A Message for Valentine’s Day – The Power of LOVE
No other emotion has inspired the human psyche more than LOVE. The pursuit of it has resulted in great poetry, great music, and great stories. We have learned about sacrificial love, unrequited love, unrelenting love, unconditional love, unfulfilled love, and forbidden love. We have rejoiced with destined lovers and suffered with star-crossed lovers. Through it all, we have marveled at the power of L-O-V-E.
Some of us have waited for this feeling to enter our heart so that we can live the life we want with the person that inspires that special feeling. But, I must tell you that love is not a dormant feeling that will leap in your heart when you see the face of that certain person. Love is action. Love is a decision to open your life and your trust to another person despite human failings and weaknesses. Love comes from within not from without.
To me, the most beautiful words of love are as follows:
Love suffers long and is kind
Love does not envy
Love does not parade itself, is not puffed up
Love does not behave rudely
Love does not seek its own
Love is not provoked
Love thinks no evil
Love does not rejoice in iniquity but rejoices in truth
Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things
Love never fails
Happy Valentine’s Day to all !! Enjoy your chocolates and wine !
Aspire to put some action in your love!
