If I Love You...

Updated on December 1, 2008

If I love you:

 

  • I will be patient with you
  • I will be kind to you
  • I will not be jealous over you
  • I will not brag or put myself above you
  • I will treat you with respect
  • I will not seek my own good above yours
  • I will not easily become angry with you
  • I will not keep track of wrong things you have done
  • I will not be happy over sin or misfortune in your life
  • I will rejoice over the truth which I see in you
  • I will bear your burdens with you
  • I will always believe in you
  • I will always hope for the best in your life
  • • I will endure anything which comes into our lives together

The above is simply a personal application of I Corinthians 13 from the Bible. While love often includes some wonderful feelings, love itself is not a feeling. Love of the kind that one person should have for another, whether it is parent/child, siblings, good friends, or your spouse requires attitudes and actions. It isn't always easy, and sometimes there are no warm and fuzzy feelings, but having these attitudes and acting accordingly is what makes it love.

      That photo was taken at the Reagan Library in Simi Valley, CA. It is the plane that was used during most of the Reagan years. If you have the opportunity to go there, the library is worth a visit.

      Yes, whenever the president is on a plane, it's official designation is Air Force One.

      Thanks for commenting. I look forward to reading your new posts.

      Outstanding. Thank you =) By the way, What were the circumstances that you were photographed in front of Air Force One? Maybe you can answer me this---> So, it is true that ANY plane carrying the sitting President has the "Air Force One" call sign as long as he is aboard? Like when George W. landed the fighter plane on the carrier, the plane's call-sign was "Air Force One" while he was aboard? I thought you may know. Thanks =)
