I customarily say I love you, Lord. I do. But words need to be acted on, less they remain just words. There are times I do and times I don't. Love in action needs to be a conscious decision expressed in each present moment. This takes effort, but one that will bear fruit. The fruit is greater transformation into your image and likeness. This may be what St. Paul meant when he wrote: "I live now not I but Christ Jesus in me." You don't tell me you love me without showing it in some concrete way. Your love for me always comes from your being, who you are. That is the love I desire to show you, from my being, who I am, my true self, the self you accept and love.
