Love Quotes from Baci

I admit it! I enjoy chocolate more than I should. I try to only have 2 small pieces each day, usually in the morning.
Trader Joe’s grocery store has the best price on organic chocolate bars in the area. Mahalo bars and Green and Black’s Organic bars are also good choices, when on sale, from Whole Foods grocery.
In years past I used to enjoy Baci chocolates. What makes their packaging unique is that they include a positive quote, often about love, in each chocolate’s wrapper. It is written not only in English, but also in other languages, such as Italian, Greek, and Spanish. 

Here are a few quotes that I thought you might enjoy.
  • Be lovable if you want to be loved. – Ovidio
  • A loving heart is forever young. – Proverbio Greco
  • Love dictates, but a kiss writes the secrets of the heart. – Anonimo
  • Love, love, all the rest is nothing. – La Fontaine
  • Love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind… - William Shakespeare

Have a fantastic day filled with peace and joy!

Do you hear God? He has a Plan for your Life!

Did you know that the Lord of the Universe longs to communicate with you daily? How Jesus makes Himself known is a wonderful mystery.
Many times, I have heard Him speak in my ear and as well He has shown me signs of reassurance and love by presenting me with pleasing sights (signs) so that I know He has heard my requests and concerns.
The Lord’s love is great! He loves people more than anything!

Have you asked him to work in your life? Have you asked Him to make Himself known to you?
He will if you tell him you love Him and want to know more about Him.

Seek God’s direction at all times. He will reach out to you and lead, telling you what to do daily thus making a difference in your life and other’s lives in order to glorify His existence. He created you to have relationship with Him and wants so much to be a part of your life! He deserves every person’s praise and we should revere His existence as thanksgiving for His Love for all His acts of kindness, mercy and grace.
Be sure to read the Word of God that is presented in the Holy Bible! He has made sure that His commands for us are written there and remain in the world for all to read.
Here are a several verses that pertain to today’s post:
It is the Lord your God you must follow, and him you must revere. Keep his commands and obey him; serve him and hold fast to him. - Deuteronomy 13:4 - New International Version (NIV)

Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. - Deuteronomy 6:5 - New International Version (NIV)

37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’[a] 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’[b] 40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.” - Matthew 22:37-40 - New International Version (NIV)

Loving others means telling them about Jesus!
Jesus’ command to His Disciples:

18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” - Matthew 28:18-20 - New International Version (NIV)

Disciples should be all Christian believers who accept Christ as their Lord and Savior.
My church is participating in the Multiply Movement which is helping Christians become effective disciples.

Here is link to the movement -

Wishing you a marvelous day, full of the Lord’s love, guidance and peace!
