I took my duck puppet to church today… I wanted to talk about LOVE, and “ducky” is a good ice breaker… kids and adults alike smile and chuckle as soon as “ducky” makes an appearance. Why the prop, well, love although a small four letter word, really packs a punch, and to everyone, it means something different.
Children have no problem saying the love you, or showing they love you, but … for many reasons, adults have a more difficult time with the word. AND if you have a problem with the word, how do you manage the emotion that goes along with that word.
When you love someone, you are saying, I care, you mean something to me. Loving someone is including them in your life, in your heart, in your space. it isn’t a restriction, it is am embrace.
Love is the freedom to be………………. love is knowing that happiness or sadness is all part of the embrace ……………………. love is being able to share your vulnerable moments and know you are safe …………………… love is knowing when you fall, or make a mistake, it is just a moment in time, that true love is forever, always and everlasting.
Friendships are built on trust
Love is the thread that binds us all
it may be small, however
the word, is one that has the power to forestall
the negatives in this world, to erase
fear,greed,wars and strife
so that, we all live with love in our life
yes… ducky went to church and made everyone smile today!
LOVE to each and every one of you.
