This Love

This love is an everyday kind of love

Every morning I’m in it

This love is an everyday kind of love

Every evening I’m in it

-Housefires

Love isn’t always a fairytale.  It isn’t all rainbows, fairies, glitter and unicorns. It can’t save you FROM your life, but can definitely ENHANCE your life.  You can’t put unreal expectations on it, but it is the realest thing there ever was.  It takes work.  It is easy to fall into, but you have to work to keep the intensity going.  People don’t stay in love for years by chance. It’s a marathon with no finish line.  It doesn’t just become instant smooth sailing without any drama when you hit a certain milestone.  Over time it can get easier but it isn’t always.  It will make you better, and make you more of yourself and at the same time consume a part of you.

They say love is blind, but it is not. Infatuation is blind. Love is all seeing and accepting. Love is supporting someone when they are driving you absolutely nuts.  Love is being completely committed to someone even when they are being completely unlovable.  Love is understanding where they are and why they are standing their ground, even when you want to push them along further.  It is knowing their weaknesses and not using them to your advantage.  It is knowing their flaws and accepting them for who they are. It is recognizing all the fears and insecurities and knowing your role is to comfort. Yes it makes you vulnerable and can make you do silly things.  It can scare the crap out of you. It can even hurt sometimes.  Ultimately you have to decide if it and the other person is worth the risk. God had to take that risk with you. He had to take the chance on His love not being returned or being pushed away.  He decided to love you anyway in spite of what you may have done and in spite of what others have done. To love is a deliberate choice, it is just a spontaneous, euphoric feeling. It isn’t superficial, but it is found deep down in the trenches.

Love stands the test of time, faith, and loyalty.

Love is a healer.

Love is a friend.

Love is a protector.

Love strengthens.

Sounds a lot like God doesn’t it?  Which makes perfect sense because He is love.

It doesn’t have to make sense, it will rule every fear.

It’s every moment, every day…always.
