I love Mother Teresa quotes. She has had some great ones over her life. One of my favorites is:
I know that God said He’d never give me more than I can handle. I just wish He didn’t trust me so much.”
I just found this one in my perusings of the blog for Love146, a child trafficking abolitionist project : love146.org (you should check it out, seriously…like, now)
I have found the paradox that if I love until it hurts, then there is no hurt, but only more love.
The fear of pain and exposure when loving someone is often a deterrent to continue in loving them. But this is so true, that you go through the pain and find on the other side the love to cover up the memory of that pain and to continue on. I mean, what could be a greater representation of God’s love than that?
