1. Create an acrostic using the word LOVE. If you're unsure what an acrostic is clickhere.
Learning to think more highly of others than yourself
Opting to live a more Christ-like life
Valuing what is truly important...not material things
Encouraging the best from self and others
2. Does love really conquer all? Why or why not?
I love our host's answer and I am including it here for others to be sure to read!!
"I'm a romantic at heart so my answer might surprise you, but I'm going to say no. I think love conquers much. I think it covers a multitude of sins, but we're human and our words and actions have consequences that love can't always undo, take back, or conquer. Many people divorce someone they love. Human love is extraordinary...remarkable...imperfect."
I agree completely with her answer...Being a romantic at heart myself,. we romantics tend to sometimes have expectations that will never be met.... over the 44 years of marriage hubby and I have enjoyed... we must overlook the imperfections and choose contentment with the wonderful features our loved ones do display.... and pray they are doing the same toward us!
Our hostess again;;;
"Now God's love? That's different. I believe God's love can and does conquer all. His love is always sacrificial, always patient, always kind, keeps no record of wrongs, and never ever fails. It's the example we're given to emulate, but we're human, and the words always/never/all are something we fall short of at least some of the time. "
I cannot expound on that!
3.Tell us about a time recently, where you really put your heart into something.
Over the holidays when I was given a gift of 30 days with my grands I put my heart into time spent with Birdie...doing grandma things.... playing.. baking... crafting... reading... loving...
4.What's your favorite fictional love story?
The first one that came to me was Elizabeth Bennett and Mr. Darcy.... a love that overcame all odds, social standing, personal differences, trials of deception and misunderstanding, and yet, love prevailed.
5. Do you generally wear your heart on your sleeve, or keep your cards close to the vest?
Being an only child I was quite the loner for most
of my youth... very reserved and few confidantes. I learned to bury my feelings... but as I have matured I am much more open and with those I feel safe ( family and best friends) I probably tend to allow my true feelings show more readily... especially with my hubby....
6. What food says love to you? Why?
Any food hubby makes for me... my morning coffee and fruited yogurt cup primarily. He is so faithful and sweet about it!
7.When were you last 'tickled pink' over something? Explain.
I suppose it was last summer when we finally got a major project undertaken and completely,.. the redo of our kitchen... after 43 years it was the first major reno we had ever done.. a long time in coming but life had a way in our life to push our needs off the table.. To actually see the fulfilment of this dream was an awesome thing for me!
8. Insert your own random thought here.
No time.. the rest of my day must be spent catching up on my Bible study homework.. but praise God my cold is abating and I am feeling much better!!!
