love.

Lately, a good friend and I have been discussing love. Not in the mushy-gushy way, but more of a questioning why people toss around the word so carelessly. How do you recognize love? By words, actions, or both?

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 with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.

  1. I completely agree! But, after Drew died I did make sure that I tried to tell those that meant the most that I loved them whenever I talked to them. It might just be “thrown out there” at the end of a conversation, but I mean it so much and I want that person to hear it from me.

  2. I think if you mean it, it is never thrown around carelessly! I think what we struggle with is hearing the words, but not seeing the actions from other people.
    I love you!

  3. And I love you too! I’m so glad I found your blog, and I’m so exciting that you’re loving this new chapter in your life!
    Keep up the thoughtful and fun blogging 🙂
