Fall in Love

It will decide what will get you out of bed in the morning.


Yesterday, I wrote a post about falling in love with God.  It reminded me of this poem, which is ironic, because it's a poem I read at the beginning of my year before I arrived in Costa Rica.  I must've been thinking about it subconsciously throughout my year...

"Fall in Love"

Attributed to Fr. Pedro Arrupe, SJ (1907–1991)
Nothing is more practical than
finding God, than
falling in Love
in a quite absolute, final way.
What you are in love with,
what seizes your imagination, will affect everything.
It will decide
what will get you out of bed in the morning,
what you do with your evenings,
how you spend your weekends,
what you read, whom you know,
what breaks your heart,
and what amazes you with joy and gratitude.
Fall in Love, stay in love,
and it will decide everything.
