I Think I Have Something To Say...

It's late night, early morning 3 am.

I'm feeling in love, smitten even and I'm not even in a relationship. It's the weirdest thing, but I think the chemicals in body don't realize that there's not a man reciprocating the same emotion towards me. Nonetheless, I feel a bit like I'm on cloud nine-not that I know what cloud eight or ten feel like. But nine seems just perfect to say right now.

I just spent an evening with a group of friends. We ate, we laughed. Mostly we laughed. It feels good to let your hair down, to feel like you can be yourself, because it feels like family--in the best sense of the word.

I'm reminded of this verse in the Bible about how we will know that God is even real---by the way we love each other. I felt a little bit of that statement tonight. It was like embracing love and experiencing it all at the same time.

There's going to be more of those moments for you and I in 2008. Love won't simply be a concept or a theoretical statement, or some ethereal thing we can't relate to or partake in. This year, you and I will allow ourselves to be loved. We're moving past our hurt, discouragement, bitterness, sadness, and depression...and we are now walking in the wisdom of learning from our mistakes, or simply learning in general. And with that understanding comes freedom. And in perfect love, there is no fear.

So what I'm trying to say is: The love revolution has begun. And it will change everything.
