The Power of Love

February has always been known as the month of Love! This is the one time of year that society tells us that we are to shower our husbands, wives, soul-mates, boyfriends, girlfriends, and or our significant others with gifts that represents the love we have for one another. This is the one time during the year that it is okay to openly express that love is in the air.

So what happens when the candles are blown out, the dinner has been consumed, the flowers has withered, the chocolate eaten or hidden in the refrigerator for a later time and the fine jewelry has safely been stored away. Is the thrill of this special day gone already and back to the rut and rat race of love as we know it. Was it just for show only or is real love still lingering behind, nice and steady, standing strong  and firmly rooted in communication, compassion and compromise?

As I think back about my younger personal experiences of relationships disguise as or hid behind the puffed up word Love, they have been very painful and selfish thoughts that I allowed others to impose upon me. I was always willing to give, never on the receiving end as the way God intended for love to be as it relates to how we are to treat, be treated, and love one another. Hindsight, if Love (being an action word) is to be acted upon as it is out lined in what is called the Love chapter in the Bible, (1 Corinthians 13:1-13), then let brotherly love rule and reign throughout while discrimination, selfishness, self-centeredness and hatred cease!

” Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity (love), I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. 2) And though I have the gif of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have  all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity (Love), I am nothing. 3) And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profited me nothing. 4) Charity (Love) sufferers long, and is kind; charity (love) envies not; charity (love) vaunted not itself, is not puffed up, 5) Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeks not her own, is not easily provoked, think not evil; 6) rejoice not in iniquity, but rejoice in the truth; 7) Bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. 8) Charity (Love) never fails; but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away. 9) Fo we know in part, and we prophesy in part. 10) But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away. 11) When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I though as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things. 12) For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known. 13) And now abides faith, hope, charity (love), these three; but the greatest of these is charity (Love)!”

Angels Unawares

Upon leaving a restaurant my husband and I frequent, I received a blessing of a life time from a beautiful elderly woman whom I never met nor saw before. She got my attention by waving at me to tell me how much she admired my hair.  I could not help but notice this charming small frame elderly lady sitting alone near the exit waiting for who appeared to be her daughter at the cash register.  As I was approaching her with a smile, she returned it with in a soft sweet voice,  “your hair is beautiful”!

Once I got closer to her she repeated herself a little louder, yet still soft, ” you really do have beautiful hair, it is so pretty”, she said! I responded with a humble thank you and proceeded to let her know how much I really admired her beautiful green and pink country plaid jacket.  I could not help but notice that she was dressed just like her daughter, however she did have on a stunning fuchsia applique` cap that accented her entire outfit.

In the mean while, my husband recognized he knew the daughter of this beautiful woman. He could not help himself by interrupting our conversation and asking of her age. Her hearing was obviously a little faint and her daughter answered from the register before she got the opportunity to respond, “she is 103 years old”, we both were amazed needless to say! My Husband leaned over to her and repeated her age looking into her face, and she replied with, a simple yes!

I was deeply humbled and flattered to have received such a compliment from a 103 years old woman sitting in front of me with such grace and style.  Who would have thought she would have taken notice of me at such an age?  She sat with great poise and dignity and when she stood up, she stood tall, walked straight without a cane, or assistance aside from a little guidance stepping down a step.  How remarkable!

Before departing our ways, she reached to give me a hug and while she embraced me, she whispered in my ears, “if I don’t ever see you again~I will see you in heaven.” Wow! As my eyes begin to tear up, I said to her that “if you should get to heaven before I do, please tell my mother that I will be seeing her soon.  She will know you by the light shining from your halo!”

I could not help but to sit awhile before allowing my husband to drive away to gather my thought and just savor this precious moment. My mind drifted off to the amazement of the most stunning iridescent shimmer of white and silver, fine, long plated, pinned up hair as a halo around her head that peaked from underneath her stunning hat.

As God would have it, the scripture that came to mind was Hebrews 13:1-2, “Let brotherly Love continue. Be not afraid to entertain strangers; for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.” Lesson: Be careful how you treat others you will never know the Impact or the Blessings they will leave upon your life!

“For the Battle is Not Yours~It is the Lord’s!”
