"hold up, wait a minute, put a little love in it"

{ Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, 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.}  
- 1 Corinthians 13:4-7

Love.  It's a powerful word.  It could be some of the last words from someone dying or the next step in a relationship. But what is this love? Webster's Dictionary defines it: a) unselfish loyal and benevolent concern for the good of another b) the fatherly concern of God for humankind c) brotherly concern for others.  

Love is something intangible, but can be felt, heard, and cherished.  We all have love for one another, but most of the time, this so-called love is just a conditional state.  Like when we love our significant other for doing the dishes, or telling us we look nice.  But, when they leave the dirty dishes in the sink for a week or are honest and tell you they don't like our outfit, do you still have the same affection for them? True love withstands all of these circumstances.  

Love is about cherishing all moments, not those you choose to like.  Love doesn't withstand commitment, but commitment withstands love.  This valentine's day, choose to appreciate all the little mishaps in life as well as the triumphs.
