~ The Need to Surrender ~

"The need to surrender is one of the great paradoxes of love. Surrender may seem like giving up. Or giving in. But in reality we are strengthened when we actively choose to make ourselves vulnerable. We are empowered by sharing our deepest self with another person, offering him or her our heart, our soul, our life. Surrender is an act of free will. A sacred trust." ~ Ellen Sue Stern


I believe something of Red Roses. When seen just right, when the view or smell catches one or many just right, we are at that moment understanding the feeling of surrender and awe. The exact surrender, awe, and vulnerability that intimacy and love is built upon.

Hope this, in any way possible, gets you closer to a Sacred Trust of Surrender and Ultimately, Love.

Have a Great Wednesday and commit some little acts of surrender. (and yes, I am taking my own suggestions).
