Love, can you define it?

Love (v.): to hold dear, to like or desire actively.

At least that’s how the dictionary defines it. Love, it goes on to say, is also a noun, defined by “strong affection for another arising out of kinship or personal ties.”

Think you can do better? Define love, and your submission could be featured in an upcoming story in The Augusta Chronicle. Include your name, age and city along with your definition.

Love is an action.  Until

Love is an action.  Until there is an action it is just another emotion.  Never just listen to words, although they might sound nice, watch the action.  Without the Holy Spirit living inside us we can't really love because God's love is not like man's love.  God loves whether He is ever loved back or not.  Our love needs to be the same.

Love means being there for

Love means being there for someone no matter what the circumstance. It means saying no to something because it truly is the best answer, even though they want to hear yes. It means putting someone elses happiness before your own. Its looking into their eyes and knowing in your heart where you fit in. Its breaking down the walls and trusting again. Being in their space makes you forget all the problems going on in your hectic day. Its looking at that person and knowing in your heart this is where you are supposed to be. Love is an action, but its also an emotion, shared by two people; lovers, friends, family or children. Love is to share that inner peace with another.

Love is when someone knows

Love is when someone knows everything about you, the good, the bad and the ugly and then looks at you like you are the only person on the planet and loves you anyway.

Love is a decision and an action. Love means doing what you know will be best for the other person, even if it is not what you want, and hoping for the best outcome. I could write an essay.

My grandaddy told me LOVE is,

My grandaddy told me LOVE is, being willing to live on a riverbank in a tent eatting nothing but fish and beans, and being happy about it, years later I found out what he ment, Love means being able to accept the person for who they are not what they are. Sometimes as with family, you dont have to like their ways but you love them because they are family. Love is unselfish and kind but most often blind.
