Vince from You, me and this world stopped by Song of Virginity to jot down a few words about a love given and received.
Life without love is really unbearable. I have been blessed to travel on every continent and to many countries, and one thing I’ve seen no matter what language, color or creed, everyone or at least almost everyone, wants to love and be loved.
Therefore this is God.
While living as a single in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, I met Suva.
She was a wonderful young woman that I fell totally in love with. We spent most of our days glowing in the gift of love we found in each other and in God, and we found that this love was so bright that others saw it too. We were together for 8 months. When we went to file for a marriage license, I was asked to show my immigration papers and for a financial status. Since I was a missionary my papers were in order but I had very little money. I was given three days to leave the country.
My heart was breaking, Suva tried to get a visa and she too didn’t have enough money to get the papers she needed. I went to Bolivia and we wrote for five months. We never got back together. I thought that I would die.
Now many many years later I have a wonderful wife and wonderful life.
The love for Suva will always be in my heart as love never fails or leaves us. It’s eternal.
