TRUE LOVE TUESDAY: DEEPER

There is more to me than what's on the surface. That's true for everyone. We are not the superficial. We are not our clothes, our hair, our education, our home, our cars. If we are willing to dig deeper, who we really are will emerge. If we are looking for love or better still open to love then we have to be willing to go deeper.

Love is not simply flowers and cards. Love is extending yourself to another. It is not ONLY sex, or kissing, or touching. All nice and very much appreciated. Love is deeper. You cannot get there from shallow ground. Love requires each of US to go deeper in our selves and for others.

We can all love folks when times are great, when nothing is asked of our hearts. It requires a deeper commitment to love one another in the midst of hard times...when we are not our very best, when our flaws are showing, when we are at our weakest and lowest.

I am challenging myself to dig deeper, to discern further, my commitment to love and loveships.

I think you hit the nail on the head when you talked about how love is tested during hard times. That's truth right there, for real.

What a challenge! GO BABZ!

Hey, I just subscribed to your blog. Plan to read some posts from my phone while I'm on the train. You might just get me fired up enough to start posting again!

I love your post..they are good for a little self-help throughout the day... you are right "still open to love" because I don't think I am...not at this moment!

Go B.

Nikki,
It is a very had task. It requires being ever mindful of your life and your feelings. I have to learn that.

LadyLee,
You know it is all about self discovery for me. And it ain't always pretty...LOL!

Blackscribe,
Welcome!
Read whatever you like, comment as you feel. And I do hope you are inspired to tend to your blog! *smile*

AGB,
Ther are days when nobody is feeling LOVE. But like any muscle, we must train it and work it.
Love waits on welcome.

amen. i'm right there with you (and nikki), and alothough i am far from superficial, i find that, for me, it's hard to allow those to see me not at my best, while i'm still loving them through their tough spots. part of my (our) wonderful journey...

love you.
