I love this poster. It reminds me of two things:
1) I choose to love. God asks me to love as He loves, and that is a choice. Some days it is easy for me to love others, and on the off days, it is hard for me to love. Loving is intentional, learning to align my will with others, to hope and pray for their best not mine. I look forward to the day where loving is completely my nature -- that I cannot do anything but love.
2) God loves -- and every day He continues to love us. G. K. Chesterton said, "But perhaps God is strong enough to exult in monotony. It is possible that God says every morning, 'Do it again' to the sun; and every evening, 'Do it again' to the moon. It may not be automatic necessity that makes all daises alike; it may be that God makes every daisy separately; but has never got tired of making them.... The repetition in Nature may not be a mere recurrence; it may be a theatrical encore." Every day He loves you and me -- it isn't boring or forced.
