Love Never Fails...

(Since multiply as a social network is about to close in a few hours, I am now completing the process of copying and transferring my blogs from multiply to their new home. I will be sharing with you some of my favorite blogs written in Multiply.)

I received a text message from an unknown subscriber early this morning, it said, "The best part of being in love is when you just love a person and be happy about it, even if that person can never be yours, even if you know that it can't last forever! That's the true essence of love. It's not winning someone. It's not owning a relationship. It's just about being happy cause you know you've loved and love unselfishly..."

How many times have we heard people say love means letting go or that love means seeing someone happy despite the pain you feel. Well, honestly as a hopeless romantic myself I do believe in these virtues. But I have to admit that loving in a one-way street is not happy, nor is the best part of loving. Sometimes the only best part of riding a one-way street is the lessons you learned after. 

In my perspective (with all courtesy to the author of the message) the best part of loving is to love and be loved back. The true essence of loving is sharing yourself with others who appreciates you for who you are and knows your real worth. It's all about being true to yourself despite being one together. In true love pain is inevitable (a point I agree with the message) but in time you will realize that pain will make you a stronger and better person. And true love is a love that is designed by the Master, a love story He created just for us. A perfect match He has prepared in which we are to share our ever afters.

Still the perfect definition of love is how it was described in the Bible. I Corinthians 13:4-8 says, "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." This is the kind of love that will make us truly happy.
