Day 143 : What About LOVE?

Backtrack : Mid December

"A dream is a wish your heart makes when you're fast asleep. No matter how your heart is beating, the dream that you wish will come true"

I witnessed four types of love, listed in order of 'understanding':
- the Disney kind of love (specifically pertaining to Beauty and the Beast, Poccahontas, Shrek, Mulan, Rapunzel, Frozen) that makes you believe in perfect timing, that love can conquer all, that love can be magical, that love can be genuine and true;

- the Nicholas Sparks kind of love where reality somewhat kicks in yet still portrays a romantic, sweet and passionate kind of love, fierce and bold, true and still conquering,

- the kind of love seen around me starting from my parents, friends who are in a relationship, to celebrity couples who all share the context of 'reality' and what it means to 'love',

- and above all, the kind of love God has revealed to me through His word -
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, 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.

I've said this a lot of times, and I will always believe this : To know God is to know love. 

It all starts with God, who is LOVE.
We are all imperfect, and will inevitably have shortcomings when it comes to loving people. But I do feel that as we continue seeking Him, we'd have a strong foundation. We overflow, we feel secure, we have so much to give.
