Every so often, I stop working on the house, or sewing or etc., etc. and think about my feelings.
Okay, not really. My feelings are happening inside of me the entire time I am doing everything I do. I just don't share them much on this blog. Today I am thinking about LOVE. I'm thinking about how we treat other people, how we view them, and what our feelings are as a result.
Sometimes at church I feel like we make statements about our membership or refer to our faith as some kind of exclusive "club" we are in. Like, aren't we such lucky beasts that we know all the secrets that others don't know?!?
I hate that feeling. I felt it today and it bug, bug, bugged me. I want to love mankind. I want to be friendly to the person I am around...whoever and wherever that is. I don't want there to be an ulterior motive of trying to make that friend join the same club as me for fear that they'll be damned for not knowing the same "secrets."
I just want to love and loved because we are. We are people. We are the human family. We hurt, we rejoice, we love our babies, and we just want to be cared about in a sincere way.
