River of Love
It starts with the Father, flows into Jesus, and then into you and me and from us out to the whole world. One enormous River of Universal Love. All we have to do is let the River take us on through life.
But most of us have a hard time letting go. We cling to every broken branch and bush and weed along the River bank, convinced that that's where happiness lies. We choose to be whipped around and beat against the rocks along the bank rather than risk the huge, fast moving River that is Divine Love.
But then one day through a mother's love, or the love of a spouse, or the generous love of a friend, we hear Jesus inviting us to love as he loves. We let go and are caught up in the River of All Embracing Love whom we sometimes call God.
