"Cause there's a possibility You'll look at me differently Love Ever since the first moment I spoke your name From then on I knew that by you being in my life Things were destined to change cause......
I love, love.
The craziness of it. The heart palpitations of it. The "you've upset me but let's get over it" of it. The can we cuddle longer of it. The "I need to check my chi" of it. The "do you miss me, love me still", of it? The "do you still find me attractive" of it. The "rub my back and I'll scratch yours" of it. The meeting of friends of it. The let's get between the sheets.......then fall asleep of it.
The I'm moving away pain of it. The fear of losing you of it. The why is he/she texting you so late of it. The I couldn't love you more of it. The we've been married 48 years and you still make me smile, of it. The young love in bloom, of it. The "you are so crazy, but I love you" of it. The "I love you so much to give you space" of it. The "you need time" of it. The "texting in the middle of the night, because I can't sleep" of it. The "I don't really know how to communicate with you, but I'm willing to learn" of it. The beautiful babies born of it. The "I must let you go of it, because I love me more", of it. The "what could I have done better" of it. The ups and downs, in between, ebb and flow of it.
It reminds me of God's love. Unconditional, unadulterated and irresistible love. The kind that hits you in your heart strings and makes you stop and think before you speak, act or feel.
God's love is so refreshing. That's why I love-love, because love in all its parts, makes us whole and brings us closer to God. (Creator, Allah, Krishna, Buddah, whomever)
Loving someone wholly gives us the opportunity to experience God in such a way, that stretches your growth and well-being.
Love is God in the tangible. All facets of God. The God we read about in the Old Testament-the resentful and jealous god and the god of the New Testament- offering grace and salvation. It's shows us how God loves every fiber of our being even when we are selfish, rude, unkind, aren't as compassionate as we should be. When we don't listen to our spirits and go against the grain. Or we do something that not only disappoints and harms us but others too, but I love you still! That love, is never failing and never ending.
Love will pull you in places that are inconceivable. Love will give you the highest high and make you feel some of the lowest lows. But, Love is forgiving. Because forgiving is not for them.. it's for you. Love is understanding-that you are and will get on my nerves sometimes. Love is holding your hand through our darkest hours because God is holding mine. Love is knowing that in spite of.. we are! We are beautiful, beings of God's infinite light. It's knowing that true healing, comes from love.
God enjoys people being in love. Love that is unshakable. Love that can see the test ahead and make a strategy. Love that will do everything possible in its power to flourish. Love that knows when it's time to get up from the table because it's no longer being served-because that's self-love.
Love is... anything and everything we conceive it to be...and nothing... can separate us from that kind of love. God's love-unconditional. And I won't be afraid to ask for it! Because I'm worthy of this kind of love. You are worthy of this kind of love. We are worthy of it!
It may sound like a fantasy, but I know this love exists. I experience it everyday with my children.
Be the light. Spread the light. Live in the light.
