The Way You Love Me

Love by Musiq Soulchild

I have never been a materialist person, don’t get me wrong I love to be showered with gifts, to be sent flowers just because or to get an unexpected surprise when someone will just show up even for a moment to see you smile. I realized something greater than any materialist gift that anyone can give is the gift of love. The moment someone has opened up their heart to not only love you, but to be loved. You shouldn’t have to wait one day a year for someone to “show” you that they love you if so you may need to revisit why they are with you or better yet why are you with them. Holidays or special occasions should only enhance what they have done for you all year. Anyone can give you things and still not give you their heart. You should be able to look in their eyes and see that they care deeply for you, the way they look at you with such compassion and when they smile it brings warmth to your heart. They talk to you with such respect, they are detailed when it comes to caring for you. It’s not just what they say to you but how they say it or even in their silence you can hear their heart beat. When someone can give you their heart they have given you the greatest gift in the world because they are given you all of them. When they give you them they will move heaven and earth just to please you. 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 “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’s not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trust, always hopes, always preservers. Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they be stilled; where there is knowledge it will pass away.” Jesus could have called thousands of Angels to come and rescue him at any given point but because His unconditional love for us he suffered, hung on the cross, bleed and died and rose again just to save us. What greater love is this that a man would lay down his life for a friend. True love comes with no strings attached, with no conditions, but to give of themselves unconditionally. You may say well how will I know? Oh! You will know the moment they give you their heart, it will show in the way that they love you. #CLEANTHISHOUSE
