Love me!

I was laying in bed, remembering days gone by. Lost hopes. Dreams dashed. Yearnings unfulfilled. I was laying in the tangles of my memories. I heard the pitiful voice echoing in the basement of my dungeon ‘what about me?’

And trite as it sounds, I heard ‘Love your neighbour as yourself. Jesus didn’t say, be loved, have your dreams fulfilled.’

In the blink of an eye, the moment transformed from the pitiful wail of a petulant ego, to the embracing of love. Love right now. Love what you’ve got. Love your neighbour, as you want to be loved. Imagine if we did that! Then not one of us would yearn for love.

Be the change you want to see.

Yes, this injunction to love your neighbor as yourself is an uplifting & necessary reminder. I do meditate upon this myself, sometimes. Thanks Tiffany!

You're very welcome Brian. Somebody told me last week they were having problems understanding their friend and again, Jesus didn't say anything about 'understand'. Love will be enough.
Thanks for stopping in Brian.
