The Garden That Love Creates

The Garden of Live Flowers Jose Maria Cuellar via Compfight

 

Love creates an imbalance.

Most of the time, love is wielded as a business arrangement.  Quid pro quo.  You do for me, I do for you, and it’s all good baby.  The funny thing is, love is anything but a transaction.  If you go 50% and I go 50%, then we really don’t have much.

The imbalance creates a  gap which we yearn to fill.

Whoever loves the most- whoever dares to risk, initiate vulnerability, assumes responsibility for the relationship, creates space.

The gap is a garden where hope, grace, forgiveness, art, and all manner of wonderful things can grow.
