Love is...

Love is…

The little girl that always comes up to you after church just to hold your hand…

A smile, that you cherish the rest of your life…

Love is hearing the name “Mamma” attached to your name.

The way you get engulfed with hugs the minute you walk into school…

Love is going for walks, and soaking up everything the kids say to you whether you understand them or not…

It is receiving a hug and never wanting to let go.

Love is having cuddle time during prayer, and having her big brown eyes stare up at you.

It’s enduring little hands play with and braid your hair for hours.

It’s laughing and giggling in two different languages.

It’s having a family back home that supports everything you do.

“Love never gives up.

Love cares for others more than for self.

Love doesn’t want what it doesn’t have.

Love doesn’t strut,

Doesn’t have a swelled head,

Isn’t always “me first”,

Doesn’t fly off the handle,

Doesn’t keep score of the sins of others,

Doesn’t revel when others grovel,

Takes pleasure in the flowering of truth,

Puts up with anything,

Trusts God always,

Always looks for the best,

Never looks back,

But keeps going to the end.”

- 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 The Message
