Two "Mirror" Quotes on Love...

I spent some time poking around Robert Rutherford's site the other night.  I listened to one of the songs several times...Grace Triumphs Over Judgement....

Very cool song...that expresses the following....

Grace Triumphs Over Judgement.....peace will win out over war...love annihilates every kind of hate...and hope is victorious ever more. Light will swallow up all darkness. Faith will conquer every fear...prejudice will die as we raise the banner high....
Sin is gone...he is here...peace is here.

 

The song has gone through my head repeatedly for the past couple of days.  Similar to an ear worm...except that ear worms are usually songs you don't like much but, by some cruel quirk of fate, they play on and on in your head.  Similar because the song kept repeating itself over and over....dissimilar (to most of the earworms I get) because  the song is a great song and I like it a lot.  And I think you will too.  And I urge everyone to go have a look see at Robert Rutherford's web page....and blog. 

And the mirror quote on love?  It is a "poem" by Emmet Fox.  I had to dredge it from the archives in my brain (with some help from google) below it follows in it's entirety.

Love Will Conquer
There is no difficulty that enough love will not conquer;
no disease that enough love will not heal;
no door that enough love will not open;
no gulf that enough love will not bridge;
no wall that enough love will not throw down;
no sin that enough love will not redeem . . .
It makes no difference how deeply seated may be the trouble;
how hopeless the outlook;
how muddled the tangle;
how great the mistake.
A sufficient realization of love will dissolve it all.
If only you could love enough you would be the happiest and most powerful being in the world . . .
Emmet Fox

Love never fails when it is accompanied by perseverance.

Yes...it is that perseverance thing that I find the most difficult aspect of unconditional love.
