What is True Love?

Can you describe what true love is? Can you put your finger on it? Can you hold it? I have heard songs, read books, read poetry about love. But really no one song or poem describes the whole meaning. Here are some short quotes I found online about love:


“True love comes from the soul and the heart” Lovable Quotes.com

“Once in a lifetime you meet someone who changes everything” #Pinterest

#John Legend song: “All Of Me” is a great description of love.


I have been married for 21 years and I can’t put my finger on my love for him exactly because it is ever moving, flowing or changing.

When I first got married it was the fun and exciting, a lighter than air feeling I had when I was around my husband, Lellan. As we started a family I watched him with our daughter and the care he took when giving her a bath or playing ball with her. He was gentle, kind and oh so loving with her and our younger daughter too. This made my love grow in a different fashion. Of course there has always been laughter. He knows what gets me to laughing especially when I am a bit down. Now after all these years he still accepts me and all my imperfections. I also accept him and his. We are a team that gains strength each day.

I guess love is hard to grab a hold of because it is like water it flows and keeps refreshing whomever drinks it. Our love is hard to grab but we know it is there. A God given love that surrounds us and hugs us even when we don’t necessarily need it. I hope you experience this kind of love during Valentines Day and beyond. Everyone deserves this.
