Absence makes the heart grow fonder II
Caritas enim Christi urget nos 2 Cor. 5:14
For the charity of Christ presseth us ...
Here's the link to a post I wrote on the same topic sometime late in August last year. Absence makes the heart grow fonder.
Absence does indeed make the heart grow fonder. First hand experience has taught me that. I'm sure all of you know what it means when absence makes the heart grow fonder :) I have been thinking alot lately, more than I should, I think ;) perhaps thats the reason why I'm feeling so tired every morning, for most of the thinking comes at night when im already so drained from the day's events, together with the "drowsy-inducing" anti-histamines, its no wonder i have trouble keeping my eyes open in the morning. bleahs. : (*yawn) don't worry, im perfectly normal and healthy, just a little itchy. :p
Enough of all my nonsense above, which I don't know why I even bother putting up ;) (most probably to tell you that i'm human too) Here are my thoughts as to why the clichéd phrase is so true, so real for me.
Fortunate indeed shall I be, if I lose all to gain Thee, my God, my treasure, my love, my all!
Read the red words in the picture on your right. The psalmist accurately wrote out what Jesus went through during His Agony in the garden. My Heart hath expected reproach and misery: and I looked for one that would grieve together with Me, but there was none: and for one that would comfort Me, and I found none. Read here, from the Mystical City of God to get more insights into Jesus's prayer in the garden and how Mary joined therein.
