I remember seeing the little cartoon type characters with the phrase, "Love is" and then some cute little ending to the sentence.
I feel that often times we use the word love without thought to what it really means - I love this candy bar, I love your shoes, I love.....
4 Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud 5 or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. 6 It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. 7 Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.
13 Three things will last forever—faith, hope, and love—and the greatest of these is love.
I Corinthians 13: 4-7 & 13
It's a good idea to be reminded of this and to check myself to be sure that this type of love is growing in my life!
Happy Valentine's Day!
