Because There Is Love
And I get overcome by the beautiful sadness of how we humans exist — wanting love but going about it all completely wrong.[via VanderMeander]
So, this year I want to love better. I want to love in spite of weakness. In spite of my own weaknesses that make me unlovable. In spite of the weakness which makes me not want to love when it’s hard and when it’s easier (and feels so much better) to be angry. In spite of the weaknesses and failings of others. I want to have grace for others, and to do that I need to have grace for myself....
It makes all of the weakness beside the point, because there is love. And as I experience my weaknesses and failings in a deeper way, I come to experience love more fully. And that is good. So very good.
