What Is Love (Part One)

Submitted by on February 15, 2010 – 6:42 pmNo Comment |

When I told Hubs the title of this post, he broke into a rendition of the now infamous song by one-hit-wonder Haddaway (thank you, Will Ferrell and Chris Kattan). And while trite, I feel it’s only appropriate to make a post about the song’s subject on Valentines Day.

First of all, you should know that I’m a big fan of love but not of  Valentines Day.  In my mind, it’s a 24-hour excuse for people to act towards their significant other the way they should have been acting the other 364 days of the year too.  That being said, I do appreciate the “commercial” value of the holiday and was happy to indulge my pastor as he preached on 1 Corinthians 13 this morning as well as pay the $10 ticket fee to see the aptly named Valentines Day at the theater this afternoon.

As February 14th comes to a close and I sit here on the couch beside the man I love, I feel compelled to share some of the things I’ve “learned” about love today–what it is and what it is not.  For sake of brevity, I think I’ll turn this into a three part series.  (Yay! There goes my writer’s block!)

You might ask why I’d want to take a whole week to cover this topic. Shouldn’t I be focusing on something a bit more fashionable–or even something a bit more nerdy?  But quite honestly, I can’t think of a single thing more stylish than living a life of love.  So let’s start learning how…Here’s a preview of what we’ll be talking about this week.

What love is not: sex, a feeling.

What love is: patient, kind, truthful, protective, trustworthy, hopeful, persistent.
