Spiritual Sunday "Love"

Thanks Charlotte and Ginger for always being here hosting these great Spiritual Sunday

"You can't touch love, but you can feel the sweetness that it
      pours into everything." Annie Sullivan


When someone told me they loved me...I didn't know what they meant. I couldn't feel what they were saying. And I didn't know how to respond. 

But when He showed me love....somehow His love cut through when nothing else could. I felt it. And I couldn't help but be drawn by it.

Love reached so far down into darkness.....and then waited.  No matter what I did...how much I fought against it.....or tried to push it away.....Love stayed....and made a difference.  

Happy Valentines guys!  

You surround me...the whisper calling my name...Love eternal reaching to me

I once thought of God as someone sitting on His throne waiting for me to make a mistake so He could punish me. But now I'm thankful to know I was mistaken. His love has no boudaries - His love gave us His Son. His Son loved us enough to die for us...there is no greater love.

Blessings,
Joan

His love is of such a different nature, isn't it? I've noticed that too. Yet the more I soak it in, the more I'm able to receive the love of those around me. Thanks, Sarah, for being a blessing again with your words.
