How Great Thou Part

I like to believe that what fuels my brand of writing is love. That is the type of writer that I am. I am drawn most passionately to examine the average, every day moments of life. LIfe of course is always or at least, should be driven by love.

It makes me think of the passage, “And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.”

We learn this from a very young age. The kiss of a mother can heal a boo boo. Our lives begin teaching us this particular magic of love.

At times, as a writer less is more. I wrote once of another simple concept. How selfishness can end a marriage. Love can heal a marriage. Love has amazing healing properties. The problem is that love can get tainted and become conditional rather than unconditional.

Love healed us after my father left. I think of this often now as the struggles of divorce get greater. I try and remain focused on the exquisite simplicity of love and its’ power.

“And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.”
