1.    It’s super important to talk about your deepest emotions with those you love. Intimate relationships require the risk of the deep sharing of thoughts and feelings and dreams and fears. 

2. It’s not my job to fix other people’s inner world and “fixing” often doesn’t feel like love to those we try to fix.

1.     1.   Said “Nana” for the first time.

2.      2.  Ran to me with her arms stretched wide open for me.

3.      3.  Kissed me.

4.      4. Squealed with delight because she was going to stay all night with me.

5.      5. Slept on my shoulder as I sang to her and rocked her in my arms.

Keep Bleeding Love

Posted by: | Comments (0)

 “You cut me open and I keep, keep bleeding love.”

 Leona Lewis’s recording gave voice to strong sentiment for millions.

“Closed off from love, I didn’t need the pain.
Once or twice was enough, and it was all in vain.
Time starts to pass; before you know it you’re frozen.”

 Leona sings of how she’d cut her heart off from love after being hurt and disappointed in her relationships. As her story continues, she speaks of finding a new love and the risk of becoming vulnerable again.

“But nothing’s greater than the risk that comes with your embrace.
And in this world of loneliness, I see your face.”

Yet the lyrics hint of an unhealthiness in the new relationship. Friends warn her that she’s crazy. She tries to cut off the vein of her love, but yet she keeps bleeding love.

Can You Remember Your First Love?

Posted by: | Comments (1)

first love (2) Ah, the first love. The one who first consumed our hearts, our thoughts, our dreams. What do you remember about that one? Often thoughts of first love are mixtures of happy thoughts of hopes and dreams and painful memories of crushed hearts. Later we may wonder if it was really love at all because we more clearly identify the blind desires with which we embraced another in immaturity. Yet there is a reality of a first love that is true.

The apostle John wrote to the church of Ephesus to remind them of their first love experiences with God. He spoke these painful words to them, “…you have left your first love. Remember therefore from where you have fallen…” (Rev. 2:4-5).

Who Will Love Me for Me?

Posted by: | Comments (2)

Tears filled her eyes as the words formed on her quivering lips, “No one loves me for me.”

The unasked question that haunted this woman is the same one that every human asks, “Who will love me for me?”  The words of J.J. Heller expresses this longing in all our hearts:

We are made for love, both God’s love and the love of others; yet, we all at times, find ourselves feeling empty, feeling unloved.

There is no more powerful force than unconditional love. It has the power to transform the heart of the most hardened criminal and the hardest part of my heart and your heart for none of us are that different from each other. Our hearts all need healing, and we all long for the unconditional love of another.
