The Work of Love
Love courses through everything – Fakhhruddin Iraqi
I recently learned that the first form of pencil was a ball of lead. Having discovered that lead, if scratched, would leave markings, people then wrestled with chunks of the stuff in an attempt to write. Through the work of many, the chunks were eventually shaped into a useful form that could fit the hand. The discovery became a tool.
I am humbled to confess that after a lifetime of relationship that love is no different. Be it a lover or a friend or a family member, the discovery of closeness appears in our life like a ball of lead – something that if wrestled with, will leave markings by which we can understand each other.
But this is only the beginning. The work of love is to shape the stuff of relationship into a tool that fits our hand. With each hardship faced, with each illusion confronted, with each trespass looked at and owned, another piece of the chunk is whittled and ove begins to become a sacred tool.
When truth is held in compassionate hands, the sharpness of love becomes clear and not hurtful.
This week’s Soul Challenge:
*bring to mind a significant realtionship that you wish to honor or even one you are struggling with
*as you center yourself, pray that the love you share continues to find its form
*as you enter your day, stay pliable and open to becoming a tool
