Love Is Hard

Love is hard.

Love for people, especially those who are different from you.

Love that says “I see you as a person.”

Love that says “let your unique light shine in the world” because each of our souls touches the divine mystery.

Love that says “we’re on a journey together, and my fate is tied up with yours.”

Love that grabs you and won’t let go until your whole life is dedicated to siding with love.

Love that changes the world.

Love is hard. Do it anyway.
