<3 LOVE <3


I have been thinking a lot lately about a post I had read several months ago and I couldn’t remember where I had seen it. I kept thinking bout this one thing that was said about LOVE. I found the post here Canadian Mommy Time, She nominated me with a bloggy award and could never get onto the computer to nominate others or re-post her award (Thank you btw). In her post she named several things that people didn’t know about her. Number 6 is the post that I remember. 6)  I save the word ‘love’ for special occasions so that it is special.  I enjoy food, I don’t love it.  ’Love’ changed meanings for me when I met my husband.  I knew I wanted to express my love for him differently then the way I appreciated food or my favourite dress. These few words has touched me and changed the way I look at things in a huge way. I think “LOVE” was one of my most used words. I loved this, that, you, it, everything… In reality I didn’t and I don’t. I just used the word to express my extreme liking to. Which is a lot. I LOVE MY HUSBAND AND MY CHILDREN. I LOVE OUR HOME not our house. I LOVE OUR FAMILY.

 

Love is defined as:

love

[luhv]  Show IPA noun, verb, loved, lov·ing.

noun

1. a profoundly tender, passionate affection for another person.
2. a feeling of warm personal attachment or deep affection, as for a parent, child, or friend.
3. sexual passion or desire.
4. a person toward whom love is felt; beloved person;sweetheart.
5. (used in direct address as a term of endearment, affection,or the like): Would you like to see a movie, love?

Ok, did you see anywhere in there where it mentioned objects? Love is focused on people not objects. Makes you think, doesn’t it? I never thought about how much I slung the word around. I abused the meaning and made it numb.

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10 but when completeness comes,what is in part disappears. 11 When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me. 12 For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.

13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

 

I will no longer love worldly things. I love what matters most. My family…
