Love. It's a rather important aspect of life. Without it humans can literally die. When we receive love, it's amazing how we feel...how it affects our lives. When we give love, however, sometimes it's thrown back in our faces or rejected and sometimes that makes us question alot.
i love my sister. i love her because she is my sister as the very basic reason and for so, so many other reasons in between. i also like her - alot.
i don't agree with her choices and now, after only 48 hours, she is making some of those same horrible choices. And that hurts so much - not because she's done anything to me - after all, it's her life and her choices as well as her consequences. But it hurts because she deserves and can do so much better. And she's chosing not to.
But i love her more...and although my love may not ever be enough to help her (not rescue...help), it will never fail or falter.
After all, God loved me uncondionally and requires me to do the same to others (the second greatest commandment). If 'others' is my sister, how much greater should that love be?
