That word, “love”

Yep, it’s Valentine’s Day. Sorry, there is no history I will offer on Saint Valentine of Rome. I have become colonized to the history of Hallmark cards and flowers; that’s really sad on my part, but I’m just being honest. Anyway, thinking about love today I wondered all the ways I have looked at this word, love, through all of my 61 years and nope, Hallmark won’t come calling. Here is what I found:

  • Love is Mom
  • Love is strange
  • Love is desiring
  • Love is hard
  • Love is breathless
  • Love is painful
  • Love is tiresome
  • Love is determined
  • Love is intentional
  • Love is blistering
  • Love is happiness
  • Love is sad
  • Love is healing
  • Love is kind
  • Love is sexy
  • Love is dangerous
  • Love is crazy
  • Love is satisfying
  • Love is transparent
  • Love is scary
  • Love is demanding
  • Love is acceptance
  • Love is justice
  • Love is God

I’m pretty sure my list will grow a little more. I might even look at love a little bit different in my seventies. But this is what I know for sure, “LOVE bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. LOVE NEVER FAILS.” 1st Corinthians 13:7

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!
