Be The Blessing: Have you ever been in love?

Be The Blessing: Have you ever been in love?

By Tina Chandler

Just my luck! Valentine’s Day is already done this year. Shucks! I wanted to write something funny, clever and romantic! Oh well, you’ll just have to settle for me writing something funny, clever and romantic... Wait. What? Oh well. Let’s try this.

Have you ever been in love? I mean truly in love. Sure, we’ve all experienced puppy love, first love, dreamy love, googlied-eyed head-over-heels love, love based on respect, friendship, face-value love (AKA skin-deep love) - the list is endless. But have you ever been truly in love? What does that mean? Probably many different things, so here’s my take.

I love my husband. I love him because when I first met him, I thought he was so cute. He had a great smile and was always saying something funny. He was clueless that I was even interested in getting to know him. That changed, but boy it took a while for him to catch on! Fast forward 20+ years and here we are. My love for him has changed so much in the past couple of decades, but at the core I am still head over heels crazy in love with that 22 year old fresh-faced cutie. I imagine that for some of you, love changes over time too.

Abiding love – that’s what I have with my husband now. Nothing is a bed of roses all the time, but hey, who wants to lay on thorns anyway! He is steady, sure, loving, sweet, smelly, belchy, sports-crazed and any other "manly" thing you can think of. I wouldn’t change a single thing about our lives together. Not even the smelly moments! He has taught our son that it’s a man’s place to smell up the house! Oh boy! But abiding? Yes, I really mean that. I’ve gone from hearts-aflutter to a deep sense of peace and comfort, but I still get the tingly feeling in my heart when he kisses me, holds my hand or is just in the room with me. Yes, I’m sappy but I can’t help it!

1 Corinthians 13:13 (ESV)

So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.
