Love is beautiful. Love is sharing. Love is the giving and taking two people who feel so deeply about one another. Love is sensitive. Love is overwhelming. Love is the most important emotion one can have. But love is not always simple. Love is not always uncomplicated. Love may not always be easy but it is always more than worthwhile.
Love is being happy for the other person when they are happy; being sad for the person when they are sad; being together in good times and being together in bad times. Love is the source of strength.
Love is being honest with yourself at all times; being honest with the other person at all times telling, listening, respecting the truth and never pretending. Love is the source of reality.
Love is an understanding so complete that you feel as if you are a part of the other person accepting the other person just the way they are and not trying to change them to be something else. Love is the source of unity.
Love is the freedom to pursue your own desires while sharing your experiences with the other person the growth of one individual alongside of and together with the growth of another individual. Love is the source of success.
Love is the excitement of planning things together the excitement of doing things together. Love is the source of the future.
Love is giving and taking in a daily situation being with each other’s needs and desires. Love is the source of sharing.
Love is knowing that the other person will always be with you regardless of what happens missing the other person when they are away but remaining near in heart at all times. Love is the source of security.
Love is the source of life.
An unknown author attempted to define “What is love”, a beautiful description that is based on the passage found in Paul’s first letter to the Corinthians, Chapter thirteen:
“Love is not passion, Love is not pride; Love is a journeying side by side. Not of the breezes, not of the gale; Love is the steady set of the seal. Deeper than ecstasy, sweeter than light, Born in the sunshine, born in the light. Flaming in victory, stronger in loss, Love is a sacrament made for a cross.”
Life can be a perpetual romance. It’s true that life changes, but when two really love each other, that love deepens with the changes of life. It matures and enriches life instead of wearing thin like the rings that first were slipped on a finger. Love must be nurtured and kept alive by acts of kindness and thoughtfulness.
Life is short. Don’t forget to say I love you to the one person in this world you value most. Know the importance of repeating what he or she already knows.
