love says

Nov 20, 2010

The other day at Liberty Girls, Liz shared this quote with the girls during our discussion of Pollyanna. It stopped me for a few moments and really made me think. I have continued to ponder it as I consider the state of my heart, the nature of my service, and the look in my eyes.

Perhaps it will touch you as well?

Duty says,
“I have done all that is required of me.”

Love asks,
“What more can I do?”

Often times I do my duty. I want to do more. Be more. I want to be love.

    I was just thinking about how hard it is to love some people. Thanks for putting this on your blog….now, how to actually do it? It seems an eternal process, especially when I feel so justified not loving some people. UGh!
