    It's All About Love and the Dalai Lama

    Today's Special Tidbit is a Dalai Lama jewel. He nails the reason I'm a romance novelist. Take a look:

    "If a person has never encountered love toward himself or herself from any quarter, it is a very sad thing. But if that person can meet even one person who will show unconditional love - simply acceptance and compassion - if he knows that he is an object of someone else's affection and love, it is bound to have an impact, and this will be appreciated. Because there is a seed in himself, this act of love will start to catalyze or ripen that seed." --- Dalai Lama

    I try to emulate that love through my characters and the stories they share. Books may not be able to substitute for the real thing, but my goal is to give hope that unconditional love is out there. I've always found that kind of compassion, love, and acceptance in the romance novels I've read and want to pass that gift onto my readers along with some sass and laughs.

    For more on this topic, come on over to romancewritersonthejourney.wordpress tomorrow (Thursday, December 4th) where I'm guest blogging on my writing process and inspirations. I'd love to have your comments!

    Sexy, Sassy, Smart Wishes --- D. D. Scott

    There is only one person who can give you unconditional love, Jesus Christ. No human being is truly capable of unconditional love all the time. We aren’t made that way. No matter how hard we try, we always find ourselves being a little selfish, being a tiny bit judgmental and hurt by what other do or don’t do for us. It’s our nature.

    Christ died for every man, woman and child that was ever born and ever will be. He took all of our bad habits and human fallings and placed them on himself. He is the only person who has never let me down, never judges me and loves me with a love that surpasses human understanding.

    Our friends let us down from time to time. Our significant other disappoints us now and again. Even our parents can’t always understand and love us in the way we need them to.

    During this season of love and peace don’t just look at the baby in the manger. Look at Christ who, even though he is God, became man so he could understand us and love us even more. You will never find a greater love.

    Merry Christmas
