The Hard Love - Five Minute Friday

(Ok - it's Saturday, but I just didn't want to miss out)
The Hard Love
Any real love has its hard moments
- when you care enough about the other person to risk the relationship for the sake of honesty and what is best for the other person
- when you love enough to let go and leave the one you love in His nail scarred hands and trust Him to take care of your bruised or broken heart
- when your limited ability to love reveals your utter brokenness and absolute need for Him, His wisdom, His grace
- when you finally realize or realize again His gift and His love are what give any significance to your life and your ability to love


  1. Found your link on the Five Minute Fridays... isn't it funny how many ways that simple word 'love' is interpreted??
    Great words, keep writing.

  2. Beautifully said...and brings me back to the thought that anything that is really worth having requires something from us. Thanks for your ever-encouragement, insights, wisdom, and LOVE! <3
