L – Limitless. My love is limitless. There is always more to spread around and I believe that no one can ever have enough. I have yet to hear of anyone dying from a love overdose but I am attempting to be the first. Give. Give to your neighbors, cousins, brothers, sisters, and friends. Give them all you have, no matter if that’s your last dollar to the person standing on the street corner holding the sign that asks for help, or if it is just a hug. Give it all and instead of counting who returns the favor- just have faith that although someone may not repay you right now, you may have changed that person’s life forever. They might spend the rest of their lives repaying that debt a million times over to other people they meet. So give. Give it all. Be limitless in your love.
O – Omnipresent. For some people this is God, for me this is just a piece of what it means to be loved. My love is with you whether I am there or not. My love will hunt you down if you try to hide from it. My love will smack you in the face when you feel like you don’t deserve to be loved. My love is there no matter if we haven’t talked in 10 minutes/hours/days/weeks/years. My love is there. I think of one of my favorite quotes when I think of my omnipresent love: “If you are at the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on!” My love is the knot at the end of your rope- maybe you’ll never need but it’s still there just in case… omnipresent.
V – Voracious. My love is voracious. It is given everything that I have. I believe in miracles because I believe that love has karma and that miracles might actually just be karma for love given out. The more you love the more you get love in return. The more voraciously you pour into your love, the more you can get back. Think of love like a swimming pool filling with water. The more water/love you have the better off you are. It is hard to float in an inch or two of water but the more you add the easier it becomes, and much like floating- love requires trust. You can’t love voraciously if you are afraid; just like you can’t float if you are focus on sinking. As Peter Pan says: “All you need if faith and trust, and a little bit of Pixie Dust.” I’m running low on pixie dust so I just double up on faith and trust- it seems to suit me just fine.
E – Eternal. My love is eternal. Alive/dead/married/divorced/widowed/in school/out of school- it doesn’t matter. I have been betrayed in some the most horrendous ways possible by some of the very people who were trusted to keep me safe, but I still love these people. I cant stop myself from doing it because love isn’t about what you deserve… I get to love you even if you don’t want me to because only I get to decide my own feelings. Now, I don’t get to push my love on you or make you feel uncomfortable, but I do get to love you all the same.
“Love is patient. Love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices in truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always preserves. Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues they will be stilled; where there is knowledge it will pass away.” 1 Corinthians 13: 4-8
