Love One Another

Belated Happy Valentine's Day, dear blog friends!  I spent Valentine's Day in Guangzhou, China and I hope to share more about that later.  But for now, here are some illustrations from my prayer journal...



Unlike the usual idea of romantic love that we see in the movies, Pope Benedict XVI says, "Love is indeed 'ecstasy', not in the sense of a moment of intoxication, but rather as a journey, an ongoing exodus out of the closed inward-looking self towards its liberation through self-giving, and thus towards authentic self-discovery and indeed the discovery of God."  This is the kind of love I want to grow in, a love that is unconditional and self-giving.  Teach me, Lord!

I'm planning to link up with Paint Party FridayStudio Sneak PeekBrag on God FridayShow and Tell SaturdayJust Journals, and Sunday Sketches .
