Over and over again, daily, for a lifetime.
This morning, I woke up in a great mood, feeling loved and cherished and contented. And I feel like a river of love sharing my joy with everyone around me, but especially my own sweetheart.
I have to say, I'm discovering that there is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to matters of the heart. God's love operates differently in each one of us. And when it comes to relationships, the love we share ought to be like His. It doesn't have to always be carnal, physical or sexual. Sometimes, it is in the quiet fellowship of suffering, in the stillness of knowing, or in the surety of presence. Just being there, witnessing life and staying truly tuned in to another person is not easy, but that is love. And oh how sweet the reward. You may cry sometimes but the joyous moments are always worth it.
I fell in love again today, not just with my sweetheart, but with my Father. I love God because there is no way to love anything or anyone else without being loved by Him first and loving Him in return. It creates a love movement and I'm caught up in it right now. I know that I won't always feel this high in Him, but I do right now and I'm going to enjoy every moment of it.
