Give love

XXXVI

BY MICHAEL FIELD

Yea, gold is son of Zeus: no rust
    Its timeless light can stain;
The worm that brings man’s flesh to dust
    Assaults its strength in vain:
More gold than gold the love I sing,
A hard, inviolable thing.
Men say the passions should grow old
     With waning years; my heart
Is incorruptible as gold,
     ‘Tis my immortal part:
Nor is there any god can lay
On love the finger of decay.*
*My son picked this poem for his class project. The more we read it, the more we find in it.

Love is immortal. It overcomes all. Give it.

Let someone in.

Let someone in.

The hunger for love is much more difficult to remove than the hunger for bread.

~Mother Teresa quotes on love

Feed it.

My heart

15 year ago today I married my best friend. I think I prayed for him so much his soul had to come find me. When he was ready and I was ready. The rest, as they say, is history.

He is my confidant, my companion, my comforter, my sanity, my anchor. He is an example of selflessness, a model of good style, and a light in my life. I try to practice what I preach and never hesitate to tell him how I feel. He does the same.

We are not perfect, but we try not to let fear get in the way of our connection.We work hard at it, but our willingness makes it easier to keep giving.

 

 

Join One Billion Rising today to stand up against violence towards women. Who is rising?

What are you willing to give?

That’s a beautiful picture of both of you Jodi!

Wishing you and your better half a very Happy Valentine’s Day & God bless. Nice to know that you find your best friend in your husband just as I do, which I guess leaves us hardly any time for making other friends.:)

Thanks for sharing. 🙂
