When troubles come, when people fail one another, when there is pain and suffering, there are those that respond with love. They put their own hearts on the line to give of themselves, to sacrifice for the benefit of another. When hurtful things are said, only love can forgive and forget. When someone is falling apart and coming undone, only love can reach out, provide support and hold them together. When evil forces attack, only love can shield our hearts from the devastation and provide protection. When challenges drag someone into a deep, dark pit, it is love that can bring hope and help so they can rise out of it. Those Love Warriors mend the broken, heal the hurting, give encouragement to the downtrodden, comfort the lonely, save those ready to give up. The world is a better place because of the Heroes of the Heart that see a problem and do things to make it right. Love in action builds hospitals, schools, orphanages in poor countries. Love in action is talking and listening to someone to draw them away from the edge. Love in action is visiting with someone who is alone, finding ways to feed the hungry, sharing the Promises of God with those that feel life has no meaning. The greatest way to live is to love God with all your heart and to love others as you love yourself. That is what Love Warriors do. They are Heroes of the Heart. They love when it is hard, they love when they are sad, they love through it all. Their being makes it better.
Thank God for the Heroes of the Heart, the Love Warriors, of the past, present and future. They bring the light when it is dark. They bring warmth when it is cold. They reflect the great love that God has for each and every one of us. Thank you & Amen
