choose to be in love…

“Where love is, there God is”
Leo Tolstoy

(vibrancy found at the garden center / Julie Cook / 2017)

“Our greatest danger is not our sins, but our indifference.
We must be in love with God.
All other loves pale in comparison.
Our nature is not built for so strong a love, so we must change our nature.

All other loves I have must be a sample of the love of God.
All the world and everything in it must be sample of the love of God

When we say that we love God with our whole heart, it means whole.
We must love only God.
And that sets up the triangle—
God, the soul, the world.”

Dorothy Day

    Julie, you have written about my favourite topic – being in love with God! A few years ago people would look at me strangely when I would speak about being in love with God. Then I found this prayer by Fr. Pedro Arrupe, S.J. and I knew that I wasn’t the only one. Here’s the link to “Fall in Love”:

    Blessings and prayers.

  2. Lovely post and flowers. Is that May Night Salvia? 🙂 ❤

    • as the flower queen, I must yield to your expertise…there I was walking through Lowes’ garden center, thinking of you and hearing your squeals of delight in my head…as I kept snapping pictures with my phoning…slowing Gregory down who’d simply thought we’d run in for some fertilizer for the yard—as I don’t yet have time to think about working in the yard and planting plants…but it was a sea of colorful delight with your name splashed all over it 🙂
