Okay, for me, life has been about the search for love. I personaly like to be loved. I like being liked, but I love being loved. Of course there are different types of love for which the Greeks had names: agape (spiritual), eros, (physical), philla, (mental), and storge, (affection).* I think I have experienced all of these, maybe one or two not as much I would have liked, but, hey, life is about the living, or is it loving? In any case, love is generally a positive thing. sometimes it gets perverted or a bit twisted, but then that really isn't love, is it?
So with Valentine's Day fast approaching, everyone has love on their minds. I am no exception. Why all this obsession with love? I would say it is because love is all there is. And love, to me, is just another word for God. And when I remember to look for the good, look for love, look for God in everything, I am much more likely to feel the love, the good and the presence of God.
End of sermon. Go finish your Valentine's Day shopping. I hear chocolate is good for that.
