The Ways of Love

love

My friends, how desperately do we need to be loved and to love.

When Christ said that  man does not live by bread alone, he spoke of a hunger.

This hunger was  not the  hunger of the body. It was not the hunger for bread.

He spoke of a hunger that began deep down in the very depths of our being.

He spoke of a need as vital as breath. He spoke of our hunger for love.

       Love is something you and I must have. We must have it because our spirit

feeds upon it. We must have it because without it we become weak and faint.

Without love our self-esteem weakens. Without it our courage fails. Without

love we can no longer look out confidently at the world. We turn inward and begin

to feed upon our own personalities, and little by little we destroy ourselves.

       With it we are creative. With it we march tirelessly. With it, and with it alone,

we are able to sacrifice for others.

  1. Good morning, my friend: Such profound words you’ve written here…it is the truth of my heart..what I believe more than any one other thing….that the hunger which Jesus spoke of is the very thing we need..the one thing we cannot survive without..love..the compassion to see, hear, feel another’s heart…their joy, their pain, their hurts. their desires for life..and for them to know, hear and feel ours…Christmas, more than any other time of year, embraces and embodies this love..that is what I see in it…the same love that began this celebration so long ago, lives on in us, if we let it…it started with a child, who’s love…who’s life, changed us all….many blessing at this Christmastide to you, Eddie, and to those that love you and celebrate with you..love, Cathy.

    • It beats in the heart of all nature just as it beats in the hearts of humankind. Love is what makes and keeps
      the world going round. Your kindness and love have been with me from the beginning Cathy. For this I am eternally
      blessed and grateful. Thank you for your support through the difficult times and cheers through the good ones.
      with love, Eddie
