Love Will Remain

for some reason this really struck me today...

Hope and faith will both come to an end when we die. But love will remain. Love is eternal. Love comes from God and returns to God. When we die, we will lose everything that life gave us except love. The love with which we lived our lives is the life of God within us. It is the divine, indestructible core of our being. This love not only will remain but will also bear fruit from generation to generation. - Henri Nouwen

(I receive these daily Henri Nouwen meditations in my email inbox - just another attempt to poke myself in the eye daily with Godstuff...)
