Its thursday, and I am in love with love. Not just for love's sake, but cos I'm learning new stuff everyday. You know that passage about love in Corinthians? Its so complete. Please read here : LOVE
And lately i've been thinking about it alot, and about what it means. But I wont preach about that, the bible is already explicit in that aspect. Instead, you know how a picture is worth a thousand words? Enjoy...
Do you agree? The part about highly desirable makes me smile. And if you've been reading my blog since last year, you'd know that I concur completely with the weakened brain, sparkling eyes, glowing cheeks and HBP. In addition to rabbitlike energy that is. :)
Everytime you offer your heart to someone, its never grudgingly. You know that it could turn out either ways. The person can either take it and keep it in their pocket and forget about it, (think Bridget Jones and the parable of the servants) or the person can nourish and protect it from hurt (this is my fave or the person can pretend its a trampoline and jump up and down on it till it disintegrates (insert possible wailing sounds (by u of course) here.) Either ways, you offer and then you wait.,
This is one of the most difficult parts. TRUST. Its soo hard right? But I see trust as a ecision. You either chose to trust someone or you dont.There's no half measures when it comes to this. Its a total surrender. A huge risk. Like jumping off a cliff. There can either be a nice soft cushion at the bottom or a nice bed of jagged rocks and broken bottles. Either way, you choose.
And after you decide to trust that person, you think these words. Because your trusting someone is majorly for you. And you peace of mind. The other person can either decide to break that trust, or uphold it.
It takes both parties to make a relationship work. All the loving in the world if one sided will never work. Two people working together, working at it, believing and trusting eachother. My friend Rico said something on twitter yesterday about friendship. He said "it is not me that is your friend. We are friends".
Scratch the valentine part. The picture was too cute not to use. It is my prayer that when you find that one person, that they'll find u too. And you'll be eachother's forever.
And when you decide on forever, you'll have to promise to always love, alwasy trust and always honor. Too bad most people dont understand this part. Love and marraige is not for kids. Its for grown people, who understand that every decision taken changes irrevocably the course of your life, and that of the people affected by that decision.
So please, as the picture says, love me till my heart stops. If I choose you, be sure that I'll be doing the same.
Thats word enough isn't it?
P.s. Am I the only that thinks Loving someone is different from being in love with them? IMO the being in love part is the step after loving them. I may be wrong.
P.s.s. Because something came easy does not mean it came cheap. Someone else already paid for it. (my lil titbit of wisdom for the year)
