infinite love

"A man and a woman come together for life, not just because they experience deep love for each other, but because they believe that God loves each of them with an infinite love and has called them to each other to be living witnesses of that love."
{Henri Nouwen}

I woke up this morning burdened to pray for myself and others to resist reverting to living life alone. It was a thought referring to our tendency to close our hearts and keep our burdens to ourselves. Over the course of today and through conversations with friends, I've settled on one thought... I just don't think we were meant to be alone.
