I love you through ...
We had a wonderful speaker at church on Sunday and he gave a talk about love.
He talked about 3 types of love.
The first type - I love you because ...
Because you are beautiful, because you are funny, because you are rich, because you are famous, because you dress nice, because you are never sick, because you never make mistakes, because you are popular ... (the list goes on)
The second type - I love you if ...
If you look gorgeous everyday, if you have a good job, if you make dinner at 5 pm every day, if you have 7 children, if you keep the house clean, if you pay the bills, if you drive a nice car, if you laugh at everything I say ... (the list goes on)
The third type - I love you through ...
I love you through tough times, I love you through illness, I love you through the education years, I love you through the lean times, I love you through the happy days, I love you through the young years, I love you through the older years, I love you through stress, I love you through winter, I love you through spring and summer too, I love you through your good and bad days ... (the list goes on)
It's Thursday night and I'm still thinking about his talk.
It's easy to get caught up in the - I love you if and the I love you because zones.
Love, the true and lasting type, makes it through everything.
That's how the Savior loves ... And HE is the ultimate example of love.
