Love Comes Naturally


“No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.”

― Nelson Mandela



Here in America, it is the week of Thanksgiving........a holiday that seems to be losing its place and importance because the retail world hasn't figured out how to turn a day of Thanksgiving into a cash cow.  For the past couple of nights I have posted quotes about love, I will continue doing so this whole week.........for love and thankfulness are partners.

My friends Kaye and Jamie just got back from a holiday in Africa.  Their pictures and stories were amazing.  Their trip was life changing, it was obvious as they shared their thoughts and feelings with us over dinner last night........with tears, and voices that cracked.....it was apparent, that theirs was not an ordinary vacation.

I love this quote by Nelson Mandela, because I believe it is true......I believe our hearts were meant to be vessels that were to be filled with love........maybe that is why heart disease is the number #1 killer here in America, the hate that grows here in our hearts is destroying them..... physically and emotionally.
