Is it an act?
The worst crime in the world is to play with love.
Love defines truth. We cannot survive without both.
The first time you feel that feeling you know it is important. You can’t take your mind off it.
It keeps a man and a woman joined even when 5000 miles apart. The military knows it for sure. Letters from home are clutched tightly to the heart. Top left pocket.
One has no problem taking any bullet to protect family. To protect a child. To protect love.
To protect our flag.
Why is it worth it? That is a love act. To give up your life for another. To give up your life for all….
Fools for love? If not for Love then for what?
With Love in your heart you see and feel the need of others. You can’t turn away if love has its say. Be it a kind gesture, an arm around a shoulder, or a verbal pat on the back… love can be sent by you to make the small difference. Maybe planting a seed and positive memory for the one your heart chose.
A servant heart is one on the hunt for sadness and insecurity. To reassure and reaffirm.
The act of serving can rebuild family, community, business, and nation.
This is no act.
This is Love.
