Long Distance Love Continues…
Larrie and I have had to be apart for quite some time and today , having just missed Valentine’s Day, which is when we usually do what we do best , love songs and duets. It’s also Larrie’s birthday this Friday and I am already saddened at not being able to be with him for it.
So, I made him this video from my photos and my own music
A classic song of love and the challenges that must be overcome in order to have that love come into fullness.
The song reflects the level of divine connection that exists in covenant love, beyond our physical limitations and the requirements sometimes existing in our lives, that we cannot simply ignore. In the novel series, “Escape To Ecclesia”, this ‘separation’ is depicted as multi-layered but is also overcome on all levels through the knowledge that love is more than merely being physically present. It knows no bondage to time, nor dictated to by distance. Ecclesia presents this love as being “In the [LIMINAL] Space Between”.
Liminal meaning being part of two or more realms, yet in crossing thresholds of all, belonging specifically to none. E.g. the stretch of sand that is beach at low tide, and ocean at high tide is neither truly beach nor ocean, but a unique space of its own because it is both.
It is the point where things meet and fuse together.
Relationships are all about liminal communion. The way of a man with a woman is this kind of fusion. A baby in his mother’s womb is both his own being and part of hers. Likewise, when nursed. True and deep connection intellectually, creatively, spiritually and /or emotionally is also a fusion of souls.
We are desperately lonely without these connections. Superficial and shallow games will never answer the deep drive for union. and communion and belonging
We meet God in the ‘space between’, in the realm of the Spirit—and nothing else has the power to fully satisfy us with lasting goodness the way an encounter with God does.
