“Your greatest power is to show love, to receive love, and to be love.” Oprah Winfrey
Everything has rules and instructions, even love. When starting a new job, you’re issued a handbook outlining the company’s rules and regulations. When making a major purchase-a car, a refrigerator, a washer, and a dryer, it is accompanied by an owner’s manual filled with instructions. These rules and instructions are provided to ensure that we know how to operate the item and for maximum longevity, how best to care for it. And love is NO different. It, too, comes with rules and care instructions. But do we read the instructions? Yesterday I attended a beautiful outdoor beach wedding. The bride looked absolutely stunning as she walked down the aisle toward her tearfully excited groom. The minister who performed the ceremony eloquently laid out for this young couple, and for those of us listening, the RULES OF LOVE. As I watched this young couple exchange their personal vows and recite the traditional ones too, I began to think about the RULES OF LOVE. Do you believe there are RULES OF LOVE? Do you know what they are? Do you practice the RULES OF LOVE in your relationSHIPS? So for this week’s blog, let’s talk SHIP about the RULES OF LOVE!!!
