God is Love

Watercolor-plum blossomThe word 愛 (Love) in Chinese has a heart in the centre. Years ago, I saw this symbol when working with the nuns in a convent. It was so meaningful that i never forgot about it. It depicted God reincarnating Himself as the Infant Jesus in the centre of the word ‘Love’. I decided to paint it with some plum blossoms.

God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them.” 1 John 4:16

I am constantly reminded of how far i am from loving the way God wants me to.

Jesus, i thank you for the peace i experienced this morning as i walked to Church, the silence in the adoration chapel and the special time i had with you. May we always have a place for You in our hearts. Amen.     By R

“There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.”  1 John 4:18
