When our hearts are torn and broken we often go digging

for gold, justifying our need for redemption

we climb the wrong mountain

seek the wrong window

to be opened.

Simply so,

we can be loved.


And yet

the sun sparkling

on the waves

tells us –

we are loved

Peace and blessings to everyone.

“When we love people, we give them hope.”

  1. The sun sparkling on the waves…the most serene sight ever! It calms me down just as it lights the fire in me…there’s something about the ocean that is intimidating yet attractive! 🙂 What a lovely photograph to accompany the beautiful words you have churned out today 🙂
