- Love is
Love is acceptance without exceptions
Its boundaries without limitations
Its an exact measure of an imprecise proportion
Its something pure and delicate
Its losing your self inside one another
Without asking questions or questioning who, what and where
Its all these things and nothing else
But a little more of what you have inside to give
Its giving without anticipation of receiving
Its selfless and helpless
Its vulnerable to impartiality
Its safety and security when everything else around is falling apart
Its making time when there is no time
For each other, for yourselves
Its never really being alone
Just always being
No manual, no how-to-guide
No rules, no gimmicks, its sink or swim
Love has its own life that outlives the ones who love
Its undying, destined to outlast even Romeo and Juliet
Its an everlasting love
that lives on and on
Creating new life on its own
love is creation
Its all around
Love is being a care giver
To the one whom cries out in distress
For the love desired
To fill an empty space
Love is all these things
But if you must ask
Then surely you need to find out for yourself
Because this definition of love is tied to that which defines
What love isLove is us
In the place where
I'm yours and you're mine,
we'll love, laugh, and learn.
We'll climb hills together;
we'll stumble and fall,
yet we'll find enough
strength in each other
to continue our journey.
Tomorrow will stretch
ever too large to grasp,
yet we'll keep
moving toward it,
in each other's steps.
For though there's
on the way ahead,
we'll always be able
to depend on
and take comfort in
each other's love.
And should we ever
find ourselves astray,
we'll let our love
guide us home...
to the place where
I'm yours and you're mine.
1. TODAY I WILL NOT STRIKE BACK.
If someone is rude; If someone is impatient;
If someone is unkind.. I will not respond in like manner.
"Love is not rude, it is not self-seeking,
it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs"
(1 Corinthians 13:5).
2. TODAY I WILL ASK GOD TO BLESS MY "ENEMY".
If I come across someone who treats me harshly
or unfairly, I will quietly ask God to bless that
individual. I understand the "enemy" could be a
family member, neighbor, co-worker or stranger.
"For God so loved the world He gave
His one and only son so that whoever believes
in Him should not perish but have everlasting life"
3. TODAY I WILL BE CAREFUL ABOUT WHAT I SAY.
I will carefully choose and guard my words, being
certain that I do not spread gossip, slander or
malign anyone in any way.
"Love always protects, always trusts, always hopes,
(1 Corinthians 13:7).
4. TODAY I WILL GO THE EXTRA MILE.
I will find ways to help share the burden of another
person. I will find ways to make life more pleasant.
"Greater love has no one than this that he lay down
his life for his friends"
5. TODAY I WILL FORGIVE.
I will forgive any hurt or injuries that come my way.
(I will also work to forgive injuries that have been
inflicted upon me in the past). "God is love"
(1 John 4:8).
6. TODAY I WILL DO SOMETHING NICE FOR
SOMEONE, BUT I WILL DO IT SECRETLY.
I will reach out anonymously and bless the life of
another person. We always thank God for you
mentioning you in our prayers.
"We continually remember before our God and Father
your work produced by faith, your labor prompted by
love, and your endurance inspired by hope in our
Lord Jesus Christ"
(1 Thessalonians 1:1-2).
7. TODAY I WILL TREAT OTHERS AS I WISH TO
I will practice the Golden Rule - "Do unto others
as you would have them do unto you"- with
everyone I encounter.
8. TODAY I WILL RAISE THE SPIRITS OF SOMEONE
WHO IS DISCOURAGED.
My smile, my words, my expression or support,
can make the difference to someone who is
wrestling with life. "If anyone is thirsty,
let him come to Me and drink"
9. TODAY I WILL NURTURE MY BODY.
I will eat less; I will eat only healthy foods;
I will thank God for my
10. TODAY I WILL GROW SPIRITUALLY.
I will spend a little more time in prayer today;
I will begin reading something spiritual or
inspirational today; I will find a quiet
place (at some point during this day) and listen
to God's voice.
I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and
My fortress: my God; in Him will I trust.
When you pass through the waters, I will be
with you; And when you pass through the
rivers, they will Not sweep over you. When
you walk through the fire, You will not be
burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.
For I am the LORD, your God,
The Holy One of Israel, your Savior-
