hallelujah

"Love is not a victory march
It's a cold and it's a broken Hallelujah,"

- Leonard Cohen

Jesus, out of His unconditional love became our filth on that cross so that we would not have to die. I don't know if that's what Cohen had in mind while writing this beautiful song but to me, it gives me a picture of what it must have been like while Jesus was 'dead'. He was cold and broken and His own Dad had just rejected Him.

So many Christian's have it wrong. Love is not fuzzy a feeling you get when you hold that special someone's hand or realizing that you've fallen madly in 'love' with someone else. To be a Christian extremist for a moment, love is dying to save those you care about the most. (Read the Crucifixion account)

Anyways, take some of your 'valuable' time today to thank the One who made it possible for you to even live and breathe.
