enough is enough - i'm starting to get mad

no, this post is not about school, or people or senoritis. its about email. and myspace. and facebook. and just about every site you go to. i am getting sick of all this bs about "find your true love" and the "prefect person" yada yada yada. and they always have these girls trying to look like porn stars. its so stupid. these people have no clue about what love is.
Love has nothing to do with a sexy person. it has nothing to do with how much you want someone. it has nothing to do with compatability. it has nothing to do with "naughty or nice" (this one really ticks me off - it is so stupid). love has nothing to do with finding the one.
love is a choice. it is a way of living. it is the parents who spanks their child for doing the wrong thing so that they can instill a biblical view of life. it is the parent who sometimes lets a teen leard the hard way when that teen won't listen anymore. it is a mother getting up in the middle of the night to check on a sick child. it is a dad coming home from work early to spend time with his wife and kids. it is a freind who takes the keys from a drunken friend....
....its is letting people who hate you drive nails through your hands and let you die on a cross. it is rising again and sending a special tool to those who follow you so that they may learn and grow in you....
love is not a feeling. love is, was, and always will be...

...the Son of God.

Love is not physical. The world doesnt understand that. I honestly don't think they ever will.

Couldnt have said it better this world seems to think that love is completely on a physical basis, and when that physical "fire" goes out its time to find another. I know it sickens me with the rate of divorces and such I can't imagine how God feels with us after he outpoored love to every person on this earth when he died on the cross. So as for Dr. Phil or Oprah or whoevers love solution or true love whatever its all worthless, Jesus on the Cross is the perfect example of unconditional, unchanging love.
