God is love. God created us to love. God calls us to love.
It really does break down that simply.
And when we fall away from that - when we get caught up in egos, and agenda, and aspirations that wander from that calling - it becomes stress, and angst, and annoyance, and ugly.
God creates beauty. Beauty is love. Just look around.
I know - maybe TOO simple, and that's why we do our best to complicate it.
Maybe it's why we love our dogs so much. They are - all love. Unconditional love. One of the best examples of God in action.
I told you it was simple.
