My Dearest

I saw this quote on Girl Talk Blog... and it was just what I needed to read :)

When I have learnt to love God better than my earthly dearest, I shall love my earthly dearest better than I do now.

Insofar as I learn to love my earthly dearest at the expense of God and instead of God, I shall be moving towards the state in which I shall not love my earthly dearest at all.

When first things are put first, second things are not suppressed but increased. 
~ C. S. Lewis,Letters of C.S. Lewis (8 November, 1952)

Love that from C.S. Lewis...if you get a chance, read his biography, specifically during the period when his wife Joy was diagnosed with cancer...amazing.
