Thoughtful Thursday: Commitment

“If we commit ourselves to one person for life, this is not, as many people think, a rejection of freedom; rather, it demands the courage to move into all the risks of freedom, and the risk of love which is permanent; into that love which is not possession but participation.”
Madeleine L’Engle

  1. What an amazing quote. When it is true love then you can never lose your freedom but gain the freedom to travel another world, a new bigger world with new options and possibilities. When it is love then there is no possession but the joy of watching a loved person also deciding to enter that world with you freely!
