STOP AND THINK – Who is wise in love, love most, say least. (Lord Alfred Tennyson, 19th century Poet Laureate of Great Britain)

Many are the words of love. Gifted artists have given us innumerable songs, poems, and prose tributes to the illusive qualities of love. While almost everyone appreciates hearing words of love, the best evidence of caring for someone is not in the quantity of prose, but in the thoughtful actions that encourage, benefit, and uplift the loved one.

Let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth. (1 John 3:18)
