What Love Is

Years ago I asked a young man who was engaged to be married, “How do you know that you love her?” It was a loaded question, intended to help him look at his heart’s motives for the upcoming marriage. After several thoughtful moments, he responded, “I know I love her because I want to spend the rest of my life making her happy.”

Music And Megaphone

Christopher Locke buys old trumpets, trombones, and French horns and transforms them into acoustic amplifiers for iPhones and iPads. His creations are modeled on the trumpetlike speakers used in the first phonographs during the late 1800s. Music played through Christopher’s AnalogTelePhonographers has a “louder, cleaner, richer, deeper sound” than what is heard from the small speakers in the digital devices. Along with being interesting works of art, these salvaged brass instruments require no electrical power as they amplify the music people love to hear.

Shadowed

Someone was shadowing me. In a darkened hallway, I turned the corner to go up a flight of stairs and was alarmed by what I saw, stopping dead in my tracks. It happened again a few days later. I came around the back of a favorite coffee shop and saw the large shape of a person coming at me. Both incidents ended with a smile, however. I’d been frightened by my own shadow!

    Can you imagine if we treated people the same way we do stuff? Like they were worth our toil and sweat so that when we go to heaven we can take many of them with us. God thought human kind was worth so much, precious in His sight to be sought after to show His amazing grace and love to yet so often we cast them aside if they do not meet our standards. We were created in His image yet the harm we cause each other.

      So true. We should love our neighbors as ourselves and use our possessions (things). Instead, we love our possessions and use people to acquire them. Have mercy, Lord Jesus, have mercy!

    Great message today. I am sorry that I have been guilty of comparing my current status with others who appear to be more richly blessed with wealth. On the other hand, at my 70 years of age, The Lord has richly blessed me and my family in other ways, we have enough, not too much or too little. I feel bad that I even had thoughts of regret. The Lord reminds me, look what I have done for you.

    I too miss Doc Perspective. Hope and pray he is well.
