Love

what does it mean to really, genuinely love someone? what does it look like? we throw "love" around a lot, but what takes it beyond "luv" into Love? i think Love moves us to act purely for the good of the other person...doing what they need, not what you think they need, or doing what you think will get them to do something for you. it is no strings attached action, not gooey feelings. it is muscular and strong - strong enough to be sad when the one you love is crying, and strong enough to celebrate when the one you love is celebrating, even if your own heart is barren. Love is brave and willing to live outside of it's own comfort to create comfort for others. it is fluid, moving past offense and obstacle with grace. real Love acts even when it doesn't feel. i want to live with more Love and less "luv".
