Unconditional Love...

love is a "decision" not a "feeling..."
love is a commitment to stay whether you feel like it or not...

w/love, fsb

so true . No one said it would be easy

Hmmm... *pondering*

oTAY. Hereitgo:

I think I both agree & disagree that Love is a decision. The mind & the heart are two very different & mad powerful entities. But yes, UNCONDITIONAL love is most definitely a decision, RULED, perhaps, by the heart.

My Lady...
So true, love isn't easy but it is so amazingly worth it!

Love you!

I "love" that we can agree to disagree :-)

I say it is a decision because in the flesh...we decide to love and then we decide that we don't love "him/her" any longer.

I still love everyone that I loved in the past but differently. Before I received the unconditional love of My Savior, I could not have said that.

When my marriage ended...over time, I "decided" that I did not love him anymore. Now, looking back, I do still love him and want the very best for him.

I've purposed in my heart to love because if God "chose" to love me...inspite of who I used to be...inspite of who I'm still in the process of becoming...I can choose to love others.

It is a tough decision at times, but over time...we can show love to the most unloving. And I say that because the most unloving person is the one in the most pain and is in need of the most LOVE!

Love for a great day!

Wow. You deep, China. I've not yet reached that DDD (Divine Degree of Deepness). ;-)

I do agree that the most unloving among us are often the ones in the most pain. The best I can do in those cases is to love... w/ a certain strain of compassion... but very much from AFARRRRRRR!

Have a Blessed & productive day & week ahead, my Friend.

Thank you Lin.

I can say that the "deepness" comes from being single and "choosing" to cultivate a personal relationship with Him.

Not to offend anyone...but while most are partying, drinking, sexing and the like...I am finally evolving into the woman He created me to be.

Not that I'm against any of those things...(nor do I judge) I did my fair share when I wasn't saved.

But my friend, the Apostle Paul said it best. "When I was a child, I reasoned as a child...but now, as an adult, I put away childish things..."
(not verbatim)

But as a woman, I must do the right thing even when I don't feel like it.

This life is not about me or my "feelings." My feelings have gotten me in lots of trouble in my past and I dare not go back there again...

Love and peace
