I Love The Feast: “A Dose of Love, A Share of Life”

I Love The Feast: “A Dose of Love, A Share of Life”: What the world needs now is love, sweet love. It’s the onlything that there’s just too little of. What the world needs now is love, sweet love. No, not just for some, but foreveryone.

Those lines kept playing in my head as we drove home from the Love Life retreat where God finally answered some of my questions. I never expected to be moved this much by the retreat. But even after a few days, I am still euphoric.

I realized a lot of things in my Love Life journey. I was reminded that life is short so we should make the most out of it. Let us always remind our loved ones how dear they are to us, how much they matter, and how thankful we are for them.

We cannot give what we don’t have. We need to love ourselves before we can love others. If we practiced the saying,” an eye for an eye” the whole world would go blind. Jesus asks us to put love into life, to pay it forward, and to break the spiral of violence, hatred, and negativity. Love is the only means to achieve anything.

I realize that there is absolutely nothing random about God. He's in control. Everything happens because He allows it, and He has good reasons although we may not understand them most of the time. When we experience hurt, our memories are painful as well. The first step to healing is forgiveness. As you remember the painful event, imagine Jesus comforting you. Do that for as long or as often as you need. When memories are healed we can forgive and, from there, everything follows. By learning to love ourselves, and then loving others, we become better. We become more of who we were meant to become.

Change is the only constant thing in this world. But only love changes it in a positive way.
