Perhaps, thoughts of sadness do not exist in us, but outside of ourselves.
It’s sometimes difficult for us to express our affectation. Emotions exist in many languages and expressive cultures. Yet, in this world we are survivors. Let us learn to love deeper. Perhaps, our sorrows and twisting paths only occur to amass our encounters and crossings with those we found love with.
No, these intrusive ideations are disillusioned. We have gifts left to transmit. We are, after-all, bearers of light and of life.
God, we pray for purer hearts, so that we may experience this life more fully, more holy with our family and friends. We ask that you guard all those who suffer and protect us each night. Let us love more clearly, and see the others with more sympathy. As we try to survive the destruction and chaos of this world we live in, let us also remember to love ever more profoundly.
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
1 Corinthians 13 4-7
