How can I forget that the only thing that we’re always really teaching is love? – Ann Voskamp

What if this is the last thing I ever write?
What if I’m gone
tomorrow,
or even today?
What is the most important thing I have learned
from my time here?
Not even hard questions for me to answer:

God = Love

Yes, that’s it.
Sounds simple,
yet it is so much more.
We are the beloved creations of God,
never alone,
loved beyond our comprehension.
Begin to explore it.
Just glimpses of this true, pure love
will change your life.
Begin to discover,
excavate the truth,
about what love really is,
how it acts,
what it looks like,
the intimacy possible,
the truth
of trust without borders.
(We’ve been tricked into thinking
it’s about physical attraction,
or that it’s self-serving)
Real love has NO fear attached.
No agenda, no claims, no hoops to jump.
None.
We are free to be transparent,
accepted as we are.
free to be our best, and highest, selves.
We are always loved like this.
Every breath.
We are given the free will to decide to choose it,
or not.
Hope we talk tomorrow…
but, if not,
I’ve shared the best thing I know.
Don’t worry –
I’m ok –
either way!
