    why say "true LOVE"
    what is "real LOVE"
    how can you be "totally in LOVE"
    what are we talking about
    LOVE is
    GOD is
    these are absolute things
    LOVE doesn't need an adjective for qualifying
    LOVE doesn't need anything to make it a better thing
    LOVE is GOD
    GOD is LOVE
    that's not a bumper sticker
    it's a reality
    LOVE is
    spiritual in nature
    and essence
    LOVE is enough
    LOVE
    LOVE is organic
    never panics
    LOVE is a gift
    from GOD to the lover
    from GOD to the loved
    through the lover
    and gives them both an unconditional life
    sometimes creates husband wife
    mother child
    LOVE runs wild
    with one objective
    LOVE covers
    a multitude of sins
    LOVE suffers
    LOVE hopes
    LOVE doesn't brag
    LOVE believes
    never sits on pins
    and needles
    LOVE never wheedles
    LOVE endures
    and obtains the promise
    "Surely multiplying, I will multiply you, Surely blessing I will bless you"
    these are living things
    willfull activities
    LOVE has a will of its own
    verb
    sound
    energy
    indwelling reality
    in the beginning was the word
    and the word was GOD
    GOD is
    LOVE is a word
    LOVE lives
    in the word
    by the word
    deep calls unto deep
    GOD talks
    through the lover
    to Himself
    in the loved
    and causes the loved to speak
    "less of me and more of YOU"
    LOVE is alive
    operating
    the reconciliation ministry
    and through the lover
    GOD is entreating
    Be reconciled
    to Me
    and something else happens
    romantically
    the loved didn't seek
    but was found
    apparently bound
    unable to speak LOVE
    seek LOVE
    you should
    reek LOVE
    except its not a choice
    i told you
    LOVE is a spiritual gift
    if i have everything
    but not LOVE
    i have nothing
    i am nothing
    but you can't have LOVE
    be LOVE
    if i am anything but LOVE
    i am nothing
    Soloman said life apart from GOD is vanity
    GOD is LOVE
    so life without LOVE must be insanity
    the Shulamite said LOVE is as strong as death
    statistics show that death is permanent
    death could not hold GOD
    LOVE inspired HIM to make the firmament
    long before
    since GOD is LOVE
    LOVE cannot die
    Shulamite called it a quenching fire
    many waters cannot douse LOVE
    the lover gets tired
    and discouraged
    frightened
    bored
    floored
    LOVE does what it knows
    LOVE is not threatened
    by what the lover sees
    LOVE knows what it be
    WHO it be
    LOVE is costly
    certainly not free
    but LOVE is freedom
    free from all fear
    and attachment to the outcome
    LOVE is a soldier
    and iron sharpens iron
    sharper than any double edged sword
    dividing soul and spirit
    bone and marrow
    useful from sallow
    wielding the antidote
    when the lover is frightened
    or when doubt is heightened
    no matter what
    LOVE cast out fear
    and wipes away tears
    God's banner above me is LOVE
    it's written all over my face
    i am leaking LOVE all over the place

    Okay so here's the deal. I love someone and I am sad. But so what, I am just the lover, the channel, not the LOVE. If I am to believe in LOVE then I must believe that LOVE never dies. Friendships/Relationships don't die, they change shape and if you keep believing they get stronger. They fail because someone stops believing. Think about it.

    Is that really love or a reasonable facsimile? The heart is deceitful above all things but LOVE just is.

    Holla at ya girl...one

    :love:

    This prompted me to reread "Don't Leave" and the responses to it. I got what you meant then, and get what you mean now. Love is there, situations alter our reactions to each other. The reason why it hurts so bad is because the feelings remain. Your words speak loudly.

    And here's my take on it:
    Sometimes people have too much love to give, and others get scared by it. But people become afraid at love, period. That's why there are so many people with intimacy issues.

    Thought-provoking piece.

    This is quite an inspiring piece of work, as was the first one also...I like the fact that you in essence know the real meaning of this thing we call love.

    wordsmiths and wordstresses~

    I hope that this conveyed to you how much I love God. He gives each of us our own revelations. For me it is the ability to channel unconditional LOVE. I am becoming LOVE....one

    Nicole,

    I rode with you again. You have such ability to swell the soul with your pen. This poem is a special blessing to me today because of the subject matter taught by a dear sister in church today...The Father Heart Of God. By the time she had finished sharing with us on this, nearly half of the church was in tears. Your poem brought back those moments from this morning. I invite you to read Father's Love Letter

    Joyce
