|entering this in lucia's black & white love challenge.|
One of my favorite quotes/expressions about love is from the musical Les Miserables. (Are you surprised?)
to love another person is to see the face of God.
It's the last line of the musical, besides a reprise. God is love, friends. God is love.
You know that feeling when you have so much going on in your life that you just can't write? Or the feeling that you have so much going on but so little is happening? It's overwhelming, and yet it's stifling at the same time.
I'm learning to love hope. As in, love the hope that hope gives. Hope in hope. Cling to it. Lean on it. Hope in Jesus. I have this verse on the wall above my bed:
"Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer." Romans 12:12
I went on a scavenger hunt through the Bible and tried to find a gazillion verses on hope. That one stood out to me especially.
I have nothing coherent to say, except that I feel like I need an old-fashioned notebook and pen to write and write and write with abandon. The only problem is that I'm not quite sure what I want to write about.
I want to fly away. Or at least get away and read for a little bit. But my reading these days is limited to college textbooks and facebook statuses, both of which get rather old after awhile. I need me a good book. I need me time to read a good book. I need to read the good Book.
I must get time to think, but I must make sure not to over-think. There's such a fine balance between the two, you know?
Life can be a strange thing sometimes. Oh, it's beautiful, but man can it be strange.
