" Love Is My Heart Racing Just For You "



Love is giving your all

In each and every situation and circumstance

Not stopping to count

The cost or price to yourself

Being prepared to sacrifice

Over and over again

Remembering always

That feelings are all important

And that we must never ever

Break another heart intentionally

Or wound and injure an innocent soul

For our own selfish reasons

Observe the red grouse

That sits protectively on her brood

In the midst of a forest fire

That is perfect love

And the cornered fox

Who will die willingly for her young

That is love that does not stop 

To ask questions or seek answers

Or keep counts and tables

Unconditional love

Sets no rules or boundaries

It is complete acceptance

Of who and what we are

The Divine Love of our Maker

Is the most sublime act of all

We give love

We receive love

But most of all we must earn love

I can't believe this. Did you read my poem on love. I say "false gods is to fall from grace" and so it is true for we live in a materialistic world, a greedy ,lustful society. A me-me world of self,
all for me--none for you sort of thing. This is far from unconditional love and it is y marriage fails and many are just living together because they are not ready to suffer and have a long term relationship. Our changing world. 'There is no recompense for love because love comes from the Peaceful Dove' The reason there is no peace, joy or happiness - It is all due to our adversary - it is not from flesh and blood - WE MUST BELIEVE THIS The Little Flower
