Maya Angelou “Touched by Angel” highlights the power of love so beautifully:
We, unaccustomed to courage
exiles from delight
live coiled in shells of loneliness
until love leaves its high holy temple
and comes into our sight
to liberate us into life.
and in its train come ecstasies
old memories of pleasure
ancient histories of pain.
Yet if we are bold,
love strikes away the chains of fear
from our souls.
We are weaned from our timidity
In the flush of love’s light
we dare be brave
And suddenly we see
that love costs all we are
and will ever be.
Yet it is only love
which sets us free.
And we thank you, our IC customers, for loving us and sending us your love notes! They brightened our day. We have chosen the two winners!
“To start this year off in a loving way I’m participating in the Pay-it-Forward Initiative… The first FIVE people who comment on this status with “I’m in” will receive a surprise from me at some point in this calendar year – anything from a book, a ticket, a visit, something home-grown or -made, a postcard, absolutely any surprise. There will be no warning, and it will happen when the mood comes over me, and I find something that I believe would suit you and make you happy. These five people must make the same offer in their FB status and distribute their own joy. Simply copy this text onto your profile. Who will be the lucky 5?”
AND OUR WINNER IS….Suzanne Heneghan, who wrote this touching commentary. (receiving the IC Love gift set)
I would give this gift of Intentional Chocolate to my boyfriend on Valentine’s as a gesture of deep love – not only romantic love, but a deep, spiritual love. We are all energy…and the chocolate is imbued with positive thoughts and affirmations. As a spiritual person, my gifts to him reflect the positive intentions and wishes from deep within my heart and soul. This is perfect! What a beautiful gesture to offer him – the vibration of optimal health, especially since he has experienced a heart attack recently. Good health is truly our greatest wealth and such a blessing.
