There is no greater expression than living love out loud. To wear love, is an expression I start my day off with. I want every person I meet to leave our interaction feeling like I was present with them. It is hard to do in today’s world. Everyone has somewhere else to be, mind focused on the next task, barely registering the person in front of them.
That is me so many days. But when I remember, I try to wear love. It takes a lot of effort, but is worth it every single time.
Rob Bell said in a recent podcast, “Every table is an altar.” And I went through the day thinking how much I loved that quote, because it resonates so much with how I want to live my life. No matter what I do, where I go, or who I talk to; it matters. Whether a comment on Facebook, an email to a friend, or a smile at the person I’m passing on the street; it matters.
There are no throw-away conversations.
There are no moments that go unnoticed. We don’t slip through life in a bubble of isolation. When we pick our heads up, look at the person in front of us and say with our bodies, words and minds, “You matter.” That is where love intercedes.
And love makes a difference. It doesn’t matter who is in front of us, love them. Speak with love, act with love, be love.
