“Do not be dismayed…”

Do not be dismayed by the brokenness of the world.

All things break. And all things can be mended.

Not with time, as they say, but with intention.

So go. Love intentionally, extravagantly, unconditionally.

The broken world waits in darkness for the light that is you.

    Oh, Paula, I have read and reread your comment. Love your idea of playing with this intentional, extravagant and unconditional love in all of its expansive wonder. I can only imagine how you will create such majesty. I so appreciate how you look at the world. Thanks so much for sharing.

    To love intentionally, extravagantly, unconditionally – I’m going to play with what that looks like, what that feels like, how it manifests. Rather how I make that manifest in my life. Wow! I’m up for this. Stand by.. .
    Thanks, Adele

    This is beautiful and important.
    And yes, all things can be healed, and all can be mended (though not all will be as if nothing had happened, it can become all that happened and all that has healed and therefore something new and something older, both. May light bring light.
