Yesterday evening Pog and I had a powerful moment of reflection.
At some point throughout the course of our day, each of us had felt angry about something unpleasant we found ourselves in the middle of unexpectedly, because we trust each other. During those points we each showed love and trust, supporting each other and pushing through until it was over. That night we each talked about it, reflecting on what had happened and laughing about how hilarious it all was in hindsight.
We easily grasped what could be done to keep that piece of historic comedy from repeating itself.
It didn’t matter what we were going through because love is always at the core. Whatever our individual situation is: Good, bad, great or ugly… We don’t curse, condemn, question, walk away from, or quit on love.
Love just is.
This morning, reading a daily motivating post from Pog, I realized why even a bad moment immediately turns great.
We are love-filled and that’s a hate-killer.
Hate and anger simply can’t live on love.
Love is untouchable.
Love is a shield that protects by smothering and starving everything not made of it.
“’Better is a dinner of herbs where love is, Than a fatted calf with hatred.’1
Our atmosphere consists of what we allow into it. Taking inventory of our atmosphere has to be an ongoing process since it also reflects the state of our spirit as well. A love-filled atmosphere enhances everything in it while one with hate erodes itself from within. We must continue to choose an atmosphere of love that flourishes over one of hate that decomposes. Our spirit will bloom or wither with our choice.
It’s all about faith…”
Let love work.
1 Proverbs 15:17 NKJV
Note: Pog is an acronym for the love of my life. He’s a Powerful Man Of G-d. The “M for man, as a symbol of the human stuff that gets in the way of true love is appropriately silent.
