I am convinced that human beings do not understand love.
Love is the epicenter of restraint.
It is not the violent passion of our lost world.
It is to reach for, yet knowing you cannot touch,
And rejoicing in the pure pain of that withholding.
It is the very adoration of things so beautiful we
Things or people so beautiful that we weep,
Simply because the Lord has seen fit
To bestow them upon us.
It is that person so beyond the glass that
We cannot touch,
Yet we thank God for their very existence.
Because God commands us so.
It is the Ultimate Commandment.
