This will help today........

Another little thought that I had
this morning that I want to
share with you (they just keep
coming :).

I've learned that 'whatever I
give, from a sincere, truly
humble, caring and giving
heart, I get more back
in abundance'.

I was talking to a farmer in
a small town here in Texas
several years ago. He shared
some profound wisdom with
me.

One thing he taught me is,
'the corn seed is much smaller
than the stalk.' It was very
close to harvest time. The
stalks of corn were taller
than me (I'm 6'3").

He reached into his truck and
retrieved a flattened and
mostly empty sack. He
reached inside and got
a quarter hand full of corn
seed.

He picked out one seed
with his other hand and
held it up to a stalk of
corn.

He simply said, "This
stalk used to be the
size of this seed."

I might be a little slow
sometimes, but I GOT
what he was saying to
me :)

When you need love,
you plant seeds of
love, you reap stalks
of love.

When you need kindness
shown to you, you plant
seeds of kindness by
being kind to others, you
reap stalks of kindness.

When you're at the
supermarket and you
need a smile, you plant
seeds of smiles, you
get back stalks of smiles.

My biggest question in
my life right now, is not,
'what am I getting?' My
biggest question is,
'what am I sowing?'

You become the prophet
of your own life by
the seeds that you plant.

Tomorrow's stalks are
today's seeds.

I appreciate you more
than you can imagine!

Much love,

Michael
