It takes hands to build a house, but only hearts can build a home.

Chapter 2, Page 1, Book 13

Love Giving

Someone taught you how to love,
and probably didn't know it.
And in return, with every day,
It's now your turn to show it.

When you love, you give a gift,
And when you're gone it stays
To be passed on by the ones you loved
To make some one else's day.

So remember someone who loved you,
And show how much you care,
By sharing all the love they gave
With people everywhere.

When you give away your love,
That doesn't mean it's gone.
Love will last forever,
so open your heart...
and pass it on.

Today's Word


strong affection for another arising out of kinship or personal ties

Love has so many meanings that I couldn't begin to put them all in one post.  It's February and many think of it as the month of love.  Valentines Day is coming and that is special day set aside for those we love.

I do know that without love we are nothing.  Love is the best. Love is the most powerful. Love is the secret ingredient. Love is greater than faith because faith depends upon love. Love is greater than hope because love keeps hope alive. Love keeps life alive. Love banishes all darkness. Love is the greatest force in the universe. 

God is love and we are to love one another.

Spread love. Show love. Share love. 

And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

1 Corinthians 13:13

The world definitely needs more love; if we could spread it and continue to spread it, I think the world would be a better place indeed.
