Love Is All I Can Do

I Have Used All My Options

There comes a time in your life where you have to reevaluate the current situation at hand

When you look at the past and see how far you have come

You look towards the future and know exactly where you want to be

But now here you are

You are not there in the past or here in the future

So not to confuse the situation any further

You take a deep breathe and exhale out

Aahhhhhh that feels better and now it is time for me to notice all I have is love

I want to hold it and then search for a way to give it away every day

I know the secret is in giving and that love will always come back to you

It has this amazing power that nothing else seems to come close

It never runs on empty

The more you give it multiplies and comes back

When it returns it brings new feelings that you haven't experienced before

You have found so many things in your life to love

Without love what good is it

They are just things

They serve a purpose but the real beauty is seen when something is loved

Then it is like a foot being scratched at the exact moment you have that itch

As you rub it you know that feeling is for certain

As you repeat the words silently then out loud to yourself

I love that

Then you want to say words like

I could do this all day

Wow you know how good that feels

My whole body is instantly in tune with that one thought

Nothing else seems to matter

Then I think for a moment what else do I love that much

The list is growing by the moment

From a movie that just found it's way in my heart

Each line was so perfect that I felt I was there

There was nothing I wanted to add or subtract

I looked for something else that made me feel so good

Then I remember eating watermelon this afternoon

Delicious and mouth watering

After every bite I just wanted to have another

I felt like as long there was watermelon to eat I had to see it didn't go to waste

It would be an awful shame

Then as I look around to the ones I love

My mom who has always charmed me from the start

When growing up no matter what I was doing or saying

I would stop to look at her and see her reaction as if I was some how connected by an invisible cord

One of my first loves that guided me to all loves after

Then many years later I could see endless loves that still exsist

They take many forms and shapes but each I can stand here and argue that they are my great loves

Now I come here with the love of my life my wife

That has been a love that has taken my feelings in a new direction

The passion is there like my other loves

I cannot wait to relive the moments that we enjoy so estatically

But this connection is like another cord one that gives me new sensations

A love that is so strong it keeps wanting more and giving more at the same time

See my other loves I wanted more of and my mothers love I wanted to see more

As I scratched my head in such deep thought

This special love combines all my loves

How does it happen ?

I am not sure

It happens every day and I still can't put my finger on it

It is effortless and abundant

So when you are ever in doubt of the day that you are having

Search out all your true loves and you will find what I had found

A love that connects us all in some way

It is the love that makes us people

May your loves bring you to all your destinations

For it is these loves that will give you back the love that you have always wanted

So enjoy with me the things I do

Love is where it starts and only love I want to do the best

Your writing reminds me of Philipians chapter 4 one of my favorite chapters in the bible. Especially this verse, Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise. Philipians 4:8

Its a great way to live life.

Phenomenal and it seems like all the people I follow are connected today. Is that incredible or what. I had no phone or internet yesterday (air card not related to phone really strange) which gave me the opportunity to spend time with all I love from the past in memories to the present. All the ups and talk to you soon

Such a beautifully convicting piece, and a wonderful reminder! Thank you for the well written reminder that the more we appreciate what we love, give love away, and embrace love that it comes back to us, our list grows longer, and love embraces us also. Beautiful, yet again.

In love of words,

ALN
