I was looking back on that moment and realized something. In that moment that I was so brave, I was happy. I was filled with just pure joy after greeting a really good friend. I have my random moments out of character, but I needed that moment to realize that I've changed - in a good way. I mean, before I never would have done that. The moment was still all me, but the happiness propagated my intention to give two random guys a hug because one said he needed one. I don't know what they thought, probably that I was crazy, but I guess I will never know. That's fine by me. I don't regret it one bit. Who knows, maybe he really did need a hug, and a random girl on the TCU campus gave him one. There's a story for him.
That's how we should react to God's love for us. We are his messengers of love. We are the ones who help show and bring his love to people on earth. What if we were so filled with that message that we couldn't help but just share it? With anyone - a stranger, a friend, a younger person. It was all a reaction on my part. It was a moment of bravery where my logic did not kick in (for once in my life). We should always be looking for people to share that stuff with. I wish I did it more. Maybe that's something I can work on this year. I need to work on sharing the greatest love anywhere. Anyone need a hug? :)
