The Sunday Sessions: Edition 2.18.18
Sunday is traditionally a day in which we slow down, take time for reflection, and recharge. Every Sunday, I will share a poem or excerpt that will make us think, wonder, or even laugh as we prepare ourselves for the upcoming week.

Question of the Week
It is snowing here on this winter Sunday. The winter season can feel lonely and cold as the grey days drag on and the bitter wind tries to slink its way through unsealed cracks and into coats not fully zipped. It’s a season in which we put up defenses to protect ourselves. But is the armor we are wearing keeping out more than the weather?
We all have a love language that we prefer. Mine is words of affirmation. But if I only allow myself to perceive love in this one way, I will fail to see the full spectrum of love being given to me. It’s important for me to make sure that the walls I put up for protection don’t inadvertently exclude love in a different language.
How are others showing you love? Are you missing acts of love because they aren’t in your preferred love language?
