Receive.... I would say that this is the core of what I've been learning here in the US these past few months. I've been learning to just receive love, receive care, and receive them with grace instead of protestations. I think we are all pressed to deserve what we are given... to be loved for our accomplishments. But God's love is not that way. And since I have been slid into a position where I have been loved and cared for by people who really don't know me, I have learned that sometimes that's the way God works. To deny these gifts would also be to deny His Gift of Himself. Undeserved love... it's a good thing. It is humbling, and that can make it hard. But when I see that it is really God who is providing it, it's okay, because it's hard not to be humble when faced with God himself. So, while I know this is a lesson I will have to work on and learn again, I am happy to have learned some small measure of it now. It is a blessing to receive God's love.
