There is a language which crosses all cultures and nationalities. It may have different names or actions but the meaning is the same. It is lived by all ages and generations.
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!

This is so true. Love has its own language and unfortunately sometimes it can be foreign to us. I think you thought this out and worded it well. Keep writing.

TRUE! So very true. Love is a foreign language and not all speak it nor comprehend it unless they love God. Love of the world is not love in the truest sense. It is lust. A different take on subject but one that is so very, very true. Good job and thanks for sharing.

it is interesting how many writers have written about that foreign language of love :-) another interesting and well written factual exposition xx

Yes, the language of love is truly foreign to many people. Without God, it is difficult to really love. What many people call love is really a selfish emotion they feel when it suits them. You have conveyed very nicely the idea of the language of love, the Language of the Heart.
