We live in a culture where doing more is often frowned upon and giving and receiving permission to rest, enjoy and just be are what we often crave….
I often reflect on a day and wonder if my doing was productive…
I often wonder if my being brought about what my heart longs for…
I often wonder if my actions, thoughts, words and presence made a difference to anyone….
I want to live with purpose, with intention, and at peace….
I want to love more deeply, live more fully, give more generously and believe with everything in me that love wins, little things make a big difference and God uses ordinary people every day….
And so today when I found this quote, I realized it was a call to action….
A call to live different…
An invitation to do more….
I invite you to live it out with me and believe it will make a difference!
Do more than belong: participate.
Do more than care: help.
Do more than believe: practice.
Do more than be fair: be kind.
Do more than forgive: forget.
Do more than dream: work.
William Arthur Ward
One thought on “Do more…”
Trish, William Arthur Ward was a friend of mine. He worked for Texas Wesleyan, my college, and came to our wedding in 1957. He was a kind man who “practiced what he preached”. Sorry we could not connect today. later. b
