Greater Love…

Greater Love..

“Sacrifice…should be done from love…from necessity…it should be done for people who need your strength because they don’t have enough of their own.” ~Veronica Roth

Tomorrow is Memorial Day in my country, a day when we honor those who have given their lives in service to us. It’s a time when we hear and repeat stories of sacrifice, of courage rooted in love, not for self but for others. Why do these stories move us? Because we know instinctively that without such sacrifices, we would have no present. And without the ultimate sacrifice, we would have no future.

“For God so loved the world…”

    💜 SomeTimes “sacrifice” is NOT!!! just “Death” EveryOne; some of Us ARE Willing To Let Go of EveryThing and EveryOne so Those We Love May Prosper in The Way They Desire while We Adapt to Living Differently WithOut Them, We ARE The Living Angels
