Scrolling through my Facebook memories this morning, I came upon the quote below that I wrote on this date in 2010. The older I get, the more I realize that true, healing, all-encompassing, unconditional love is a gift. What you do with it is up to you. But if you never give it to someone, you’ll never receive it either. Love heals, restores, refreshes, rejuvenates, and inspires.
“Love is not just a mushy feeling you have for someone.Love is a decision.You decide whether to let someone in and just how much of your heart to give. Love is also a gift of God. His gift to one may be that He wrote your name all over their heart and soul. His gift to you may be that this person loves you unconditionally. It’s up to you whether you accept God’s gift or not.~Red (Michelle A. Farley)
