The Book of Love: Point by Point
Our country is full of famous quotes by the trailblazers that have made this country great. As a result, we all live by quotes in one form or another. From love to heartaches to sorrow and pain. It may be good advice from your mother, a dear friend, or someone famous, but in the end it's all the same—a quote about how to live your life. Although you may find yourself or your situation in a number of these quotes, they are not intended to be about any one person, but about love in general. Each one is a short story in itself and may answer many of your heartfelt questions about love and life. When it comes to love, everybody has a mountain to climb and a devil in the details. After reading and reliving these moments of truth, I'd like to ask you this question. You have to honestly grade yourself, “On a scale of 1 to 10, what grade would you deserve on the grand stage of love?”
“The Old Country Church” is a short story about change in the church. It's filled with its own “good, bad, and ugly characters.” Since this country is made up with change, I suppose it's a good thing. However, in this case, I have my doubts. I think you will be left with the thought, “There must be a better way to reach our goal!” If you were the pastor, what would you do about a troublemaker in your church? I'll leave the answer up to you since some people look at the greater good differently than I do. In the meantime, love a lot, be happy, and love yourself first.
