Lindy's Epiphany Thought

To be a bearer of love in the world carries as much risk as anything I can think of. It's so likely that it won't turn out like we want, possible that we will look like a failure even. But, if the love has been there, the intention good. Well, that's the thing I think. The love.

And the sharing and receiving. It's a triune thing I think. Well, when it works anyway.

Back to paving my own personal road to hell. Sorry I'm in a black hole today. How's Rowan the cutest dog?

Amen, Lindy! As I have noted elsewhere, I am not a gambler by nature--but what other choice do we have? The only way to get more love into the world is to give it ourselves. Risky? Yes. Painful? Often. Worth it? Absolutely!

PG--hope you get to feeling better...

Get well.

Funny - when I did "What Color is Your Parachute", what I do best came up as "love people". Soulmate - wonderful. Ordinary people - pretty easy. Special needs - not so easy after a while. Nagging godchildren - ugh.

Beautiful, LIndy. Thanks. God's Love for all: simple really. Some people get it, some people just seem to loathe it, especially here in the DoT. Also, I just read your kibitzer's remarks on the HOB/D...very well said. You're in my prayers with thanksgiving.

Well, Doxy, I was actually still talkig about the dog story that Ann told us. But, I think it's likely that I had your RISK post in mind as it made a big impressionon me. It resonated and left me, as a certian Mad Priest we both know would say, gobsmacked.
