…but I know what Love is…


“….I’m not a smart man, but I know what love is…”

and then Forrest turns, walks to the front door with his hand resting on his hip

as he stares out at the night.

Since the world seems to be focusing on love today,

I thought I would describe what real, true love looks like.


Is the patient

Is Kind

It does not envy

It does not boast

It is not proud

It is not rude

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 13:4-8

We are all much like Forrest Gump, looking for love and sometimes find disappointment. Love is a funny thing. We all have our own definition and expectation of what “love is” but do we really honestly know?  May we all dig a little deeper and look beyond the feeling and get to the “heart” ♥ of it all.

The Perfect Love Letter

I know you from your head to toe. I know your words before they are spoken. I know and understand you better than anyone else in the world.

I will hear you…Listen to you and answer all your needs. I will be your strength. No matter what…I will always love you, unconditionally.

I am able to do more for you than you could possibly imagine.  I will be your provider and meet all your needs. I will be your greatest encourager.

When you are brokenhearted, I will be close to you. I will wipe away your tears…I will never stop doing good for you.

I will always be on your side. I will be there for you…My faithfulness will never cease.

I want to show you great and marvelous things. My steadfast love for you is better than life itself. My compassion begins anew each morning.

My thoughts of you are countless as the sand on the seashore…It is my desire to lavish my love on you.

I will be patient and keep my promises; for you are my treasured possession. I will be slow to anger and rich in love.

I will watch over you. I will care for you. You can trust me.

My love for you is real and it will change your life; if you let it. I am the complete expression of love. I will complete you.

Delight in me and I will give you the desires of my heart…I will always be there for you…and nothing can separate our love.

I will be your strength. My love for you will always stay. You are fearfully and wonderfully made and I love you.

With deepest love, I wait for you…


If you have never searched the scriptures of God’s Love…it is well worth the time. His love for us is the ultimate love story ever written. Happy February 14th, 2014!
