hmm Ive never found money in my pocket that Ive never known I had....

But one time I hid five golden tickets in books in the library and five children found them inside books. They were quite excited.

The ones that didnt know they won a prize were the most surprised. But then there were some kids that deliberately asked me where the prizewinning books were and would try and borrow them all searching for them. lol

Really the point was to have children into borrowing and reading books they like, or love, not just for the prize they could win!

Never been there myself, but I imagine it's like when your Grandma bakes you cookies... not because she wants you to mow the yard or because you asked her to, but just because she wants you to have cookies.

johnny Cash tries to explain.




It seems love is temporary most of the time. Johnny Cash divorced his wife and married June Carter.

True love is the love God gives, human love is probably mixed up with other emotions most of the time, but who knows?!?!

I finally met a couple, that looks like true love. The personality types seem so complimentary. I think love is possible, but the risk is to high for me. Congratulations to all those that are happily married ever after.

Let's say, you found your true love, and it seems right. You both get married and ten years later your sick of each other. It probably happens all the time. Than the divorce shatters the dream, which probably was based on selfish reasons, rather than doing what it takes to make it happen.

All I know, is that when you're connected with the right person, for the right reasons, your joy spills out on others around you through no effort of your own.

It feels like being held in the arms of peace and safety, with a tenderness that makes you want to cry.
You feel seen, accepted, valued, just as you are.
You feel home, like you belong.
And you never want that moment to stop.

Love feels safe. It's not rushed. It's tender and attentive. Affectionate. Deeply caring. It's simple, yet profound.
It breaks the exterior shell and pours into the crevices of the deepest wounds in your soul. And it heals. In that safe space.
You feel like you can simply be yourself, you feel welcome, cherished.

This is a mix of my experiences with people plus my experience with the love of Jesus.
I think that kind of love is very rare, but oh how delightful.
Just know that Jesus loves you like that. And you can always go to Him and just be His beloved. He will hold your heart with the utmost care and attention and never let it go. In that safe, timeless space.



In Christ's peace,
TSWSA

I think a date is a bit surperflous, or extra - you dont necessarily need to date for love to grow.

It may always be there. But then Im thinking of the kind of love God gives us and cultivates with us.

I read a memoir written by his first wife, she seemed real heartbroken that he left her. :-(
They were young and maybe didnt really know each other that well, but he had more dreams than she had.

Dating is a way to get to know someone better. When you go on a date you can do or go most anywhere or do anything. Dinner, movies, shopping, picnic, group date, sporting event, hiking, swimming, anything that you might enjoy doing with another person.

It's a way to find out if you want to be with that person again and if your personalities blend or if you end up not wanting to ever see or be with them again.

Dating can be lots of fun. I imagine it's harder in the new Covid world we live in. But I don't see anything wrong with getting out and having fun.

Sometimes you even find a person you want to spend your life with after dating a while... It's not as scary as some folks make it out to be...

facetime date?
Both order a takeaway delivery for the other person. see how long it takes to get there, and add a surprise to their order.

You gotta think of fun dates.
I recall reading a christian book and it had like 101 dates you could go I mean some people got no clue what to do on a date, esp if they never been on one before. Or even what to say.

a date isnt like a job interview where you interrogate someone about what they are going to do in 5 years time and get them to list their strengths and wekanesses lol
