Can you have conditional love that is real love. I don’t think so. I found this quote from Thomas Merton ,,,this says a lot about real love. Think about it,,,, I know I am ???
“The beginning of love is the will to let those we love be perfectly themselves, the resolution not to twist them to fit our own image. If in loving them we do not love what they are, but only their potential likeness to ourselves, then we do not love them: we only love the reflection of ourselves we find in them.”
“the reflection of ourselves we find in them” Is that love,,,, no ,,, that is us trying to glorify ourselves through someone else and calling it love for them !!!
Real True Love is Freedom for both of you. You want them to excel at whatever they choose. You want them to soar like an Eagle !!! Love is not here today,, gone tomorrow and back the next day !!! You love them through their mistakes as they love you through yours !! After all, there has only been one perfect person on this earth,, Jesus Christ and he will show anyone who comes to him truely , forgiving, unconditional love. He will let you soar with Eagles and guide you through any of life’s storms!!
He has certainly taken care of me through all my storms,,, storms that I brought on myself, due to the ” I can do it myself ,,, better and I don’t want to wait” )
Accept him and prepare yourself to soar ,,,, while the world around you is crashing and burning !!!
God Bless You and all that You can be with Jesus by your side !!!
