What Love Is


Photo Cred: Meagan Abell

In light of February being the month of love and having my February goals actually centered around that (don't roll your eyes at the cliche-ness yet), I've been reflecting on what love is. And while I've been reading various quotes, and books and things other people say, I don't think there's anything that explains it better than this.

Love never gives up.
Love cares more for others than for self.
Love doesn't want what it doesn't have.
Love doesn't strut,
Doesn't have a swelled head,
Doesn't force itself on others,
Isn't always "me first,"
Doesn't fly off the handle,
Doesn't keep score of the sins of others,
Doesn't revel when others grovel,
Takes pleasure in the flowering of truth,
Puts up with anything,
Trusts God always,
Always looks for the best,
Never looks back,
But keeps going to the end.
