Good Morning! A thought for us to ponder.
Lloyd Weber wrote a very popular song. Love Changes Everything.
Is this TRUTH?
Lets not look here at a ‘soppy’ feel good emotion but something that like a swamping surging tide of massive ‘wanting the best’ for another sweeps all before it and becomes a life impacting and changing revelation.
Human Love is capable of this. Yes – it can be! But, this love needs to be nurtured and maintained- ever imperfect but possible to change and evolve.
DIVINE LOVE – ABSOLUTELY! Without question.
Its revelation changed and will forever change life and EVERYTHING on that Path of Life.
Late have I loved YOU, O beauty so ancient and so new.Late have I loved YOU! You were within me while I have gone outside – everywhere- to seek You. Unlovely myself, I rushed always to all those lovely things provided and those things You had made. And always You were with me.
Very late in his life, Augustine found Divine Love.
In this life and circumstances it did indeed change EVERYTHING.
(Thousands, upon thousands, indeed millions of people have discovered the same). There is a LOVE which changes

Have a brilliant day! Love the folks around you.
I m a wife, mother and grandmother. I have always enjoyed writing even from an early age. My book Beyond the Ashes has been written as a labour of love. All the characters are real to me and their story needed to be told. As a Christian my desire is to write General Fiction stories about real people but Hope and a desire for 'better' will always be part of the journey. I have had several short stories published over the years and moderate success in writing competitions.
I realized as I was thinking today (30/01/15) that perhaps I should add here that I have had life experiences of many valley times but also many mountain top experiences. I can understand and be beside anyone who finds their life in tatters because I have 'been' there. Of course as I have got older as well there have been the added sorrows of losing not only older family members but also one by one finding the dearest of friends and the ones of greatest support and care also dying. On the site of rich mountains has been my certainty of the value of marriage and how grateful I am that after loss and sadness I made a happy and long-lasting marriage commitment. The one who was my best friend back then is still my best friend 45 years later. Beyond the Ashes touches upon the POWER of LOVE when folk can forget about their own personal 'feelings' and reach out in LOVE to a desperate and broken person.

I love the Augustine quote. It is true that so many try to find love outside themselves, when LOVE is just waiting to be invited in.
Live that you might love. Love that you might live. “Brilliant” post! Hugs & thank you!,
