Sunday 8/30/09 - "LOVE IS..."


"LOVE IS..."

Love is.....

catching the one you've been after long enough to place a kiss.

opening your life and making enough room for brand new members of Alcoholics Anonymous, of Al-Anon who are looking for help, looking for truth, looking for some hope, searching for health, searching for God (whether they know it or not).

sharing your life with the vulnerable of this world - babies, the young, the elderly, animals, the injured, the ill, the disabled, those who are hurting.

demonstrating love through loving actions.

spending time with those you love.

taking the time to pray for those in need of prayer. Taking the time to place their names in the book that will be taken to the altar during mass.

getting on your knees and asking for God's guidance each day, asking God's protection for those you love, and bringing people by name into God's presence in prayer.

caring about people you have come to know through the writing of blogs though you've never met them face to face.

being willing to do God's will.

'letting go' of someone when it is in the interest of their spiritual growth.

detaching (with love) when necessary.

being appreciative of and using all of God's gifts and graces.

God's gift of the 12 steps.

Wonderful stuff Anna. You express so many things that make love special. It is a hard thing to define but you did a great job here.
