Bring Love Into our Homes – by Mother Teresa……

Image result for images of mother teresa

It is so easy to love

The people from a great distance

Who we hardly meet once in a way

But it is not always difficult

to love those close to us

whose love is ever so dear

calling us to be near and not fear

It is easier to give a cup of rice

to relieve hunger that eats you up

Or clothes that lie wasted

To the needy who wants them most

Than to let go the loneliness and pain

Of someone detested in our own homes

Bring love and cheerfulness into your home

For this is where our love

For each other must begin

And that is only in our Hearts

That is home to all of us……….

    1. Yes dear Kate I truly agree with your words. So many times all this happens in a family and no one comes to know about it. I too was moved by this beautiful poem by Mother and wanted to share with all you’ll. Hope we could atleast be like her. Thanks so much.

  1. Wonderful, amazing, and convicting. Do you know that Mother Teresa is one of my heroes? I fell in love with her when I was just a boy. I wept when she died, yet rejoiced in the legacy she left behind, as well as knowing that she was at peace in heaven. Looking at the image above brought tears to my eyes … again. Thank you so much for sharing this. I just now shared this with my dear sister, Ann.

    1. Thank you so much dear Jonathan for your kind words and yes she sure was an epitome of Love and Compassion to each and every deprived soul. Do you know that God too has said that you must have the Love like St. Francis of Assisi and Mother Teresa to know who I really am. Such a great lady she was. In Calcutta, India she has done a marvelous job with the deprived sector of society. I had a friend, Jonathan who was a air steward and he had met her once on the plane. He approached her and said Mother you are an amazing person tell me how do I help these people the way you do. She simply said when you get down from the plane the first beggar you see on the road will you take him or her to your house and give him clothe and shelter. She saw Jesus in every living being. Great you did that, please share with as many people you can.

      1. Ah, yes, you are so very right! Jesus told his followers one time, “They will know you by the love you share.” So very true. Both St. Francis of Assisi and Mother Teresa showed that love, and they shined. And so may we/I shine as brightly, too! And I most certainly will share these wonderful words with captivating, moving photo

  3. Thank you for this post, Kamal! I agree with you that it’s hard to love in a practical way for people far away. But for our family, friends, neighbors, or even strangers close by, it’s a matter of landing our hands, We have no excuse for not doing it.

  4. This is very beautiful. It’s hard to blend the right amount of attention and love at home and to into others outside. You point out how important it is to start this at home. I’m realizing lately how the opposite can be true too. That for some it’s much harder to give to those we don’t know. I’m guilty of this, but agree very much with your words that love and giving in your fam starts first.

    1. I completely agree with you and we are mostly like that we hardly start loving our family first instead we go out and show our love for others which is not bad at all but as Mother Teresa says everything starts with our family. She was an awesome woman. Thank you so much dear for your valuable feedback.

  5. An extremely power poem. It is easier to love the distant ones more sometimes.

    Generosity, compassion and humanity are such important qualities ,behaviours and characteristic we should create and demonstrate each and every day to those near or far.

    Beautiful poem.

  6. My dear Kamal,

    Mother Teresa has seen a lot of suffering in her country and has made deep experiences with people and advises us to love one another. However, the reality is often different and bitter when even own brothers and sisters in the same family build up hate and misunderstanding between each other. So we really have to exinguish the fire in us before we can help others – this requires disciplin and achieving peace and balance in ourselves. With the knowledge that we are all one and that God is living in each heart, in the life impuslse of all creatures – we can start loving God in man (not necessarily mind in man) – this will provide respect to one another.

    Thank you so much, my friend πŸ™‚
    Hugs and love
