where i found him, and why i keep searching

i have found him atop a hill in noblesville, indiana during a ben harper concert with some of my best friends.
i have found him in the embrace of a crying baby when i want to weep as well.
i found him in the smile of a gap-toothed homeless man upon the chicago windy streets.
in the story of the mother missing her child in my own small town. 

i have found him in the elderly woman asking for simple directions in a store.
in the bathroom at a stadium.
in the grasping of hands in the car ride home.
in the hospital.
in the notes, the lovely, musical notes of inspiration+voice.
in the sore muscles that keep moving to make a difference.

love always.love true.

i’ve seen the love of god in every.single.day.of.my.life.
and even though i’ve seen him thousands of times, i will not ever stop searching for his goodness. & in that goodness trying to spread the message to love EVERYONE THE SAME for the rest of my finding moments.
love that we will never find the end of.because we won’t.we won’t ever find the end of love.
