How do I love thee let me count the way’s? Love is difficult to define. I know what it feels like to be loved. I know what it feels like to love. I can say, I love you to the moon and back, but even that doesn’t measure up to how much I love you. How do I love they? I can’t put into words because there are no words that can express how great it is. It’s as mystical as trying to explain what God is. I believe that’s because God and Love are one and the same.
What I can say is that God is at the center of our love for one another. We are bound together as one, and God is the glue that holds us together. How do I love thee? I can’t find the words. I just know that I do. it’s the greatest feeling in the world, and I’m so grateful I get to share it with someone as wonderful as you.
“One day I will find the right words, and they will be simple.” –Jack Karouac
As I read this quote the first line to the hymn “Blessed Assurance” sang in my head: “This is my story this is my song,” that one day I will find the right words in our human language to describe the simplicity of God that He’s shown me in my own life. We are the ones who make things more difficult than He ever intended them to be, but learning that is a lesson for each of us. Because we are all so different it’s as if we speak another language at times to each other. I’ve learned to accept that. Maybe I’m just not the one who can bring that clarity into their life. That being said, as one who is impelled to inspire, I love finding different ways to express the simplicity as it is reveled to me in my own life. This is my story, this is my song to be an extension touching pen to paper, letting go of ego, being One with God, letting the right words flow as simply as they come.
“Quiet people have the loudest minds.”- Stephen Hawking
I used to be a quiet person. I guess I still am in many ways, but I’ve learned to let my mind speak for me through my writing. The mind is where our thoughts are created, and all creations have a need to be expressed. It gets a little crowded inside there when they can’t find a way out. Fighting to be heard over all the other thoughts, causes a loud shouting match inside our head. When it does find a way out, it often gets jumbled up in the excitement of the release. For me pouring those thoughts out onto paper makes room for clarity. That in turn allows my thoughts to flow with the creative expression they deserve. After all we quiet people have the loudest minds because we have so many great things screaming to be heard.
