Pass love on June 20, 2005 2:41 PM

... PASS LOVE ON ...

Purple Butterfly

Someone taught you how to love,
and probably didn't know it.
And in return, with every day,
It's now your turn to show it.

Tiny Butterfly

When you love, you give a gift,
And when you're gone it stays
To be passed on by the ones you loved
To make some one else's day.

Tiny Butterfly

So remember someone who loved you,
And show how much you care,
By sharing all the love they gave
With people everywhere.

Tiny Butterfly

When you give away your love,
That doesn't mean it's gone.
Love will last forever,
so open YOUR heart...
and pass it on.

Dear Daria,

What a beautiful, inspirational card!  Its message is loud and clear.  It should be followed because it's fair...  But I just wonder how often it is actually put into practice?  How do yo feel about it?

   I think it's important to be a loving, caring person.   There are so many kind's of love.   The love of a Mother and child,  Husband and Wife, Siblings, Friends...etc.   When my marriage was over I knew in my heart I would have Love in my life again.  I wasn't willing not to have that again.  You have to give love to get love.  [ send green star]

"Three Old Men" Italy Circa 1535
By Paramigianino (Girolamo Francesco Maria Mazzola)

A woman came out of her house and saw three old men
with long white beards sitting in her front yard.
She did not recognize them.

She said "I don't think I know you, but you must be hungry.
Please come in and have something to eat."

"Is the man of the house home?", they asked.
"No", she replied. "He's out."
"Then we cannot come in", they replied.

In the evening when her husband came home,
she told him what had happened.
"Go tell them I am home and invite them in!"

The woman went out and invited the men in.
"We do not go into a house together," they replied.
"Why is that?" she asked.

One of the old men explained: "His name is Wealth,"
he said pointing to one of his friends,
and said pointing to another one, "He is Success, and I am Love."

Then he added, "Now go in and discuss with your husband
which one of us you want in your home."

The woman went in and told her husband what was said.
Her husband was overjoyed.
"How nice!!", he said. "Since that is the case, let us invite Wealth.
Let him come and fill our home with wealth!"
His wife disagreed. "My dear, why don't we invite Success?"

Their daughter-in-law was listening from the other corner of the house.
She jumped in with her own suggestion: "Would it not be better to invite Love?
Our home will then be filled with love!"

"Let us heed our daughter-in-law's advice," said the husband to his wife.
"Go out and invite Love to be our guest."
The woman went out and asked the three old men,
"Which one of you is Love? Please come in and be our guest."

Love got up and started walking toward the house.
The other two also got up and followed him.
Surprised, the lady asked Wealth and Success:
"I only invited Love, Why are you coming in?"

The old men replied together: "If you had invited Wealth or Success,
the other two of us would've stayed out,
but you invited Love, and wherever he goes, we go also.
Wherever there is Love, there is also Wealth and Success!"

... Especially For You ...

Where there is pain, may you have peace and mercy.
Where there is self-doubting, may you have a renewed
confidence in your ability to work through it.
Where there is tiredness, or exhaustion, may you have
understanding, patience, and renewed strength.
Where there is fear, may you have love, and courage.
