Love Song for Easter

Over the past few years, I’ve noticed a consistency of struggles and changes during the first quarter of the year, more particularly over lent.  I’m not sure if it’s oppression or not, but I often tend to get spiritually, financially, purposefully challenged the beginning of each year. As Easter approaches, I reach an internal spring cleaning of sorts.  My spirit feels renewed (as much as I let it) and I reminded of the hope and glory God’s love offers.

So in the spirit of change and faith, I thought of posting an old favorite song of renewal:

He’s more than the laughter or the stars in the heavens
As close a heartbeat or a song on her lips
Someday she’ll trust Him and learn how to see Him
Someday He’ll call her and she will come running
and fall in His arms and the tears will fall down and she’ll pray,  “I want to fall in love with You”

And of course, my favorite Jesuit quote that has motivated me through many changes:

 

Nothing is more practical than finding God, than falling in Love in a quite absolute, final way. What you are in love with, what seizes your imagination, will affect everything. It will decide what will get you out of bed in the morning, what you do with your evenings, how you spend your weekends, what you read, whom you know, what breaks your heart, and what amazes you with joy and gratitude. Fall in Love, stay in love, and it will decide everything. – Father Pedro Arrupe SJ

Both are fervent reminders to fall in love, stay in love, and let God. Much needed after all this internal questioning and settling I’ve been going through. Thank you, Love 🙂
