Love Is Not Self Seeking...

I don't believe that once a year or anniversaries, birthdays and such are the only times you should be expressing your love for that special one in your life.

i believe in honouring them with love, respect, encouragement, thinking and doing things for them should become as easy as breathing. i had to work at making this happen, and i think it started with having three daughters. i now have three friends not just people who might share my last name. They are special people and i enjoy every moment of time i can spend, encouraging and blessing them.

What do you really know about the person you share a bed, a home, a family or extended family with as is my case? Was it just in the courting that all the charm and special little doings happened and when the knot was tied all that came to nothing?

If you are of the latter then perhaps you need to revisit what put that spark in your relationship and you need to nurture it. There may be things you have to ask forgiveness for? How much honour do you give or is it all about you? When was the last time you left a note, bought flowers, did a little something that was just from love and not, "What can i get out of this?"

Valentines has become a commercial guilt laden pressure cooker that you had better come through or else!

Valentines expression of love should be happening everyday, if the love you have is real and meaningful and you value the person God has placed in your life. If you are a serious believer, think for a moment about all the things that God has done for you, that had nothing to do with how we loved, honoured, respected, feared, acknowledged him with our lives.

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, 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. From 1Cor. 13

How Do I Love My Love

i saw you before i met you, you had captured the eyes of my heart...

There was something in the words you wrote, something in their form.

i could tell you were special and i remember writing some silliness but it made you laugh.

You were curious as i...

i could not wait to see each day the treasure in your words i would find for me.

i was never disappointed but we had only words, and a photograph. There was no voice to add just yet, and days went by before we each could hear a voice from words, from a photograph, to the other end of a telephone conversation...

You called me with hesitation, anticipation, fear. i answered and, we talked for hours just like old friends. It seemed so right, so real, even surreal...

We talked and laughed shared our souls. 25, 30 years fell off my life, my heart was lightened, my joy was being filled up with you.

i have words, a photograph and now i have a voice, but still distanced by a telephone line. We would have to meet.

i said, "i would enjoy a meet at a special coffee cafe with fine jazz music playing, and then a walk by the lake."

You liked that too!

One week later we agreed and i drove the distance. Sunday morning and coffee it would be, but no jazz. i could not have told you what music was playing. i could only hear the music in your voice.

It's October, one week after thanksgiving. A jacket day, but i was warm all over...

The sun was shining we spent the day together walking and talking.

This was the start of our beautiful relationship.

The distance divided by miles and one large city became lessened by the love that was growing in our hearts.

How do i Love my love?

i found a common thread in an eternal relationship that was mature and grounded, that is now a three strand cord.

i discovered heights in our love for one another that went beyond anything i had known before. And joy tied up with laughter that makes my heart just dance.

The joy of waking with you beside me.

The joy of staring at you when you're not quite looking and admiring your face, your countenance, your delicate ears and how your fine blond hair falls just so... i delight in our conversations, our times sitting close and watching the programs or movies we enjoy together.

Our competitive streak around the scrabble board. i love watching your eyes light up when i've cooked a special dish and you're amazed with the flavours i've created.

i love seeing the joy you have in sharing about the job you feel so blessed to have, as you tell me over dinner. i love walking with you and holding your hand and sharing our love with the world, or when it's just you and me in the car and i can feel that touch.

i especially love the intimate times of just laying with you and holding you in the candlelight and having your head just under my chin resting on my breast.

i love that we share so many common interests and especially our desire for the heart of God permeating our lives and the togetherness we have for blessing others.

i love that you would be comfortable in going anywhere with me that the Lord might direct us as a team. i love your joy, support and encouragement in my spiritual endeavors.

i love texting you little quirky things that make you smile.

There are just so many things i love about you and love to do for you.

i love especially that God has given us an exceptional gift in each other.

As the song says,"I love you with every beat of my heart."

      Lovely Hub - I agree, Valentines' Day should be everyday. The poem is beautiful. It wasn't written with a pen. It was written with your heart.
