Love is like a flower whose scent reaches across time and space. Allow the love in your life to grow, not wilt. Trust in the perfection of your life. Through the heart of the Christ you are blessed. Through the extension of His Heart to others you are loved, blessed, included and belong within the greatest heart/family of all. Self denial is a habit of the past, to deny the self the love of the Christ is an illusion. There is no pain in loving the Christ. Learn to love the Christ unconditionally.
