do you do with your love? It's an interesting
question, isn't it? And it's not a question that
most of us think about. If I'm a good singer, I
might ask myself how I use my gift, how I develop
it. If I'm a gifted athlete, I can always ask myself
whether or not I'm using that gift to its full
potential. But love isn't like talent--talent is
distributed almost randomly, and different individuals are
blessed with different talents. Love, though, is a
gift given to all, and how we develop it as a part of
ourselves is up to us.
don't always show love. Sometimes I get annoyed with
other people or even afraid of them, and that keeps me
from showing the love that's in me. Sometimes other
factors in my life might bring me down, and it's difficult
to nurture and show love when I'm down.
I do take care of my love, though, it can grow in strength
and shine through even when I'm down and out. No
matter how another person treats me, I can still treat
them with love if I keep on watering my love and helping
it to grow strong and true.
someone loves me, I have to accept that love and nurture
it and help it to grow. The love I share, likewise,
needs help to grow--it just won't happen. Love is a
beautiful gift, and if we just leave it in the cupboard
where it never will see light or feel water, then we
squander the gift. And I don't want to do that.
