Did you know that the love of God doesn’t wax and wane based on our
ability to be "righteous"? Did you know that although we were made to
please God, His love doesn’t stop when we don’t please Him? He could
not love us any more than He does, lest He stop loving Himself. You
see, love was not meant to be selfless, it was meant to be unselfish.
Selfless is not the opposite of selfish. We were never meant to be selfless. "You shall love your
neighbor as yourself." If I did not love myself, how could I know how

The payment that He made for us was to be separated from His Father so
that we would never have to know that separation. If we accept His love
and do NOT TRY TO EARN IT, then nothing shall ever ever ever separate
us from the Love of God. NOTHING. EVER.

connects. One word to another… one thought to another… heart to
heart… body, soul, spirit… connect. Our spirits touch.. Our souls
mingle… We can receive the energy when we need it, for it is freely
given… we give energy back when we have it, and it is gratefully
received. Those we touch remain touched. What was shared cannot be
unshared even though we may try to close it off.
walk backwards, even if we try. It is a forward journey, and an
adventure it is. How will you see it? I want to wake up every morning
to the adventure. To embrace it. Yes, some days just plain suck, but
life is good, and it goes on. You have seen the stickers, "Shit
