Love: Not What We Thought It Was

We usually recoil from the cost of love, thinking it is an alien substance, but it is the essence of love.  This is strangely encouraging because when the pressure of love builds, we think that somehow we showed up for the wrong life.  This isn't what we signed up for.  But no, this is the divine path called love.

--Paul Miller, A Loving Life: In a World of Broken Relationships, chapter 7
Strangely encouraging, indeed.
