Love Is…..

Love is a strong word.  Probably the strongest of words.  Don’t believe me, ask John the Baptist.  A king loved his wife so much that she asked for poor John’s head and the king did not hesitate to provide her with it.  YIKES!  Marc Anthony and Cleopatra so loved each other that they allowed their countries to go to war with each other before killing themselves.  Double YIKES!  On the other hand, God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son for the forgiveness of sins.  The greatest example of love of all time.  My first love exposed me to love’s joys and its pains while my last is the one I put the ring on.  These 2 women will always have a special place in my heart.  For what is a book without a beginning and an ending.  That book is filled with everything I know about love.  Today, I am going to share some of that with you.

Love is all-inclusive.  Nothing and No One is immune.  Everything is subject to the effects of love.  Even the way you brush your teeth is subject to change upon the way you feel about the person you just spent 3 hours sharing a movie with.  Your job gets easier the closer it gets to quitting time cause you are a little closer to that person of great interest!  You jump on the freeway rushing to get to that person only get the attention of your local police.  Love got you a ticket.

Love is absolutely blind.  Ray Charles blind!  If you put your love in the surface of a person, it will leave you there.  What you see is the outside and love has nothing to do with that.  Love takes time to create.  No such thing as ”Love at first sight”.  Everything you see can be replaced.  True love is irreplaceable.

Love is whatever you put into it.  Put nothing into it, get nothing out.  Put everything into it and the possibilities are endless.  Love is the only thing in life where return on investment is immediate and bountiful.  There is a possibility where you can lose a lot when love is misplaced.  Don’t worry, Whatever you lose, Love will reimburse you 100% with experience!

Love is above all amazing!  Especially if you’re married.  You’ve moved from relationship to relationship searching for what you have now.  You took the vows that means love has firmly established itself in your life in the form of your mate.  BE WARNED!!!!  Love will test you often at this point.  Why?  Cause love is constant work.  Some folks need reminding of the committment love requires.  If  they are not up to it and the love is no longer binding, don’t worry.  Love is out there somewhere waiting for you!  Holla if you hear me!

  1. This was so on point!!!! However, I have often been asked and have even asked myself what’s the difference of loving someone and being in love. At one point in my life I really thought I knew the difference. I defined loving someone was what I chose to do and being in love was how I felt while loving you. Then I had an epiphany. My love shouldn’t be based on how I felt (although you should have feelings)but based on my thinking. See feelings could change everyday, every hour, and every minute. Jesus didn’t feel like barring the cross but he remembered his purpose for the people which sparked how he felt. I now first love in my mind then in my heart. Being in love, well that’s when my mind and my heart agrees and now my body/actions lines up with them both.

    So my love is simply put…”Whatsover a man thinketh so is he”
