Lessons in love

I am madly in love. I love being in love, and I love to love.  Especially this guy!

Paul and Becky

Love is a feeling, and an attitude, and a choice.  I have made the choice to love.  I make this decision every day.

It is so simple, and yet it can be so complex.

The complex part of love is that it naturally goes against what true love is all about.  Human nature says to be selfish, but true love is anything but selfish.

Love gives, when all it wants to do is get.  Love accepts, when all it wants to do is change.  Love listens, when all it wants to do is talk.

Love hangs in there, and never, ever gives up.

True love never fails.

    I totally agree with your sentiments here. I wrote on what is love last year (more in response to the crass commercialism of Valentine’s Day) that you’d probably like:

    And that’s a GREAT picture of the two of you! I’m glad you shared it.

      Nancy,
      Thank you for sharing what you wrote – that was great! I like how you mentioned that love is doing something without be asked. At our house we call it “random acts of kindness“, but I believe it is so much more than being kind. It’s love in action. And it seems to me that the only way that this can really happen is for me to pay attention to others, and take the first step. I’m glad you liked the pic! I almost didn’t do it 🙂
      Thanks again!

        I’m glad you posted it. And I nearly didn’t leave that link – wasn’t sure if it was too forward, but I always enjoy when my readers share with me something they posted on a similar theme or opposite viewpoint.

    Looking g8 together. Best line in your post is Love gives, when all it wants to do is get. Love accepts, when all it wants to do is change. Love listens, when all it wants to do is talk.

  6. Love is what keeps us going. This is beautiful, “Love is a feeling, and an attitude, and a choice. I have made the choice to love. I make this decision every day..” You look good together. A vision of two people who inspires each other. Thanks for sharing that love with us.
