I DID IT!....For 2013, finally, all pomp and circumstance of the year end traditions were eliminated, except I cooked a pot of black eye peas for New Year’s Day. Good luck? Good stuff!
For 35+ years I have been shedding end of year holiday rituals and traditions from my life. That is, redefining what the season means to me. My primary focus was family, but I couldn’t appreciate the commercial intensity surrounding Christmas. I experimented with Kwanzaa, New Year’s and other celebrations or services; and completely avoided the shopping frenzies.
All along the intent has been to create a new tradition. Step 1: Sow Love. With that in mind, I send this Happy Valentine’s Day message to you: Johnetta Loves You. I honor the Christ Spirit in you.
þ Philos love - a love based on friendship between two people. YES
þ Agape - unconditional love. YES
Love Is the Greatest Gift
13 I may speak in ·different languages [L tongues; 12:10, 29,30] of people or even angels. But if I do not have love, I am only a ·noisy [resounding] ·bell [gong] or a ·crashing [clanging]cymbal. 2 I may have the gift of prophecy. I may understand all ·the secret things of God [L mysteries] and have all knowledge, and I may have faith so great I can move mountains. But even with all these things, if I do not have love, then I am nothing.3 I may give away everything I have, and I may even give my body ·as an offering to be burned [L to be burned].[a] But I gain nothing if I do not have love.
4 Love is patient and kind. Love is not ·jealous [envious], it does not brag, and it is not ·proud [arrogant; conceited; puffed up]. 5 Love is not ·rude [disrespectful], is not ·selfish [self-serving], and ·does not get upset with others [is not easily provoked/angered]. Love does not ·count up [keep a record of]wrongs that have been done. 6 Love ·takes no pleasure [does not rejoice] in ·evil [wrongdoing; injustice] but rejoices over the truth. 7 Love ·patiently accepts all things [T bears all things; or always protects], ·always trusts [T believes all things], ·always hopes [T hopes all things], and ·always endures [T endures all things]….

We need wait no longer to claim the highest and best that life has to offer, our God-given birthright of peace and freedom. It is time now to forgive….
To forgive is to live in conscious unity with Love, dissolving any sense of separation.
