It isn’t really a secret – but for some I think it remains so.
It is the thing that makes women more beautiful as they age – and the thing that makes a man want to be a better man.
Slow to develop.
It can bring you to your knees
And break your heart.
It has the longest memory.
It is intense
But peaceful and fulfilling
It is all-consuming
and intensely self gratifying
It is – love.
Ever notice an attractive and confident woman? If she is loved and knows that she is – she sparkles and glows from within. There’s nothing more beautiful than a woman in love with a man – and in love with God and the world.
Ever notice an attractive and confident man? If he is in love and has the love of a special woman – it actually makes him want to be a better man. That love and admiration from the woman he loves and who loves him back actually releases something in him that makes him walk prouder, sit taller, work better, strive farther, dream clearer and live fuller.
Love is the great motivator. The missing link in many relationships The most misused and misunderstood emotion in the universe.
What was created and meant for good – got twisted and abused by man. And in the name of ‘love’ many relationships became weapons of abuse – and a means to manipulate the other. This was never God’s plan.
The whole Christmas story is based on love. God’s love. He came – He reached – He got involved – He gave. He showed us what true love is all about. It is self-sacrificing for another. It is action without thought of gain.
When we love like God loved us – we lose ourselves – we give ourselves away. We know the timeless secret of beauty that cannot be bought or sold. It comes from within.
And because you do not have to have the love of a man or a woman to understand this about God’s love – everyone can shine from within and be radiant with love. You can have that special something that glows on your face – all year-long. When you give yourself away for another.
I’m praying that this is the best Christmas season ever! As you live in love – one for another.
