BUT, LOVE?


My mama told me a long time ago that love hides a mulitude of sins...

Honey Hush...

I had a brush with that this past week,

Someone who I love, love, love,

Sent me a message,

And the part of the message that caused me to reel was this,

I LOVE YOU, BUT...

Oh heck, the one thing I don't want or need is But Love,

Because But Love is filled with excuses and conditions,

Such as I love you, but, if you disagree with me, I might not love you:

Or,

I love you, but if you aren't willing to support my bad habits,

Or,

I love you, but if you don't cosign on my madness...

You get where I am going...

My thing is this if I love you, I love you, no if ands or buts about it,

However,

Loving you does not mean I agree with you,

It does not mean that if I see you wrong, I won't say you wrong, especially if you have placed yourself at my largesse...

And it certainly does not mean,

That I will allow you to say anything to me,

Just because you feel like you can,

Heck to the naw!

That message stung like alcohol in an open cut,

But you know what,

Just like alcohol in an open cut,

Once the burning stopped,

The healing began,

The wound was freshly cleaned,

and the skin started to tighten around it again,

And most importantly I learned that this was one of those bought lessons,

Because this person was someone who I pretended was different than I knew they were,

And our relationship had mostly been based on me defending their mess,

As such I had made it that I didn't really know where I stood,

Okay, yes I did,

That is why I did the things I did,

Hoping the day would never come that I would have to deal with it,

But it did come and God opened my eyes,

And showed me,

That it was time to stop the foolishness,

And allow this person to do what they wanted with their But Love,

And that all I had to do was continue to love 'em, pray for 'em, wish 'em well,

And allow God to work out the rest...


Amen...

angelia,

You know what they say, "BUT" is the verbal eraser. Anything said before it has just been deleted.
