Currie's Gratitude 20 November 2013

Love does not begin and end the way we seem to think it does. Love is a battle, love is a war; love is a growing up.  [James A. Baldwin]

This might sound a little harsh. Or negative. Or simply wrong. However, if you take a little slip of time to ponder it, as Love has and does Today apply in your own Life and World, you, too, might let yourself open up to the Hope that is in Baldwin’s words.

I have been noticing something I never saw about Love. I see it in flashes. I only glimpse it. And sometimes it comes wrapped inside one of those dreams that wakes me up wanting only to go back into sleep and find it again.

The way to love anything is to realize that it may be lost. [Gilbert K. Chesterton]

I seem to BE coming at things sideways or backwards this morning. It’s NOT so much a problem as it is a curiosity though. To me anyway…

I’ve always struggled with Love. And I imagine it might say the same about Me. Lately I am BEing shown things in a new Light. I’m understanding what I never could even wrap my head or heart round BEfore.

Love is NOT so splendored a thing. But it’s Very Good.

I love you, Currie

I was remembering Our Town, the play. Love is all those things you mentioned, but it is the regular old ordinary days I will probably miss the most. :)
