love thursday 11.26.09 ~ thanksgiving

(the guys put the christmas lights up--i am thankful)

Genuine Christian love is forged against the anvil of our selfishness and possessiveness ... It is important to remember that love is more than a feeling. It is active and transitive. The real test of my loving is not that I feel loving, but that the other person feels loved by me. Love is what I do to create this sense of feeling cared for.

~ Morton T. Kelsey ~
from his book
Companions on the Inner Way

I am thankful for...

...kind people populating my day with smiles on their faces

...having the energy to accomplish what needed to be done

...kittens

...family

...turkey gravy

...elastic waist bands

...sparkling red wine

...Christmas lights that someone else put up

...quiet

...laughter

...love.

Happy Love Thursday!

(Thanks to Chookooloonks for starting Love Thursday.)
