The Kiss

 The young woman lies quietly, her face post-operative, her mouth twisted in Palsy, some what clownish yet sad. A tiny twig of the facial nerve, the one to the muscles of her mouth, has been severed. She will stay like this from now on. Although all was done in proper order, all that could be done, yet to remove the Tumour from her Cheek the little nerve had to be cut.

 Her young Husband is in the room he gazes down on her, she whispers I will always be this way, but he just smiles.

“I like it ” he says… it is kind of cute.

  He kisses her crooked mouth Lovingly twisting his own lips to accommodate her, to show her that their kiss still has heart  passion that nothing can change or diminish.

  A True Story by Richard Selzer (condensed)

 They say that Love is blind…

But True Love sees all the flaws clearly but continues to Love regardless.

  2. True love does not come by finding the perfect person, but by learning to see an imperfect person perfectly. Great post Anne

      Yes so True pureheart33 God’s Love is so different from our fleshy Love and sometimes we are blessed to see and experience it when the Holy Spirit is working in a person’s life but we can all have God’s Love if we ask for it and believe we have received it and then choose to walk in it by the empowering of the Spirit, it’s not Saccharin sweet that leaves a bitter after taste or short lived, it’s real and pure when it is perfected and we are Born again and everlasting .

      Thank you for commenting it’s very much appreciated – Christian Love Anne.
