Love Actually: Day 10

Love Actually: Day 10

Saturday’s post, a little shorter and today, a great quote. I like this image. We are warriors for the King:

”My prayer is not the whimpering of a beggar nor a confession of love. Nor is it the trivial reckoning of a small tradesman: Give  me and I shall give you.

My prayer is the report of a soldier to his general: This is how I did today, this is how I fought to save the entire battle in my sector, these are the obstacles I found, this is how I plan to fight tomorrow.

My God and I are horseman, galloping in the burning sun or under drizzling rain. Pale, starving, but unsubdued, we ride and converse.

”Leader,” I cry. He turns His face toward me, and I shudder to confront his anguish.

Our love for each other is rough and ready, we sit at the same table, we drink the same ale at this low tavern of life.”

Nikos Kanzantzakis

Love Selectively?

Love Selectively?

I am surprised by the things that surprise me lately. Many months of semi-separation and isolation, a whole week of near snowbound, a winter’s worth of cabin fever, and Doris has finally gone over the edge. Now, you know she is one of the sweetest, kindest, most loving people on the planet. Anyone would say,… Continue Reading
