Christian love --loves others even if there is no return back-scratches. It is weird to the world, which is busy scratching backs that have already scratched their own.
I sometimes wonder what it would be like to walk physically with Jesus Christ in the world. I realize we have the Holy Spirit to help us. Jesus said that this is better than Him being with us physically, everyday. To actually watch Him with my own eyes is something I long to do. I know it would change my life and how I give or return back scratches.
When I hear of physical abuse going on it makes me angry and makes me want to hurt the abuser. Returning hurt for hurt.
These are things we don't talk about. We hide our fears and our hurts behind smiles and then return to scratching backs that have already scratched our own. Loving those that love us. Hating those that hate us.
My mind is jumbled this morning and I am rambling.
Happy birthday, Mom.
I'm going to go walking.
