Love is simple

February is valentine month, a special time for showing our love to family, friends, and those who touch our heart in a special way.

It’s a time when we should recognize the importance of love.

One of our basic needs is to be loved, to have someone who cares for us. It’s been said that love cannot be defined, it has to be demonstrated, it has to be experienced.

God has given us the greatest demonstration of love. He died on the cross for our sins. He performed a job no other man could do in his place.

Some people look for love, some people try to understand love, some people dream about love, some people chase after love, some people find love and some people don’t.

One thing about love is that love never changes. It remains constant and available in an unlimited supply.

Love is respectful, honorable, noble and honest. Love is gentle, compassionate, willing to share and able to comfort at any given moment.

You know that love is present when in the midst of a storm you can find even one thing to laugh about, smile about and hold on to.

You may even be the only expression of love that another person comes in contact with on any given day.

Love comes in all shapes and sizes. Love is simple. In time we’ll understand that love harmonizes all things and all people. Love is the greatest gift of all.
