Arrow Touchstones

Thursday, January 3, 2013 You are reading from the book Touchstones
Love doesn't just sit there like a stone; it has to be made, like bread, remade all the time, made new.
—Ursula K. Le Guin

Our relationships are alive. We don't control them and neither do the other people involved. We certainly influence our relationships - and if we are aware, we see they also have their own yeast. Whether we are talking of a love relationship with our spouse, lover, children, friends, or parents, it is a very fluid and dynamic affair. If we are actively involved with the other person and give time and nourishment to the relationship, it will grow. But if we are passive and only waiting, the relationship will grow stale.

God speaks to us through other people. Our relationship with our Higher Power influences our relationships with all the people in our lives. Today we can nurture our relationships with time, tolerance, and honesty. In turn, we will be nourished.

May this day be one in which I give attention to those I love.

there's no 50/50 giving in a relationship it must be 100/100 with God's interest before that!

Thanks Inda!

Great read. God really does speak through other people. I never really related this to the fact that if I have a strong connection with my creator, my relationships with other people will therefore get better, because God is speaking through those people. Intriguing and amazing.
