because they are expressions of love. We express love through words. We express love through actions. Words and actions are important because they remind us of God’s love. I learned in grade school that our family and friends are God’s way of telling us how much He loves us. There’s a lesson learned from what I felt this morning: People show you what they think and feel about you by the way they treat you. There are no exceptions, only truth. I have to accept that, no matter how painful it is. We have to make peace with people who hurt us thoroughly and without remorse. These people exist in the world.
And then… there are people who do love us. 🙂
