Love is reciprocal. There is a joy in both giving it and receiving it.
Imagine the difference it will be making to our lives right now - the sacrifices being made, the untold gestures of kindness and consideration; they are all making a difference.
All of these deeds of love are steadily calling us to a new way of living.
The philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche offers some beautiful insight, "Love is not consolation. It is light." And Hafiz suggests that 'when the tight and conditional restrictions we put on love are released, our love becomes like the warmth of the sun" - heartening words.
Nina Simone’s song springs to mind: It's a new dawn - it's a new day - it's a new life...
"Be completely humble and gentle; and be patient, bearing with one another in love." (Ephesians 4:2)
Happy Easter 😊
