What is Love?

LOVE is a word that's thrown around a lot. "I love you," we say to our children, spouse, or significant other. "I love you," we say to our parents...maybe our siblings. But what does love mean?
For some it means, "I want sex."
For others it means, "I want whatever I can get from you."
For a few it means, "How can I make your life better?"
I've always thought that St. Paul's definition was unbeatable. It covers all bases, all creeds, all colors, all circumstances. If everyone lived by the true definition of love, there would be no wars, no arguments, no evil. It is so simple that it's difficult. Here is the definition of true love.
LOVE is patient.
LOVE is kind.
It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
LOVE does not delight in evil, but rejoices in the truth.
It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

  1. Wow, I am going to have to re-think the whole love is chocolate thing now...

  2. Oh, no... chocolate is an entirely different issue!

  3. Very true, Anny. We should all remember this...and that chocolate is in a 'love class' all by itself:)

  4. Chocolate can even surpass sex, so you can't classify it in the same compact title as "Love".

    Profound as always, Anny girl.

  5. Love is relaxation. Going away with my hero and forgetting the whole word. Why do we have to come back to the daily routine??
