Happy Friday Sunshines! Independence Day is close!
Getting ready for the weekend and a little work up on the booth at Goat Feathers here in town. This week has flown by and as usual working on more than one project at a time, gee, I could be a project manager!:)
Thinking how blessed we are to live in this great country, and be free! Remembering Independence Day, the meaning of it, take nothing for granted! EVER! Please keep our military and their families in your thoughts and prayers for wherever they may be, they are working very hard, and away from their families.
Recently you hear good deeds being reported in the newspapers, like strangers picking up a tab for a military family out to dinner or buying them a cuppa joe! :) One of my favorite sayings, is, "you reap what you sow" and whatever you give you get back triple fold. In other words, I guess, the Golden Rule huh. Here are just a few versions, found at The GoldenRule.net
Commonsensism: A version of the golden rule put into modern, non-religious terms that some people live by is, "Treat people the way you'd like to be treated".
Buddhism: 560 BC, From the Udanavarga 5:18- "Hurt not others with that which pains yourself."
Judaism: 1300 BC, from the Old Testament, Leviticus 19:18- "Thou shalt Love thy neighbor as thyself."
Hinduism: 3200 BC, From the Hitopadesa- "One should always treat others as they themselves wish to be treated."
Zoroastrianism: 600 BC, From the Shast-na-shayast 13:29- "Whatever is disagreeable to yourself, do not do unto others."
Confucianism: 557 BC, From the Analects 15:23- "What you do not want done to yourself, do not do to others."
Christianity: 30 AD, From the King James Version , 7:12- "Whatsoever ye would that others should do to you, do ye even so to them."
Stay cool, be kind, calm, watch the fireworks and be mindful of fire on the 4th! My heart goes out to all of those cities on fire right now and for the past month!
God Bless America, the people who make it strong, especially our Military members! I love my Air Force Family! Take care Sunshines! Thank you to the lovely Karen at The Graphics Fairy for the wonderful vintage free images! Love Kat =^.^=
