Loved

Linking up with Charlotte and Ginger at .....Spiritual Sunday

"Love recognizes no barriers. It jumps hurdles, leaps fences, penetrates walls to arrive at its destination full of hope"   Maya Angelou 

Feeling loved gives me courage.....it makes me strong. Real love....the kind that doesn't hold grudges or expectations....that forgives mistakes and misunderstandings.....that accepts me as I am and that goes the extra mile and even the extra extra mile. Love  - an incredible force that makes all the difference. 

It's what changed my life.....

His love....that cared so much...even when I resisted...
His love - patient, steady, present - that reached so far down to pull me out of darkness. 
His love that didn't look at what I was...but saw what I could be.....
His love....made the difference....cut through the hate...the anger...the hurt.
His love never gave up.....hung in with me....waited patiently until I was ready.....
His love....always present...and even still....never giving up....

I want my life to shine that kind of love to others....to be more like Him....in reaching out....shining hope...being a friend....

He accepts you at your worse.....He loves you just because.......

that kind of love is so rare in mortals. Striving to give it to others is a gift in itself.
