Toy impresario, wonder afficianado and avid shoe wearer

How apt, that I should re-watch the movie, after so many years, on Easter Day. :)

Happy Easter!!

Love poured out

This is an excerpt from a Holy Thursday vigil booklet in my church. I thought it was very very meaningful:
We all know that when we love someone, we want to share with him or her all that we have. We want to belong to each other and want to feel and experience being loved.

However, all of our human experiences of love is only a trace of what God's love really is. God is love without end, without condition, without limit or restraint. God is love without caution or regret, even when we are not faithful or trustworthy, or even when we disappoint Him again and again.

If love is to make a gift of oneself to the beloved, then God is the greatest lover of all time and beyond time. In His love and mercy for all of us, He gave us His only begotten Son, who became like one of us except sin, to teach and guide us, to reveal His love for us, to heal us body and spirit, and to lay down His life got all of us so that we may be saved. By His self-giving and resurrection, we are raised to a new life and made heirs of the Kingdom with Him. By His love, we are no longer called servants but His friends. Any by way of response for all that Jesus has done and is continuing to do for us, God makes upon us the simple demands of love:

"My son, give me your heart," - Proverbs 26:26
