Reflections Before Bedtime #95

Recently, I found some of T.B. LaBerge’s writings that really touched me. I have featured his quotes on the blog, before. I think his wisdom illustrates the beautiful connection he has with God. His words are always ones that encourage me in my own spirituality.

I really appreciated the following thought:

“Be authentic in the way you live life, talk to those who hurt you. Engage in honesty and love, open up and ask those in your life why they are distant. Life is short, it gets muddied by lies and fear.
Be courageous enough to reach out to others, seek forgiveness and redemption in your community. We have been given an opportunity each day to love those around us, all it takes is one step.
Healing starts with communication, communication comes with humility, and humility only comes when we are willing to lay down our lives for others.
Love right now, not tomorrow or the next day, love in this moment and watch it become something beautiful.”
T.B. LaBerge // Go Now

I really believe in this notion of communication. It’s not so much about honoring our emotions when we communicate and engage, it’s about honoring those around us and ourselves, as people who have value. Communication takes humility and requires understanding. I want to keep learning how I can be a wiser communicator. I want to learn to love better.
