"Love is not only something you feel. It is something you do." David Wilkerson
In her book, ‘No Less Than Greatness,’ Mary Manin Morrissey speaks of a research study that explored how family members communicate with each other. Apparently, the most frequently spoken words between husbands, wives, sisters and brothers were "What’s on?" and "Move."
She goes on to say, "We all desire great relationships but often settle for just getting by. Many of us have stopped questioning the fact that we may know fictitious TV families more intimately than we do our own."
The most powerful force in our lives is our ability to love. Indeed, it’s the most basic essence of who we are. How do you experience and express your love for the people in your life?
"The whole idea of compassion is based on a keen awareness of the other…. The whole purpose of life is to live by love." Thomas Merton
