What would I say? It sometimes seems an elusive thing, yet still I know love is all around me. We are all yearning for greater experiences with tangible love, and mostly we look in just a certain direction for it. I too wait for intimacy and friendship where life's joys and pains are shared with someone specifically meant for me, but until that comes along I am willed to look everywhere for love. Just to get enough daily dose of love to keep alive, I search for it...
It's in the sunlight through the trees, the smile of a strangers toddler at the grocery store, the perfect petals of a flower, and the laugh of a friend, in the smile lines around my mothers eyes, the delighted squeal of my nephews or niece, in the sound of crashing ocean waves, or the gentle rocking of a hammock nap, it's every song of worship and praise, and in the breath it takes to whisper His name, its the quietness that surrounds me in the morning, and the promises of scripture, it's a deep-life-altering awareness of being adopted into the Kingdom of Heaven, and the freedom, and the joy, and the hope...
I have love.
I am loved.
I'm in love and love is in me.
Love is good and I'm so grateful for eyes that recognize it's form.
I'm overcome by it and transformed by it.
I have more than seems fair.
I can't hold it inside.
God, show me how to better give love.
