Love Is...

Love is the best thing in the world
...And the thing that lives longest.

Love isn't something to be taken for granted
...It's something to be nurtured,
And cared for and caressed.

Love can last forever
...If you want it to.

Love isn't tough and tentative .
..It's wonderful and gentle and tender.

Love is mysterious
...But it asks that you keep no secrets.

Love is blind
...But it asks that you see how happy it can make you.

Love is more like a flower than a tree
...The wrong things can hurt it so easily.
But the right things can make it more beautiful
Than anything else your life has ever know.

Love is...

Slow to suspect
... Quick to trust.

Slow to condemn
... Quick to justify.

Slow to offend
... Quick to defend.

Slow to reprimand
... Quick to forbear.

Slow to belittle
...Quick to appreciate.

Slow to demand
... Quick to give.

Slow to provoke
... Quick to conciliate.

Slow to hinder
... Quick to help.

Slow to resent
... Quick to forgive.
