Though we came by different roads,Now we walk together.
Stay beside me all our days,
Strangers never more.
Through the cool of summer rains,
By the heartside fire
Here I’ll be with you when nothing remains
I am home to stay.
Love is the answer to so many questionsNow I know, and I can stop my endless wandering
Love gives the meaning to my world
I see the answer now
When I heard this during communion, I suddenly missed singing with SFC Chorale Manila. Kahit pa nakasama ko lang silang kumanta last month sa wedding ni Ate Nillian. :) But more than that, I felt a certain kilig that can only come from knowing that I am God's beloved. Mas masarap siyang sabihin at pakinggan sa Filipino: pinakamamahal.
And just recently, I have come to realize that indeed "mahal magmahal". Love will cost you a lot - and if it's not true love, most likely it will leave you broke and without anything to lose anymore. But if it is something real - a love that comes from the ultimate source - then every amount spent will surely be worth it. :)
In the words of Fr. Pedro Arrupe, SJ:
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.

As for me, I have fallen in love and am staying in love with the One who loved me first. ♥
At wala ng mas nakakakilig pang kwento sa kwento ng pag-ibig Niya sa akin. :)
