Can You Feel The LOVE?

Celebrating LOVE with my LOVE.
     After 15 years of marriage, I knew that it wasn’t necessary to get all worked up while we were looking for parking for our "date day" at the "I Still Do” marriage conference. It didn’t matter if I would've had detailed information of the exact parking garage including the address and the cost. It didn’t matter that my husband was probably doing the exact opposite and winging it. It didn’t matter because, he has proven over and over again that he ALWAYS gets us to our destination on time.  We’ve had a couple of close calls that may have involved sprinting but we have NEVER missed a date.  

     So…I could breath, sit back and relax.  Since I was not worrying myself over when, how, and where we were going to find a parking space, I was able to fully tune into the present moment. I felt the energy that vibrated stronger and stronger as we approached the Verizon Center. I recognized that energy. It was love...PURE LOVE! Husbands held their wives extra tight. Wives leaned in a little closer to their husbands. Regardless of our differences and circumstances for being there, we all had one thing in common…we all could feel LOVE in the air!

      The biggest take away from the conference was the reminder of the importance to invest in our relationships. Not just husband/wife relationship but ALL relationships that are important to us. It is so easy to let the hustle and bustle of everyday life get in the way of us truly connecting with the people we LOVE. But LOVE is essential to our happiness.

"There is only one happiness in this life, to love and to be loved." 
 - George Sand

The greatest gift we can share is LOVE. LOVE is patient.  LOVE is kind..LOVE never fails (1 Corinthians 13:4,8). LOVE is a very strong energy that can be felt as soon as we enter its presence.  Take the time to connect with someone you LOVE today.  I guarantee that it will be time well spent.

  1. Love is so powerful. Even when you don't wanna love, love takes over!

  2. Great post! The best advice I ever got when I was very young was that true love is a pure perfect gold circle. Like a wedding band. And if you or your partner let negativity, bitterness etc... in, it can break that bond. That circle. Thank you for reminding me of that and sharing this with me :-)

  3. I love everything about this post! It's nice to know that marriage still means something to others. Congratulations on 15 years!!

  4. Congratulations on 15 years. Love is a powerful thing when nurtured properly.

  5. Congratulations, friend! Marriage is so precious, and it takes work and dedication to cultivate and nourish - this makes the love grow stronger! Love is a powerful thing, and the reflection of God in this world. Thanks for sharing!

  6. Sounds like you had a nice time - congrats on 15 years!!!
