lot of thanks

Good morning!  Thank you!  I am having a hard time finding the words for this post. Yesterday I was honored with the award you see here by Alpana Jaiswal Admin of Bloggers Reflections and a soul mate of mine. I would like to say thank you to her and to all of you that have commented on the post yesterday.  I don’t know that I am worthy of such an honor.

The goal of my post was to express my views of love and to help men and women to understand each other better.  I have been blessed so many ways in my life by love that its abundance must be shared. Eleven people expressed their views here, from all reaches of the world.  I have read each response many times and I am awe struck by the love I see.  

I have tried to find my own word to explain love, and I have searched many sources, love stories, love poems and sonnets, historical records.  I found this passage “Clarke's Commentary on the Bible
Love your enemies - This is the most sublime piece of morality ever given to man. Has it appeared unreasonable and absurd to some? It has. And why? Because it is natural to man to avenge himself, and plague those who plague him; and he will ever find abundant excuse for his conduct, in the repeated evils he receives from others; for men are naturally hostile to each other. “  
But this is love.

As a boy I was loved by my family and friends but I was afraid of love I did not know what love is.  As a young man I look for and hunted love as I thought it was something I did not have and with the idea that sex is love. When I saw my wife to be I found that love was inside of me and it had nothing to do with sex.  We have been happily married for forty five years and ongoing.  It could be said it was love at first site, we never dated we just got married.  Love is part of if not the whole of who I am and who you are.

So I hope you believe me when I say I love you the love you are. Thank you and god bless
