Love Is…

August 25, 2013

Love is patient, love is kind.
It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
It does not dishonor others, 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 Corinthians 13:4-8

What does love mean to you? Can we really describe it? I always look to this verse to remind me of what love is. To me it’s unconditionl and sacrifical, it’s about giving over taking, being selfless and not selfish, committing for the long haul and not just short term, perservering not quitting. It can be seen through patience, kindness, humility, forgiveness, integreity and ongoing perseverance. Is it easy? Not always, but this is the kind of love that survives and stands the tests of time and tribulations. ♥

    Love is all those things you said. I think that kind of love is so hard to find because more often than not, some love comes with conditions and that is not true love. I am lucky to have found that rare to find unconditional love. When you have that, you cherish it and protect it and he does the same. It’s the greatest feeling in the world.

    I know many think 1 corinthians has become cliched, but it holds so much truth to me. For me, it is most real when we make someone a priority over ourselves, even if it means inconvienience.

  • Marley

    :) When people ask me why we married so young and so fast, I really am speechless because I can’t describe my feelings for him. I love him so much that my heart can burst any second- it’s indescribable. But you wrote it down perfectly

  • Chocho

    Love is love, I don’t think I can describe it better :)

  • Carolyn

    so convicting when we think about love in all those terms as described in 1 Corinthians… I love how pure perfect love is intended to be.

    I love these versus so much, even not being a Christian everyone seems to know these lines and appreciate it. They make me a little sad because I’m reminded more of my heartbreaks :(

  • Jane

    this is harder than expected. i don’t know how to describe love.. but perhaps it is one of the most hardest things to do.. to love all and everything and everyone. :)

  • Hanna Ulala

    This is one of my favourite verses in the bible, it’s just so beatiful and reminds me to calm down if I’m feeling angry or anxious. It’s just perfect :)

    beautiful. just what i needed to read today. thank you love. xo

  • Sarah Mc.

    This verse is both beautiful and uncomfortable for me. I love it but it also shows me how far from true love I really am! Love is work. What a wonderful meditation to begin the week!

  • Maru

    Amazing, this is so beautiful and it does remind us what love is all about, really powerful words.
    Have a great week!

  • Jessica C

    One of my favorite Bible verses and something I think about often when I’m tested in my love for others. I find myself saying to myself “love is patient, love is kind, Jessica…” whenever I get a bit impatient with someone…This is so great, Victoria, and I LOVE the “LOVE” type/colors :) xo

    You learn a lot about what love means in a marriage. It isn’t all romance and flowers. This verse is always a good reminder.

    Does building a well-established website like yours require a lot
    of work? I am completely new to running a blog but I do write in my journal daily.
    I’d like to start a blog so I can easily share my own experience and thoughts
    online. Please let me know if you have any suggestions or tips for new aspiring bloggers.

    Appreciate it!
