Ephesians 1

I kneel before the Father... and pray to know the width, length, height and depth of the LOVE of Christ... Amen

I'm such a sucker for anything When-Harry-Met-Sally-esque

"You wear white, and I'll wear out the words 'I love you'"

...live in love...

if i could sum up my life on any given day, "it's like showing up to work with shiny lip gloss, perfectly placed messy pony tail, new top, j.crew skirt, flats-or cowgirl boots-and a rip down to the back of my knee in my tights..."

yep, that does it many a day...

for those days, there are three chords and the truth otherwise known as country music...

C.S. Lewis, you pierce my heart...

It costs God nothing, as far as we know, to create nice things: but to convert rebellious wills, cost him crucifixion. -c.s. lewis

The "F" Bomb

Mind out of the gutter-the other F bomb.
So here's the deal about "forever." It is the one word that simply put means the day after tomorrow and the day after that and the day after that and the day after that, etc etc etc. You get the picture. I made the point.
So when you're with someone, you eventually-hopefully sooner rather than later-but who am I to judge-come to the ultimate question:
Many would lead you to believe that is, "do I love (insert name)?"
But I think the ultimate question is, "do I want to spend the day after tomorrow and the day after that and the day after that and the day after that, etc etc etc, with (insert name)?"
Because love, as much as it is the ultimate compromise between emotion and game-time decisions, is more intangible. Because we desperately believe in its ideals, truths and infectious butterflies, we conveniently and flirtatiously forget if it's lost or missed.
But forever. Now, we know exactly when something is not forever. Nap times in Mrs. Williams' first-grade class were not forever. Running the mile in middle school was not forever though it felt like an Iron Man bc Pizitz Middle School was surrounded by torturous smelling Bradford Pear Trees and strategically built on a hill for the sun god to beat us all with hot, sweaty sticks.
Love conquers all.
But there is only one forever...
And we're not there with the Author, Writer and Maker of Forever.
So therein lies the dilemma...
Grace be active. Patience be outstanding. Wisdom be obvious. Boldness be encouraging.
Love be genuine.
Forever be near.
Sooner rather than later.
