It even was alive before life existed. To some this is a foreign language. Yet one that can be learned.
Some times in our culture it can seem foreign. We can be so focused on doing our job well, getting ahead, and become so stressed this language escapes us and isnít even in our thoughts.
This language can be expressed with a smile or hug. Music can embrace it, as well as art, poetry, and dance. Some people learn this language through, prayer, meditation, Bible, spiritual retreats, and by being mindful of creation.
This language can be learned yet is actually within each of us. Even the most hardened criminal at one time knew this language in some form. But then their hearts turned away from this way of living.
This language is most helpful when someone is hurting or alone. It can sooth the longing and provide serenity to the grieving soul. The pain might still be there, but at least they know they arenít alone.
You might wonder what this language is. This foreign and strange language that has all this power and can calm the heart. This is the language of love. It is foreign while at the same time being very real to each of us especially during Advent and Christmas. May we all listen and live the language of love!
