Day 5: Love never Dies


TIME moves forward

one tick at a TIME

You can't stop it.

Just look into the eyes of a newborn

and you can see yourself

as that is what you were

once upon a TIME ago.

I see TIME.

As I still feel like a 12 year old,

I see the forward motion of

TIME

as my years are way past 12.

TIME changes,

but there is a constant that

never changes.

LOVE.

TIME may steal away TIME,

but it can't steal away LOVE.

I think of my grandmother,

through my eyes when I was a child

who I always saw her as "old",

yet she was probably the age that I am today.

But TIME never got the best of her

as she would just sit and watch

and absorb our family doing life.

She was oh so content just being in the moment

that you could feel her

PEACE,

because it was smothered in LOVE.

I wonder what she was thinking.

I wonder if she was missing my grandfather

who passed away when I was 4,

who I remember oh so well.

I wonder if she looked at my mother

and wondered how TIME had ticked by.,

now her daughter was a mother.

We can't stop TIME.

But TIME can't stop LOVE.

Don't ever allow anything to come between

LOVE.

GOD didn't allow an apple to come between

HIS LOVE for HIS CHILDREN.

For GOD so LOVED,

as TIME ticked by,

as HE created more children,

that take up the pages of the bible

(and in the pages of our stories),

who may not have been eating apples,

yet chose to eat other things that they weren't supposed to eat.

Yet GOD kept LOVING

to a point of death on a CROSS.

LOVE begins with GOD.

For where would you be without GOD?

You wouldn't be here.

I am just feeling sentimental this morning.

How are you this morning?

What are you feeling?

Is there someone who you are thinking about?

Is there someone who you want to reach out to say I LOVE you, yet it has been way too long?

Is there someone who you need to FORGIVE, yet you just can't let them off the hook because

your hurt is so deep?

Is there someone who you know who is all alone who needs a wee bit of LOVE?

Is the someone you?

Today is your day.

To take that extra step

and FAST from whatever is keeping you from

sharing HIS LOVE

with that one someone or someones.

Whether it is

FASTING from UNFORGIVENESS,

so you will FORGIVE.

Whether it is

FASTING from PRIDE,

so you can make that phone call, or a visit, or even a text.

Whether it is

FASTING from the

FEAR to RECEIVE the LOVE OF GOD

that never dies,

so that you can spread the

LOVE OF GOD

to others who may be dying inside

because they need the

LOVE OF GOD.

Maybe today is

SENTIMENTAL SUNDAY.

Therefore,

let's make it a SUNDAY that

you won't ever forget

because GOD will use you

to take that step

that brings

LOVE into this TIME right now

because

TIME doesn't stop for anyone,

BUT LOVE takes the TIME to stop for someone.

Therefore,

take the TIME today to

LOVE

with HIS TIMELESS LOVE

that is all around us

for us to see, to feel, to receive, and to give,

if we would take the TIME

to embrace

the

"GIFTS OF GOD"
