it brings us together and makes us one.
Love calls us individually to relationship,
yet its very nature has no boundaries;
its desire is to be shared with others.
Love builds bridges,
bring what was once divided together.
Love flows from the heart...
this same love flows from each of us because God's Spirit of abundant love flows through our hearts. ~Henri Nouwen
“Teacher, which commandment in the law is the greatest?"
He said to him, "You shall love the Lord, your God, with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the greatest and the first commandment.
The second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” Matthew 22: 36-39
I once spoke with a woman who had not talked to her sister in over fifteen years. When I asked her what had happened to divide them, she said she really couldn't remember exactly, but words had been shared that caused hurt and the situation was never remedied.
I am sure you can think of a similar situation in your life. Would you like to change it, or at least, would you like to try?
