Language is more than words . . .


A pat on the back,
A hug, a smile, being there -
The language of love.

You captured a wonderful shot. Our body language can even tell when our words are not true, so sometimes it says much more than words.

How very true ... and what a great photo to reflect that.

All of us need to be loved and touched and hugged and kissed... That's just what life is all about. We are people who need each other. Great post, Glenda.
Hugs,
Betsy

Such a sweet shot. Do you still have your best friend from when you were a young girl? I do. We became friends in first grade 60 years ago. We still keep in touch. She lives in Houston.

Those words are so true. I never knew until I had to live alone what treasures they can be. I do take advantage of getting all the smiles and hugs I can.

Great picture. Girls make the best of friends.

Wow, I am so very far behind. First of all, the empty nest one just was fabulous - such great pictures, such a wonderful analogy. Beautiful. I sent the link to my blog friend whose last child graduated last night. She'll love it - and cry!

VBS - love the Very Basic Stuff - so true. Stats show that VBS is responsible for a great majority of decisions for Jesus. The High Seas curriculum is designed right here in Loveland where Group Publishing is located - started in the basement of Thom Schultz. One year our church got to be the guinea pigs for the next year's program. They came and did all of the teaching and working to try it all out - it was really neat. My grand girls are doing that one this year at another church - their second VBS of the summer already - we're trying to find one each week! Week after next, Care Bear goes to camp, which is the second place kids make decisions!

Then the one about your friend in the nursing home - oh, my. Just beautiful. You are a gifted writer, thinker, and photographer. I can only imagine what a wonderful teacher you were - what grade(s) did you teach?

Oh, what a touching photo! Yup, we could speak all kinds of the global languages, but the best one is the language of love!
