What is Love?

Interesting question that fellow N@Wie Joy asked in the group.

This got me thinking on how do I define Love.

When I was in grade school, slum books and autographs are hot. I always put on the slum book for the definition of love to be as Love is like a rosary that is full of mysteries (hehe..kind of cheesy but if you will think about it, it is full of mysteries especially for other people to understand). Or if I'm lazy to write that phrase I'll just put Love is blind (ahahaha! corny!).

When I get older and wiser (college), I like this thought about love - We come to love not by finding a perfect person, but by learning to see an imperfect person perfectly. I have to agree with this. This concept applies to anyone who is in a romantic relationship especially if you're married. After all, this is the point where you will see the flaws of your partner which you haven't seen before when he/she is you bf/gf.

Right now, the only thing that comes to my mind when I think about Love is my husband then my family and lastly my friends. It's hard to describe it in words but once you strongly feel it, it's easy to express and show it to the ones you love. More often than not, it's much better to show love in actions rather than in words (I will prefer it that way. I'm just lucky that hubby shows that he loves me and he makes it a point to say the three words and eight letters everyday).

Moreover, I always turn in to the bible verse about love to be my source of inspiration for our marriage. That is found in First Corinthians, Chapter 13, Verses 4-8.

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...
