When I say I love you...

It does not mean a box of chocolates, or long stem roses.
It does not mean an heirloom ring, or sexy poses.

It is not three words, carelessly strung together,
without weight, like a feather.

Or exhaled air formed into syllables, meaningless.
Sounds good to the ears, but the heart, feeling less.

When I say I love you...

It means I am concerned about your soul,
Not just certain traits, but your whole.
That I know you will make mistakes, 
I don't expect perfection.
That I will bring mercy and grace to our covenant, 
along with protection.

It means I anticipate your needs 
and move with admiration and emotion.
To remedy your lack-of, desire-to, or emptiness, 
with limitless devotion.

To say I love you with just my words, is simply...insufficient.

that you hope to hear 
The Almighty say to you 
when you pass through the pearly gates?

Love is...

Love is patient, love 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.
Love never fails.
