As I walked the street alone after attending the Holy Mass,
I was amazed by this couple arm in arm with each other
obviously very close and hopefully in love.
Rich or poor, young or old, love knows no boundaries.
A rich guy can fall in love with a poor girl,
or a rich girl can fall in love with a poor guy.
But this couple in ragged clothing is very poor.
As I looked on their images I snapped on my phone,
I was thinking about deleting at first
because it was clearly invasion of their privacy,
but I thought it was something amazing and wonderful
I had to blog about what I witnessed.
They were barefoot and in ragged clothing
clearly showing how poor they were.
Both of them were thin and dirty
indicating being hungry and thirsty were their normal.
There were times when they kissed on the lips while walking
and they didn't care at all even with the few people they passed by.
I watched behind them for few minutes and they were still arm in arm
as they crossed the street and out of my sight.
The clear message here:
The poorest of conditions or the poorest of situations
can never hinder or thwart your need for love.
No one can live happy alone, but if you choose to,
then you should be religious and pious
because God is keeping you company.
Love makes you survive poverty and misery.
What's to complain about being very poor
when you're with someone you love and who loves you back!
What's to be happy about being rich
when you got no one to love and no one to love you back!
I want to write more on the couple above especially about love, sex,
starting a family, family planning, livelihood, parenting, etc.
but I rather let you make comments and share your thoughts.
Just be nice and considerate when you do.
