Truth is often staring us in the face

My Lord is a jealous Lord.

We are a jealous people.

The difference between these two jealousies is striking.

My jealousy is based on me, my selfishness, my emptiness.

His jealousy is based on Him, His love, His desire for me, His fullness.

My jealousy is the anti-thesis of love.

His jealousy is the evidence of His love.

Well, it does depend on the type of jealousy. If your hubby is on the phone with his mistress, you're entitled. ;o)

Happy V and Lupercalia Day, Katie!

We tend to forget that jealousy is a good thing.

I hate to even say it, but isn't it supposed to be "jealousy"?
