Jesus: He’s everywhere, even in the most unexpected places.
Faith - it does not make things easy, it makes them possible
“He became what we are, so that he might make us what he is.”
~ St Athanasius the Great (ca. 295-373, Father of the Church)
Thank you, Holy Father! :-)
Sigh…. Reepicheep was always my favourite CS Lewis character - such faith in Aslan!
Love is always a two way street…so safe to say, I have never experienced love. Well, I’venever experienced the romantic love, because – sure, I have felt very strong feelings for someone, even convinced myself that it was love, but pure love only happens when it is returned.
It kind of freaks me out, the improbability of it. The fact that two people will feel the exact passion and love for each other at the same time, in the same place… the chances just don’t compute for me. And yet, I see it all around me. I have friends that are mega in love, I know so many people who have that awesome love for another and it sort of blows my mind.
Will I ever have that blessing? Of having that mega strong feeling I have for a guy I really like (I can’t say love, even though it feels like it, see paragraph 1) returned? Logically, and statistically, I don’t know… I even doubt it… but I have faith that it’ll happen… and until then, I’ll blow off these occasional bouts of loneliness I feel and embrace the fact that I am single, independent and loving life, but still… There are only so many times you can just put on a happy face before you crumble
