendent of Dr. Benjamin Rush, one of the signers of the United States Declaration of Independence. I wonder what the signers would think today – have we been good stewards of their hopes and dreams?

So, I focus.  I focus on local things.  Making a difference in my church, neighborhood, in my hometown.  It’s hard to see how letting someone else go in front of me in line at the grocery store can make any ripple of goodness throughout the state, country, world – but I keep on believing it is so – I keep on keeping on.  It is because I know the ending to this story – I do!  I know how it all ends.  They lived happily ever after.  It’s true.  I quote the Message bible:  I Colossians 1:18-20

“He was supreme in the beginning and – leading the resurrection parade – he is supreme in the end.  From beginning to end he’s there, towering far above everything.  Everyone.  So spacious is he, so roomy, that everything of God finds its proper place in him without crowding.  Not only that, but all the broken and dislocated pieces of the universe – people and things, animals and atoms – get properly fixed and fit together in vibrant harmonies, all because of his death, his blood that poured down from the cross.”

Keep the faith.

Although the title of this month’s Blog Train was “Love Knows no Borders“, I misread it to be “Bounds“.  It means the same in the long run, but I wanted you to know of the title difference.

“Love knows no reason, no boundaries, no distance. It has a sole intention of bring people together to a time called forever.” (unknown author)

As always, my designs are free to use however you wish, including for commercial use.  All I ask in return is that you pass along a kindness to another.  You can find all the other designer’s blog hop kits at Pixelscrapper.

  1. As usual your designs are breathtaking. I so want you to know that I felt so detached from the way this country seems to be headed, the constant fighting, complaining, selfishness that has seemed to be the new normal. You put everything I had been feeling into a much better place just by reminding me that there are those that give willingly to anyone and everyone as we all should be. You are such an inspiration and I hope you continue to give that hope to others as you have to me. God Bless you and your family. and Thank you for your beautiful designs.


    • Thank you, as always your contribution is beautiful. I pray for all of us, that we might find a way to see the good in others, rather than only the differences.


  2. I just had to say not only thanks once again for the gift of your digital work but the thoughts on changing our world as well as the love quote. How precious and I am going to use it in a mother daughter tea I am speaking at in April. God bless you!!

  6. I like that: focus on local things. Also little things .. as I just saw a post saying you never know when a simple smile might be just what a perfect stranger needed to give them a little boost. We can try our best to be a good influence in our sphere of influence.
    Thank you again for another set of beautiful designs.

  14. Thank you for your heartfelt words of wisdom. This is the first time finding your blog. I stopped and read many of your entries. Praying for Darlene’s family. Praying for you and your family. I believe small acts of kindness are noticed. We don’t know when, or by who, but they are noticed. Please keep doing them. Your graphics are beautiful, wonderful and full of hope. I will be back to your blog again, not just for the fantastic graphics that you loving share but for your words, offering hope and positivity. Thank you!


  15. Your beautiful designs make me sigh and smile. They are so lovely. Please don’t change what you do, it’s refreshing and beautiful.


  16. Thanks again Sunny .. what a stunning contribution to this month’s train 🙂 It is a sad world we live in nowadays, but unfortunately it is all the bad things that get the press .. you very rarely hear about the good things that people do! I refuse to buy papers or magazines (a) because of all the negativity and (b) because of all the lies they print. We can only help those we can, and try to do right by all the people we love and meet. Thanks for sharing your wise words .. you are an inspiration 🙂


  17. Thank you so much for your beautiful kit. I always enjoy your design and I love reading your wise words. You are so right. And I think doing good things locally is good enough. We can only do the best we can, and that is enough. Small acts of kindness and love is worth so much. I live in a total other county, Sweden, but I feel like our country or place on the world map does not make any difference. I feel like also here, people loose the human values, it´s “me and them” and “them” is so much less worthy as humans, for so many. I feel like the world is broken. But there is still hope. small and big acts of kindness and love for others, are the right way to go. that means so much more than all the hate and violence and war and suffering.
    I love the theme of this blogtrain. Love knows no borders (or bounds). that is so true and a thing to remember.


  18. Thank you so much! Your thoughts ring true, and your designs are gorgeous as always! I honestly think that a large part of “our” problem is that we don’t value human life as we used to. But we know things like this will happen in the closing days of the earth, and all we can do is the best we can with our own stewardship, our families and friends and church. Thanks again. — Paula
