Love is...

Love is...

Chocolates and roses;
Candle-lit dinners;
Kisses and cuddles;
Gazing deep into each others eyes;
Warm and close and intimate.

Love is...

Patient and kind;
Not jealous, boastful or proud;
Not rude nor self-seeking;
Not short-tempered, nor ready to bring up every failing at every opportunity;
Not delighting in evil, but rejoicing in truth;
Always protecting, always trusting, always hoping;
Never giving up.


Love is...

Not remote, but incarnate;
Touching the untouchable: the leper, the outcast;
Throwing parties for tax collectors and prostitutes;
Reaching out your arms to embrace the world, only to have them nailed to a Cross;
Bigger than anything that can be ranged against it - even death!
Inseparable!
