Love's Atmosphere

Hill Country Reflections, diptych 12x12" each, oil by S'zanne Reynolds

"Love is the emblem of eternity; it confounds all notion of time."
~Anna Louise de Stael

"In the comfort of Your presence, God, I am enfolded in love. Your love conveys total and unconditional acceptance of me. Knowing that I need never do anything to earn Your love is a tremendous catalyst for letting all the love I possibly can live out through me. Because I do, I express the sacredness of Your love.

What a relief I feel in Your presence, God. Love rushes in and through me to heal every wound of body and emotion.When everything and everyone seems to be pressing in on me, Your love acts as a buffer that keeps me from being overwhelmed. I can breathe deeply and think clearly as I make decisions in peaceful moments or in a crisis.

God, You are my constant source of life and love, so I can do and do move forward. Knowing that I am living in an atmosphere of Your love, I am comforted."

~from Daily Word for Women by Zuck, Wright and Meyer
