Why Do You Love Me?!

love2

Why do you love him/her? Why did you love him/her?  These are questions I would ask you if you are so mad (at a loved one)  you can’t get past it.

When you find yourself disappointed,angry, or frustrated with a loved one, why not take a moment and get “in touch” with the reason you loved them in the first place. Get still……make a conscious effort to feel the reason you love them and then make a choice to let it go and accept them for who they are; the person you loved before this thing happened. That does not mean you have to accept all the things they do which may hurt themselves or others; it just means you are going to love them no matter what and let them take care of their own life.

I had a person once ask me “so what if I only love them because they are family and if they were not I wouldn’t have anything to do with them?”
So what of family? What if that is the basic reason you love them? Then continue to love them because they are family….I am assuming your love comes out of a familial love, one that’s made strong by the love of many in the family and your continuing to love and support family (versus NOT) probably makes many people feel loved and happy.

Of course this may only work (or at least be easier to do) if you care about others, if you are a person who chooses peace over drama, love over revenge or anger.  So why do you love him/her?

 

Just my rambling thought for the morning…take it or leave it, read it or not!
Love you all! ❤

Life…IS…about…..LOVE!   Live it now….give it freely….it is ALL that matters in the end.

Matthew 22:36-40 Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”

 

 

Revenge!

poison

Revenge,Anger,Grudges,UNForgiveness…..

What do these things have in common?  Well I like to refer to the quote above by Buddha (and I often do) when I say that these emotions ravage your body the same as if you drank poison and expected the other person to die!  They ravage your heart, your soul, your mind, they do nothing in comparison ( if anything at all) to the other person!!

So why do we do this to ourselves?! God does not want us to ravage our bodies with the likes of anger,revenge,grudges,mean-spirited actions or words, UNForgiveness, etc…..

What can we do to stop? I start with prayer. Prayer for the other person. Praying for those who have transgressed against us opens a window for God to work His miracles! And sometimes….Oh MY do we need a miracle to get over things!

It can be a simple prayer…..

“Today I want to pray for those who have hurt me! Please be with them today and everyday.”

Crack that window!
