Five Minute Friday: Hard Love

From  Gypsy Mama's blog with who I am linking up or should say trying something new.

  • Got five minutes? Let’s write. Let’s write in shades of real and true and unscripted.
  • Let’s just write and not worry if it’s just right or not.

  • Write for 5 minutes flat for pure unedited love of the written word.


There is always this talk about real love or true love.  However love is love, a decision we take.  This love is to be ‘hard’ love as it will withstand time and everything that comes within the first day to the end. 
What do I mean? Well look at the definition

Hard =  Not easily penetrated, cut, or separated into parts; not yielding to pressure; firm; solid; compact and opposed to soft

That is the kind of love I want in my life, one that is not separated into parts or that yields to pressure.  How about having love that is firm and solid towards loving me?  Many times we have to give what we want in return but on this Good Friday we can just be who we are receiving the greatest Love ever.  By the Grace of God we have been given this kinda of hard love that resides within us so that we too can give to others.   Take a moment to not see the word hard as a gift for Jesus died for us so that He will never be separated from us!  If the pressure of the cross or death did not waiver Jesus in His love then know that nothing we do can make Him go soft in His love for us. Now that is hard love! 



  1. You're a great writer! Your newest follower...thanks for visiting!

  2. I really loved reading about your take on hard love, as you gave a different perspective than what I normally think about for the word hard. This hard love you described is amazing.
