I chose the title of this blog because I have truly been surprised by love. In my childhood I thought that love could only be found in Prince Charming. But as I’ve gotten older, I’ve gratefully become aware that love comes in many shapes and sizes. It’s not just the romantic swelling-music-while-you-sigh-and-gaze-longingly-into-each-other’s-eyes kind of love (which Song of Solomon, thankfully, gives Biblical grounds for…) but it is also the love of a child who runs to hug you and the love of a friend who goes out of her way to make sure that you have what you need when you are sick. It’s the love of a neighbor who comes over to talk to you and catch up on life. Love is all around. You just have to look for it and look for ways to be it to others.
But the Love that has transformed my life and makes all other loves possible is found in this Story:
This Love will last throughout eternity. Turn your life over to Jesus; you will not be disappointed. Give Him reign over your heart, believe that His blood was shed for your sins and ask His forgiveness for all the bad things you’ve done. He is kind and loving. He will forgive and cleanse you from all your sin. And you will find joy and peace for your heart.
