Etta James evokes our deep desire of being loved completely and unconditionally. All of us desire connections to other people. We all need to know that we are wanted, with our dreams, schemes, fears, and ambitions, for no other reason than we are who we are.
While we all know this desire, how do we help other people feel this acceptance and love? All too often we get so wrapped up in ourselves, our lives, our needs, and our wants that we miss the opportunity to love others. We miss the opportunity to allow others to experience a Sunday Kind of Love. Maybe if we took more time to love others as they are, then our hurts and troubles would not seem as large. Let us offer to others a Sunday Kind of Love, which is a true connection and love of another person just the way they are.
Let us love others as we are loved by God. Instead of criticisms and judgment, let us try to offer encouragement and support. Instead of censure and ridicule, let us offer compliments and hope. Maybe in our offerings we will find that we are also more completely accepted.
