Love is open, like the soft delicate rose petals that stretch wide to accept drops of rain
The life-giving water healing the pain
Love soaks up the soul food that grows and fills, touching others sweetly
Love is shared in a moment
She hums, you sing
In sync, not symmetric
Not the same, but linked
In a nameless way
Introduced by Him
For an untold purpose
Wrapped in a love-dress
Clothed from head to toe
In His sparkles
For His glory
With His written story
Of you and the other
Could be your mother,
Your friend, brother,
Your significant other
Just so as your heart opens
To believe and receive
Be a friend who stands tall, reaching to help when your friend falls
Be the lover who is loyal, seeking the One and keeping the one He chose
Be the parent who sings silly songs, teaches choice with care, and always points to Jesus in spite of earthly fanfare
Be vs. Do
Pray vs. Plan
Humble vs. Pride
Be close, be you, be present
Love is quiet
It takes time to hear it
Pay attention or you will miss out
This slice of Heaven in our hearts …
For that is what this life is all about.
Dear Friends, I have been meditating on love, just love in all its ways. I believe wholeheartedly in embracing one’s whole self and allowing love in from every direction. As we fill, we can give this precious gift to bless others, to stand with them, to bind closer yet.
Mother’s Day is hard for me.
Is it hard for you?
Loving myself and others is still hard, an effort, not seamless, but it is soooooo worth it.
For the first time, I will post a picture of me and my mom with words for Mother’s Day. Praying for words to help others.
Stay connected for that post and others:
