It is indeed a sure fact that love covers a multitude of sin.

Take for instance a child caught out red handed committing a transgression – the parent’s love for that child doesn’t condemn him forever! Yes, he may get a good hiding or scolding, but in the end … love comes through and covers up all harsh words, and even red backsides!

And, the child answers that love by forgiving so readily!

Have you noticed how easy a child forgives? Oh, that we may all become like little children again!

For the child who grows up in a stable home and in a healthy family, it is so much easier to go through life in one piece. That child absorbs the loving relationship between his parents day after day, and it fills him with a confidence that they love him also. This inspires him to go out into the world and give love to others.

On the other hand, children often attract guilt upon themselves when parents have a stressful relationship. A parent therefore has such a tremendous responsibility to give that child peace of mind, by working progressively towards a peaceful and healthy relationship between father and mother, and creating a safe and warm environment for the child to develop in.

This pattern in the home creates the blueprint for the child that he “files” in his subconscious mind and he will implement it the moment he grows up and finds himself with the same responsibilities of marriage and family life.

John 13:35 “35 By this shall all [men] know that you are My disciples, if you love one another [if you keep on showing love among yourselves].”

Love is a command from the Lord. Love features our identity as followers of Messiah. Love binds us together as ONE Holy Nation, set apart unto the LORD!

If we love one another as the Word teaches us, the world will see it, the world will get hungry and thirsty for it … the world will come knocking at our door to get touched by it.

Why is that? What is captivating them? Love is the pure manifestation of Messiah within us, and by shedding our love a broad, the world will know that we belong to Him.

Trying to create these tunes,
the words stuck into my brain,
So much so that the rhyme just doesn’t seem to fit but the words hit my soul so hard,
I can barely hold the tears back.
I try to memorize the beat but my emotions take charge.
I am enamoured by the beauty, the wonders, and the glamour that this new adventure brings me.
I hope I can try and turn the bend.
I hope I can make sense of that which is going on in my heart.
Darling, my world is made much more beautiful with you in it.
And this pursuit is definitely worth the while.

Memorize, enamoured, rhyme

Here is my quote;

“You’ve gotta dance like there’s nobody watching,
Love like you’ll never be hurt,
Sing like there’s nobody listening,
And live like it’s heaven on earth.”
William W. Purkey

Life lived with less ridgidity is a life well lived. My darling, allow you to live for today; enjoy all that the Lord has bestowed on you. It will make paddling through the muddy waters easier and life will have less regrets and outpouring joys and triumphs.
