To find love and extend love to others. To accept the love of God and everything He wants in my life. To be the person God wants me to be and share His love and encouragement to those around me. 

Let Go: 
To let go of the pain I had seen in my parents divorce. To let go of the hurt I saw in my family and friends love relationships. Let Go and trust God with all of my heart and my future. To let God break the strongholds in my heart and mind concerning love and life. 

Reason why: 
I was an adult child of divorce. I had a self protected heart. I feared getting hurt like I saw from my family and friends relaitonships. I was exposed to dysfunction in marital and family relationships within my family and my friends family. I thought if I didn't get involved with a guy then I wouldn't get hurt. This was my mindset for many years.

"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy. It does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.

What I have learned:

1. Love is the answer to everything. 

2. God's love can fill the emptiest places in our heart and mind. 

3. God loves us no matter what and is bigger than the oceans           water.

4. There is no fear in love. 

5. Celebrate all the small things, small victories, small             accomplishments, holidays, good news and anniversaries. In the     end they are the big things.
