Find Perfect Love this Valentine's Day!

As Valentine's Day approaches I wanted to write to you about what I believe love truly means.  There is love here on earth but then there is perfect love.  

I remember growing up in a very small house with 7 brothers and sisters and having no one to talk to.  We can be surrounded by folks 24/7 and still feel isolated.  Why?  Because we have not loved.  I have always believed that I was a little bit different, even as a kid I would rather spend my playtime in church after school praying while all the other kids were on the playground.  I went there to find peace and feel loved.  My home was always buzzing with people and arguements and work of some kind, so I relished the peacefulness of my prayer life.  I believe that sometimes when we feel isolated it is because God is inviting us to seek Him. 

For most of us, we don't feel alive unless we are out with our friends or being thought of by someone. One of the nicest gifts I have been given is the peace I receive from spending time in solitude.  Since I have always been "different," it stands to reason that people may not always understand me or be able to relate to me.  I have a few close girl friends from when I was growing up that have always loved and understood me.  I never have to try and please them or to be someone special around them.  We are just comfortable with one another, but other than a few close friends, I think that many of us feel alone or isolated...and I respect that now.  I actual am happy to be able to be alone...with God.  Maybe you feel the same?  If so, rejoice!  God has called you out of the chaos and drama of those who relish living for themselves.  He has called YOU to Himself, to spend your "playtime" with Him.  Wow, how special is that? 

I am eternally grateful for those people in my life who have loved me unconditionally, I am truly blessed.  But I am even more grateful for those people whom have allowed me to love them, because....

1 Corinthians 13

1 If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.
