What audacity we have, to be in love. To take on the highest challenge the Divine flings at us, to be like Him. To hold another’s heart in our hands, and promise to keep it safe- we know not what it is we do. When we ask to come under the shelter of another, to stop running and lean into the protection of his arms- when we allow another to lean into the protection of ours- surely we know not what it is we do. For if we did, few would be in love. would hold another’s heart in our hands, knowing who it is we are. To promise shelter and protection, when we cannot save ourselves. To be in love, when surely we will wound the one we love. What we ask for is grace, a shot at redemption. A chance to prove we are children of God. That we can be forgiven, that we can be restored. What we’re really doing, when we are in love, is asking: for healing, for acknowledgment, for reconciliation.
