Never Waste An Opportunity to Say "I Love You"

I love you image with heart necklace
There are 1,440 minutes in the day. That equals 86,400 seconds. How many seconds does it take to say "I love you"?

Maybe 3, 5?

Look at all the opportunities you have in your day to tell someone that you love them.

There are no "real" second chances. You can't re-wind time. There is no Dr. Who to help you travel between time and dimensions.

Jules Verne is not going to build you a time machine.

Think of all the people who cross your path every day. How many of them would benefit from hearing you say those three simple words? What kind of benefit would you get?

The best kind of benefit ever. The knowledge that you were able to tell someone you love them and mean it with all your heart.

You love your spouse.

You love your children.

You love your parents.

You love your siblings.

You love all members of your extended family.

You love your friends.

You love your neighbor.

You love your Christ family.

You love.

Show how much you love by taking a few seconds every day and telling those around you. You not only will make them happy, but you will be happy as well.

It's reciprocal.

To Love is to be Loved.

"And the Lord make you to increase and abound in love one toward another, and toward all men, even as we do toward you:"
-- 1 Thessalonians 3:12

You're right! There is no time like the present to tell someone that you love them! I say it to my kids every day when they walk out the door for school!

Saying "I love you!" is so very important! Not just saying, but showing, but saying is a good start! :)

Thanks for stopping by Natural and Free on my SITS Day, too! :)

Hi Vicky
I cannot agree more, but I want to add that I pray our Lord would truly pour His love in my heart through His sweet Spirit of love so that I can even love them more!
Thank you, dar one and have a blessed weekend.

Thank you all for your comments and blessings. I wanted to write something that only took a few minutes but would have a major impact. I'm glad that it did. My prayers are that everyone can find the time to say "I love you" to those important people in their lives. Have a blessed day. Vicki

{Melinda} Beautiful reminder. Yes, I've had a few sad reminders of this over this past year. My MIL contacted a brain virus and is not completely incapacitated. A friend's son was injured by a horse and suffered a traumatic brain injury. Both of them woke up thinking it was going to be a "normal" day. We never know what life will bring. That's why saying "I love" you is so important!

This is sooo true! You are an inspiration for so many people, my dear friend and neighbor...

Vicki M. Taylor said...

Melinda, yes, you never know what today will bring. Only He knows and we must trust in His plans.

Thanks, Karen. I try. I try.

Have a blessed day!
