People who genuinely love each other show it and express it.
Perhaps the most exciting and complex form of love is what we want to offer to and receive from one particular man - the one we love.
A woman finds this joy in the effort of making things extra special for her man, with hopes that they both find life full and interesting. Because the two people making a marriage are quite different from everyone else, the life they create together is unique.
Love offers an inexpressible joy of contentment. When the heart opens up with delight, it turns everything into happiness.
If the lovely sound of the alphabet song has shaped human minds, it could also shape one's love life with the exciting sound of its own heart-made ABC.
The ABC of Love
Almighty Love, is the source of love. With prayer, love is strong; without God, love is bland.
Beauty is a blessing, adding to the joys of love, but not necessarily to it.
Caring a little is the beginning of everything. Take care of his heart.
Difference of opinion is challenging. Meet halfway to make one, shared life.
Embers from fierce fire leave only a dull glow. Sweep it aside.
Flirt a little. Suggesting hidden reserves is intense charm. Men love it.
Giving is the essence of love; restraint is the wisdom; blend them to make love sweeter.
Hostile feelings slowly destroy happiness. Bring conflicts out. It put things right.
Illicit love starts at a disadvantage, falters and fades in the false air of uncertainty.
Just as you like to be appreciated, admired, and made much of … so does he.
Knowing when to change the mood to suit the moment is the height of femininity and the basis of attraction.
Let him be the boss, you'll be happier that way in the long run. Your man is the man.
Men are also human. They love for different reasons but feel much the same as you do. They get happy, hurt, proud, and all the rest.
Now is today and not tomorrow. Make the most of love every moment, every hour, every day.
Occasional argument helps love grow, provided with the right things and in the right way.
Perfection is impossible. Acceptance is your greatest asset. Nurture it.
Questions should seldom be asked, and then indirectly. Gentleness is the master key.
Romance blossoms love above clouds. Much of it is, but not all of it.
Smile and laughter make things alight. Take delight.
Talking together strengthens the bond. It's perfect every time.
Understanding, consideration, and generosity are special gifts of love. Cherish and share.
Voice out and express your desires. It suggests mutual attraction. Pleasant to both.
Women need men and men need women. Love means the two of you. All the time.
X is for kisses. Shower him with lots of it. It makes a man forget the dustiness of his day.
Youth is beauty that soon passes. Take care of your body and keep your looks.
Zest colors love. It makes love full of life. Love is the beginning of life. Treasure it.
So this is the thing called LOVE
Love, in its widest sense, is a beautiful flower in the garden of life, but it is frail, and needs careful tending. Water it with the rhythm of love's alphabet song - a song which seems to have nothing to do with worldly attributes.
It cannot be achieved by willpower. Money cannot afford it, but it can be shared alike by those who are clever, and those who are not. These are special gifts of love that when given bounteously from the generosity of heart can see a little farther than normal.
If you're less than perfect to sing the ABC of love harmoniously, don't worry about it. We all are. Just try to sing it. Just do it... It's for love.
Allow Me to Bring You to REAL LOVE
- Know True Love, Real Love..One True Love.. Love Is....
Love is patient. Love is kind. Love is not boastful or vainglorious. Love is not conceited. Love is not rude. Love does not look out for its own interests or own way. Love is slow to anger. Love is not self seeking. Love doesn't keep track of wrongs.
- True Love: A Pearl of Great Price
Finding true love is as valuable as finding a pearl in an oyster. It is a treasure that comes from years of growth, and sometimes the growth is painful but it produces an object of beauty.
