Divine love can’t be interrupted.
The continuity of God’s love persists through time and change.
Here is an example:
Yesterday, I spoke on the phone with a friend I hadn’t talked to in two years. We both are busy in life, yet we think of one another often with thoughts of joy and compassion. Those memories and expectations are what keep love continuous.
The second we connected on the phone, our conversation was serious and happy. There was no discussion about weather, politics, or trivial tidbits. She told me about her niece, who is living with her and her husband now because the niece’s mother just never adapted to motherhood and moved to Mexico.
The niece had fallen back two grades before moving in with my friend and her husband. She is in sixth grade now and doing well in school. And playing the flute in band.
Love is magnified with gratitude.
Even though we don’t talk with one another often, our love stays uninterrupted, unbroken, and only gets stronger and clearer.
