Sunday, March 6, 2011 - The Seed of Love

(Sent out Sunday Morning at 12:30AM for any early rising members in Labrador, Greenland and Brazil)

Good morning, everyone. Welcome to Chapel on this, our fifth week of Sunday Inspirational Messages. We have a return guest at the all know him as the dashing, the charming and the irrepressible Neeko. Today he speaks to us in his professional capacity as Neeko S. Spaulding, PhD. Please give him a warm welcome.....

Hello all :o)

Pawsome Thanks for having Meee as your guest speaker on this Blessed Sunday.

I would like to give gracious thanks to our wonderful Chaplain, Gorgeous Mary-Margaret, for making our beautiful gathering possible.

Today, I am going to share my thoughts about Love and I would like to start with a quote from the Bible:
“Love is patient; Love is kind and envies no one.
Love is never boastful, nor conceited, nor rude; never selfish, not quick to take offense. There is nothing Love cannot face; there is no limit to its faith, its hope, and endurance. In a word, there are three things that last forever: faith, hope, and Love; but the greatest of them all is Love.”

The way I see it, is that when we are born, God plants the seed of Love in our hearts.
For that seed to grow, it has to be nurtured.
I'm so blessed to have Pawrents, Family members and Friends that shower Meee with Love so my seed of Love grows with each passing day.
When one is showered with Love, one can return that Love into the lives of others making them feel important and special.
By doing this we can make our world a better place.

The magical thing about being Loved is that we can overcome anything that life "throws" our way.
You know you are Loved when no matter how many mistakes you may go thru, the person that Loves you the most is always there with encouraging wordsand positive attitude.

Some may think that nobody Loves them when all they need to know, is that God always Loves us unconditionally. He is our Creator and He is always by our side. The depth of God's Love cannot be measured.
The beauty of it is that God always sends the right people into our lives to shower us with His Love.
When we are Loved we have that inner peace that is so important in our lives. It gives us tranquility to feel that everything is going to be alright. It gives us the patience to understand why things are happening the way they do. It gives us the power to not take offense when somebody ishaving a bad day.

I would like to conclude with Don Juan de Marco's quote:
"There are four questions of value in life... What is sacred? Of what is the spirit made? What is worth living for, and what is worth dying for? The answer to each is the same. Only Love."

May you always feel Loved so your seed of Love never stops growing ♥

(more applause....respectful yet enthusiastic)

Thank you so much for your wonderful Inspirational Message, Dr. Spaulding.
The Ladies of the Leather Collar have voted to present you with this lovely engraved circular tag to be added to your neckpiece - the YorkieBrigade Chapel "Sit, Stay and Speak" award. Note that it's engraved with your name "Neeko S. Spaulding" on the back side. This is the first ever award of this kind commissioned by the Ladies of the Leather Collar and is quite an honor.

(Dr. Spaulding blushes and finds himself speechless, but the smile on his face says it all for him)

We truly appreciate you, Dr. Spaulding, for taking the time out of your busy schedule to address us, and to remind us what friendship and love are all about.

Coffee and Danish will be served in the garden in the Chez de le Chien, courtesy of the Fachsie Dachsie Brownie troop #411.

Please turn to your neighbors and wag your tails as a sign of peace.

Bingo and potluck in the community center Thursday at 7:00PM. Don't forget to set your clocks forward next weekend or you'll be late to Chapel.
Volunteer speakers are being recruited and everyone is encouraged to share their story or present us with an Inspirational Message. The more we give to our community, the more our community will give back.

The congregation that prays together, stays together.

Blessings and see you next Sunday....
