Dance!

Copyright 2017 by R.A. Robbins

“Dance. Dance for the joy and breath of childhood. Dance for all children, including that child who is still somewhere entombed beneath the responsibility and skepticism of adulthood. Embrace the moment before it escapes from our grasp. For the only promise of childhood, of any childhood, is that it will someday end. And in the end, we must ask ourselves what we have given our children to take its place. And is it enough?”
― Richard Paul Evans, The Christmas Box Miracle: My Spiritual Journey of Destiny, Healing and Hope

A heart of stone that has a long face can never express love.”

The True Meaning of Life

Copyright 2015 by R.A. Robbins
“The true meaning of life is to plant trees, under whose shade you do not expect to sit.” – Nelson Henderson

So what does today’s quote mean?  It speaks to me about starting something  you do not expect to see accomplished or be able to benefit from in your lifetime.  Thinking ahead and beyond your own current needs or wants for the greater good and the benefit of future generations.

What trees are you planting not expecting to enjoy the shade?  They may or may not be actual trees.  Maybe you are planting ideas, or acts of service, or seeds of kindness.  Perhaps you are thinking about the values you are instilling in your children and how future generations might go on to change the world.  Something to ponder.  Feel free to share below if you feel led.
