Love stretches us. The more we allow ourselves to feel it, receive it, express it, and share it, the greater our capacity for more of it. I'm not just being romantic — I think this is really the way it works.
I was pondering such deep thoughts recently when I heard someone describe their heart as “full of love.”
I’ve certainly used this phrase before, and I totally understand feeling so full of a feeling I could burst. But the phrase “full of love” landed for me as something of a misnomer. Because Love forever expands us, it doesn’t seem possible to ever get one’s fill of it — there’s always room for more. Right?
The question isn’t how to get full, but rather where do we let our never-fullness carry us? It’s not about sating desire once and for all, but rather allowing our yearning to lead us full-throttle, full-out, full-fledged, full-speed into glorious uncharted territories — BEING and BRINGING more than we ever thought possible.
I can’t wait to see you at our service of Song & Celebration this Saturday at 6:00 pm. Join us at 5:30 for wine, community, & cheer. XO, Rev. Drew
