Love in the midst of Darkness

Love rocks. Where there is love, there is no darkness


This is a lovely quote. One day at a school event, there was a station to make bookmarks. I picked a stamp and this quote was on that stamp. There is a lot of truth in that quote even though it doesn’t seem like that.

Love is the most powerful force of all. Even though there is always darkness, there is always less when there is love. Feeling love is important in life because it helps us thrive in dark times. Love makes us survive fearful and scary times in life. It still is hard to describe how there is no darkness when it comes to love. But I understand the importance of love. Everyone needs to feel love because we are social creatures and feel a need for intimacy. Love comes in many different forms and each one is so beautiful.

Love is even stronger than fear. God is love and he loves everyone unconditionally. We need to feel loved by God, our friends and family and others. If we feel unloved, than our lives could feel darker and even harder. That would makes us feel very alone.

Below is a blog post I wrote about the types of love in Les Mis. It is directly related to this post because Les Mis is covered with different kinds of love along with hope, compassion, and forgiveness.

What you think about the quote I talked about?

Seasons of Love

Dear Angel, Collins, Joanne, Maureen, Mark, Roger, and Mimi,

I want you to know that I love the musical you all are in. Rent is one of the most meaningful musicals of my life. Your story is quite sad, but still so full of life. Every single one of you know how to live life to the fullest and treat every moment as if its your last. I love the message you give to your fans. I like how you teach people how to measure life. You show how precious life is through your signature song, “Seasons of Love”. That reminds me that life is short, but I like all you guys say that the best way to measure life is through love. I first fell in love with your story four years ago when I started to listen to your songs on Pandora. Once I fell in love with the music, I fell in love with the show. I have been able to see your story unfold on a filmed adaption of the stage show. That production was so well done and you guys became so real to me.

No Day But Today
