Love never Dies


They are here.

My daughter.

Our Son-in-love

Our grandson.

Our granddaughter.

And our not "yet born yet" new grand~baby,

Life is right before me.

REAL LIFE.

I see TIME.

As I still feel like a 12 year old,

I try to absorb my 61 years

as I try to absorb seeing our first born

with a family of her own,

yet I still see that little girl

who GOD blessed us with almost 38 years ago.

How can it be?

What has changed?

Just TIME.

But LOVE remains.

TIME may steal away TIME,

but it can't steal away LOVE.

I think of my grandmother,

through my eyes as a child

who 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.

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.

HE so LOVED

even 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 just the TIME

to embrace

the

"GIFTS OF GOD" (listen to the song below)
