Unwrapping the Best Gift Ever!



Most of the time I forgot to take pictures the past few days, 
simply enjoying the moments we planned and prepped for
and realizing how Love is the best gift of all,
even if it wields a double-edged blade!
...and wow, I love these people so much it hurts!(universal love-language of parents:)




Love; most estimable treasure
Best gift to give and possess
Begetter of pain and pleasure
Wonder, longing, happiness

Love; both fulfillment and hunger
Dream and duty intertwined
Summer’s winter, winter’s summer
Disappointment silver-lined

Love, an ear of kind compassion
Love, it cheers through common cares
Love, God’s mercy without ration
Love breaks hearts that love repairs

Love; life's universal mother
Love, a family of friends
Where we are all sister, brother
Where love forgives and amends

Love, ah, who can live without it?
Who could bear life’s fare alone?
Love, let’s do something about it
And simply love everyone

  “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”
Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart 
and with all your soul and with all your mind.’  
This is the first and greatest commandment. 
 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’
  All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”

 Matt 22:36-40
