Loving Actions

Increasing Your Intimacy 100 Percent...

Genuine love doesn't necessarily spring from feelings. Its basis is primarily a concern for the welfare of another. Although the feelings of affection will follow, genuine love is initially an action directed toward fulfilling another person's needs.

-From "It Takes Two to Tango" by Gary and Norma Smalley

My thoughts:

Feelings come and go. You have to choose daily to love, accept, forgive and stay committed.

I know I've said it a million, gazillion times, love is a verb... it's an action. You can say I love you, but are you showing it with your actions?

When God created Adam, he saw that it was not good for man to be alone. So he created Eve. We are to be as one. This doesn't mean we lose our individuality as the "world" sees it. This means we grow close to our spouse and become one. We balance each other. We support one another. We are there for one another in good and bad times.

I sure do miss you Lady G. This post and the preceding ones are awesome, as usual. Much wisdom to share. As I look at your pictures I thought to myself I know her. We have met before. But then I realize it must be the same Spirit that is in me is also in you. Which makes us sisters. Hope you keep blogging Sis. I see it's been a while.
