Love Me Knots

 

 

LOVE ME KNOT:
“A union of spirits, an offering of love, a bond of infinite value and enduring ties,  lifting two souls to the sacred meeting place between heaven and earth” – Carrie Flintom, Pam Rundquist

A knot is a compact interlacing which ties and bonds two strands of materials together.  A knot can weave two single threads together into something so strong that nothing can ever break its strength.  To tie a simple knot is an uncomplicated process to learn, yet it is crucial in holding together even the most priceless and extraordinary things.  There are countless types of knots, but they are always used to tie or hold something together in a unifying bond. 

Now take that idea of a knot and all it’s purpose, and turn it into a  Love Knot.”  A Love Knot is an act of love and caring directed at another human being. By freely giving Love Knots to another person, we literally fold our spiritual arms around them through our words and deeds.  With every small knot we tie, we strengthen the bonds of kinship. The more knots we tie, the stronger the connection.  The process is eternally ongoing.

Go ahead…spread your wings!

Go ahead… spread your wings!

“It’s not who you are that holds you back; it’s who you think you’re not.” – Barbara Walters

Many of us hold ourselves back from embracing our purpose by not living true to, and not trusting our unique and God-given talents and gifts.  How many of us have let someone talk us out of pursuing something we are good at?  How many of us get deterred by our own doubts about ourselves? No one wins if we underestimate our capabilities and talents.  Our contribution to this world and everyone in it is in direct proportion to our belief that we have something of value to offer.   Make a conscious decision to move forward in life every day with conviction and courage instead of second-guessing or not trusting yourself.  The world needs you to step into your own greatness.  We are all meant to spread our wings and fly! So go for it!
