Love is not "just is" I just got a comment on a hub declaring "Love just is". Stop everything and put the brakes on!!!

Updated on March 23, 2014

Top a tree. Care not about the roots and the shock to it, "love just is"

A horrible design yet man made and man manifest.

Preacher man walking down a sidewalk.

There was a great preacher man that used his peoples money to build a church and he bought a house just one mile away. On a rainy day he would turn his collar up and pull his hat down around his head and step over the feet of the wet drunks outside a bar on his way to his church.

There was a great business man who just loved Sundays where he would make his best employees work to crunch that extra dime. And they would save the extra buck.

There was a beautiful woman in South Africa who believed she had her own and that faith and grace had be given to her on earth and that it "just was".

There was a smart man made of gold who believed that the 12 hour days his people worked in the Mekong Delta was great because they had a job.

Love "just is". And life sucks.

Well love can be a "just is" thing, but if you do not show it, you stink.

My four year old does not get it. If I just stand here and tell him I love him, he will soon enough cry "bullshit"

If you think your love is just known you need a lobotomy!

John Wayne walked into the bar big as a giant. Eric walked up to him and told him he was on that cattle drive when John had fallen off that horse back on that re-enactment on the bottom end of the Chism trail. John took one arm and wiped Eric off the floor and across the bar room.

And then he looked hard at the bar keep and ordered a beer and a shot of whiskey for the punk Eric sprawled out on the barroom floor. No whoopin just a statement. No judgment just a whoopin. No verbage just a beer and a shot.

Eric had to whoop one man getting up. Whoa be to that poor soul. But he finally got up on a stool at the bar with John who just happened to be drinking sarsaparilla (that is Ginger Ale for you nig nogs). Dang it Eric's shoulder and left leg hurt like hell. And then John leaned over and said "hey rattlesnake I remember you, you were just a kid on that ride" and big old John loved me that day. Ooops I mean he loved Eric.

Sometimes our love might be shown to be strange to others. But we still have to show it. Really who do you think you are? Are you crazy just like me??????

Get out there for me and for you -- you know too much.

Oh yes every one is just expected to know that you love them.

Act the fool. Act the angry fool. Act crazy and mean. They are just supposed to know you love them. Well that is just crazy. The only way to express love is to give love in a real way. We always love the Archie Bunker, everyone was just supposed to know that he loved them. Well we laughed at Archie for he was a fool.

Love is not "just is" it needs you to promote it. It needs you to act the fool for love. Amen. Do not think that auntie knows you love her. Do not live that way. Spend your capital to love.

      tireless, I must admit that they are cleaner, safer and let in more sun during the winter, so trimming is the right move. Love is a verb is a great statement, thank you.

      try to love the tree as it loves you. My wife does not like all that lovey dovey stuff and she "topped" all my Italian Cypress trees. Damn life is a bitch. Life is a bowl of cherries and all you got left are the pits!

      I reckon we will get by with a little help from our friends.

      Love just "isn't" man. I love my douglas fir tree in an unwholesome way. My wife says I cannot divorce her to marry the tree in my own front yard??? I will marry that tree on Christmas I tell you. She will cut it down and cut out my heart. I take my clothes off and rub my unwholesome parts on its trunk, I get all manner of sores and lesions and infections from this bestial activity but I don't care. Next thing you know they'll let me marry my same-sex cat!! I welcome it. I will be the first one at the court house with a protest sign and a marriage license. I throw a bible at mine own head but the brain damage is not non-irreversible so the good doctor tells me. I cannot decide. Love. Voted up and awesome and shared my good sir.
