Sacred Life Sunday: Life = Hope



Just remember that as long as there is life, there is hope.

There is always hope.

I have been deeply touched in the past several days not just by Chani's passing, but by the attempted suicide of a friend's family member, and by the unexpected and sudden passing of another friend's family member. I have been thinking about them a lot. Life is so precious, so fragile, so fleeting.

And so I'm reminding you (and me) again to tell those we love how we feel about them...

It is so true, that if we have only this moment left, what would we say to each other and how would we act? What would be important?

Love to you O. Lots of sorrow for you right now...

Thankyou for the reminder.

Olivia,

This is so true, I sure wish I had a moment back so I could talk to my brother. The lesson here is to really tell those people you love that you care. I don't know why we all need to be constantly reminded of this but it seems to be true.

I second Kim's comment may love wash its beauty all around you today. You are very precious to me.

Hugs,

Kate

Hello beloved Olivia..

May you feel our hugs holding you tight and know that you are loved.

What is that thing in the photo, is that a flower or some sort of sea creature? It's beautiful and alien looking.

Have a super day!

Olivia said...

Thank you, Patti. Questions I've been thinking of: if you had ___amount of time left, and you knew it, what would you do? What would you say? Thank you for the love, Patti. xo, O

Olivia said...

I am grateful for you and your Big Love, Kim. Peace and more Big Love, O

PS When I think of Big Love, I think of you, who is an expert at encouragement, inspiration, and remote love!

Thank you too Kim. You are likewise to me. It is an important lesson! Blessings and love, O

Thank you, Ang.

It is a "hoya" blossom, according to LoveHubbie, cultivated in the greenhouse. He said he had to take dozens of pictures to get this one. He also sprayed it with water to get the droplets. It is a unique picture, to be sure.

I hope you have a restful wonderful day as well, O

Thank you for thinking of me Olivia.

I'm so sorry to hear about Chani's death. (I saw your post awhile ago, but haven't had alot of computer time lately, so I'm a little behind.) I used to visit her blog sporadically and she visited mine sometimes too. She was a lovely person and it's a big loss. May you find some peace at this time.

Heather,

You've had WAY more important things to do than to comment on blogs, that's for sure.

Yes, Chani read your blog I know.

Thank you, and I'm still praying for you.

Love,

O
