Love Knows No Borders

Parkland, Florida. It is difficult to see any wisdom in current events. Yes, difficult to see how we can glue all the broken pieces back together again. I’m not talking about politics, democrat or republican. I’m talking about human values. Our nation’s heart for each other. At the very least, I wish that we lived in a world where all children are safe, healthy, fed, clothed, educated and nurtured. My husband is a direct descendent of Dr. Benjamin Rush, one of the signers of the United States Declaration of Independence. I wonder what the signers would think today – have we been good stewards of their hopes and dreams?
So, I focus. I focus on local things. Making a difference in my church, neighborhood, in my hometown. It’s hard to see how letting someone else go in front of me in line at the grocery store can make any ripple of goodness throughout the state, country, world – but I keep on believing it is so – I keep on keeping on. It is because I know the ending to this story – I do! I know how it all ends. They lived happily ever after. It’s true. I quote the Message bible: I Colossians 1:18-20
“He was supreme in the beginning and – leading the resurrection parade – he is supreme in the end. From beginning to end he’s there, towering far above everything. Everyone. So spacious is he, so roomy, that everything of God finds its proper place in him without crowding. Not only that, but all the broken and dislocated pieces of the universe – people and things, animals and atoms – get properly fixed and fit together in vibrant harmonies, all because of his death, his blood that poured down from the cross.”
Keep the faith.
Although the title of this month’s Blog Train was “Love Knows no Borders“, I misread it to be “Bounds“. It means the same in the long run, but I wanted you to know of the title difference.
“Love knows no reason, no boundaries, no distance. It has a sole intention of bring people together to a time called forever.” (unknown author)
